Those early Taurus 2.3 4 cylinders were nothing like our Fusions! Did Ford sell more than 2 or 3 of them? Yeah, I hope Ford keeps the manual tranny around for us 5 speed bangers! I would not have purchased a Fusion without a manual. Would someone please tell Ford that there are customers waiting for a V6 with a manual! I would have shelled out the extra chash for the 6 if it was offered with a manual. Gotta love choosing your own gear and letting it rip however you please! Forget the automatics, I have had enough of them for this lifetime!

Well, let's say Ford sells 300,000 Fusions and Milans this year, that's 24,500 manual trannys. I'd say that's enough to keep it as an option. I know early Taurus' had sticks as an option (I'm referring to the regular model, not the SHO) but they later dropped it - that almost definitely had to be lack of demand.
