Lightbulb Report: 10-speed automatic coming from Hyundai?

Filed under: Sedan, Technology, Hyundai, Kia, Luxury

Motor Trend is reporting that Hyundai and Kia are working on creating a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The dual-headed Korean automaker unveiled a new eight-speed automatic gearbox in the 2012 Hyundai Genesis Sedan. Along with revisions to the 3.8-liter V6 engine, the transmission helped the model generate up to two miles per gallon better on the highway than its predecessor.

According to Motor Trend, news of the 10-speed transmission comes courtesy of unnamed sources inside Bloomberg, and the technology could show up in a production model as soon as 2014. Beyond that, details are notably scarce. Two extra cogs would likely help improve fuel economy at a moderate cost to the company and consumer, especially if engineers were able to translate much of the design of the eight-speed into the new gearbox.

Man at what point do we say enough gears? lol seriously though, i'm thinking these trannies gotta be built right to be able to handle the power of these cars, V6 at 333 and 5.0 at 429, and i'm sure by 2014 power will be even higher..
