A FULLY AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
up to 16% more torque versus manual transmission
One of the main innovations on Ducato range is the 9-speed automatic transmission. Available on 140, 160 and 180 HP engines, it is a latest-generation torque-converter system, which delivers an extremely relaxing, enjoyable driving experience. The 9 speeds enable optimal use of the torque available and the most comfortable ride.
In "Automatic" mode, with the "Drive" setting, the control module selects and engages the gear in response to the different driving conditions: speed, load and gradient. The new Ducato offers higher torque available in the 160hp and 180hp, with optimal usage, reliability and long-lasting durability.
In case of frequent gear changes and in particularly tough conditions (on hills, for example), the "Autostick" mode lets the driver stay in a lower gear, improving performances and preventing overheating. In autostick mode, the instrument panel display shows the mode and the gear.
