Does the Ford F-150 come with a manual transmission?
I’d like to get a used Ford F-150, but I know they stopped producing manual transmissions sometime in the last decade or so. What’s the most recent model year of the Ford F-150 with a manual transmission?
Answer provided by
You’re right—the last Ford F-150 produced with an available manual transmission was in the 2008 model year. However, it had to be paired with a V6 engine. The last model year in which you can find a manual F-150 with a V8 engine is 2003.
The difficulty in finding a manual transmission pickup truck isn’t just a Ford issue. Very few manufacturers make any manual transmission vehicles at all, and this number is especially dwindling for trucks and SUVs. Here’s a rundown of the new manual transmission pickup trucks available on the market since 2018:
- Chevrolet Colorado (2018)
- GMC Canyon (2018)
- Nissan Frontier (2018 and 2019)
- Ram HD 2500 and 3500 (2018)
- Toyota Tacoma (2018 to 2022)
- Jeep Gladiator (2020 to 2022)
You read that right—there are only two pickup trucks currently produced for North American markets that offer a manual transmission today. That means the hunt for a used manual pickup truck will get tougher as time goes on, and you may have to settle for either an older model year or a newer truck with an automatic transmission.
