    Many new light trucks don't come with manual shifts, ... automatic only. Look at the owners median ages of new vettes. They sell a minority of Corvettes with the manual shift. Keeping standardization of drive line helps to keep costs and certifications down. Many will enjoy cruising in their new toy and avoid clutching in city traffic. The trend went 180 degrees after the performance days of big blocks.
