      Just to be clear, there is an automatic, and there is a DDCT, which operates like an automatic. I'm trying to visualize what the shifting pattern would be in a DDCT manual.

      so how many different automatics is there now? lol 2 or 3?
      anyways that just doesnt make sense to me, why have a clutch if its an auto? so you have all the agony of pushing in a clutch pedal, yet not the fun of powershifting? lol lame

      There isn't a clutch pedal, that's the point.

      There are 2 automatics, the Powertech for the 2.0 and 2.4 and the DDCT for the 1.4. The DDCT is basically the manual with extra parts added on to automatically shift it and add a park "gear." The dual clutch allows it to shift more smoothly and more quickly than having a computer actuated single clutch. Dual clutch transmissions typically have a dual main shaft with even gears on one and the odd gears on the other. The dual clutches switch between those two shafts.

      And, technically speaking, automatic transmissions have multiple internal wet clutches used to select the gear ratios.

      Re: Dual Clutch

      Ferrari has had an "automatic" like this for years, used in Formula even (paddle shifters, no clutch)
      Basically small servos do the job of clutching and shifting, and the computer controls it all.

      Why do this instead of just using a regular automatic? Efficiency.

      Power to the wheels with traditional automatics is lower than with a clutch and stick shift, due to power loss in the torque converter.

      With mileage becoming more and more important, more efficient transmissions (those with less power loss) will start to become more and more common. CVT's are becoming more popular as well.

      All automatics still have a clutch within the transmission. The clutch and gears are selected by a computer versus you having to physically push in a clutch pedal and shift gears. It is all done for you but they still have some type of clutch. The DDCT is just a new clutch design that Dodge is using on this car. Don't feel bad. When I first heard about it I thought that the DDCT was in both manuals and autos. I found out later through a link provided on here that I was wrong.
