You don't understand the competition between the two.

I mean, Ford and GM did kinda co-develop a 9spd FF and a 10spd FR/F-4WD transmission together.... but normally, yeah, competition is as competition does.

I mean not to mention that a DCT would increase the cost over a CVT quite a bit, and that the Mitsu DCT unit was for transverse applications not longitudinal applications, and that it prone to overheating when driven hard.

Mitsu will come out with a new lancer EVO in sedan form right after Nissan releases a 240 successor in coupe form.
