I just got the official word that ours will have the 6 speed and will be picking it up on the 13th at MHSRV. Was just told that they had 5 delivered this week with the 6 speed.

Ask the dealer for a Vin number, then take it to your friendly Ford dealer and ask them to run an Oasis on it. This will tell you exactly what the chassis has.

Why do that when you can do it online for free.
Here one of the links.

I would think if you look on the dash and it says the number 4 right after the "D" for drive then you have the 6 speed..

2016 Ford TorqShift® HD 6-Speed Automatic Transmission
Ford V8 turbo diesel and V10 gas engines are paired with a single transmission that’s designed to match the specific requirements of your application. It’s the Ford TorqShift® HD 6-speed automatic. Torture-tested over many thousands of miles on end, at temperatures to - 40°F.
• Key-life tested with the Ford Power Stroke® turbo diesel at customer-equivalent 350,000 miles
• 3-plate, 2-stage torque converter is designed to handle the heavy power loads of medium-duty applications; fewer rpm are required because the torque converter locks up at lower speeds (down to 900 rpm)
• Robust gear sets upgraded with extra pinion gears for strength and durability
• High-capacity, high-efficiency dual-media fluid filter extends fluid change interval to 150,000 miles, helping lower maintenance downtime
• SelectShift® feature with two driver-initiated modes: Progressive Range Select limits the range of gears to lock out overdrive for consistent speed over hills; Full Manual Mode provides control up and down the gearbox
• Selectable tow/haul mode compensates for grade and load and reduces gear hunting, improving power delivery
Engine braking and selective gearing improve control on downhill grades and help minimize brake wear.

You know it just doesn't matter when you pull the trigger on a new unit, something new and innovative will be out just around the corner. We took delivery of our 364TS back in February and wouldn't trade the 50+ odd days we've spent in it over about 8 separate trips. We have a 6 and 9yr old kids and searched for 3 years to find the right rig for us, and we have been very sad spied with the choice.

It will be interesting to see if this may increase the MPG mileage.

For anyone who has the new transmission in their coach make sure you have the longer shift cables.. They are being upgraded on our new coach before we get it.. More delays but would rather have it right.. They say the original shift cables were to short and not allowing the trans to shift right.. This came from our factory rep..
