Manual shifting with a 12 speed, almost always 🙂

As far as my research goes, every truck sold now can still be ordered with a manual transmission, even if the company doesn't state it anywhere. (Though I don't know about the new DAF yet, not enough information out about it yet!)

Spoiler

And yes, the Next Gen Scania too!

Ironically, I drive the Scout with automatic because it just works better automatic for me

12-speed auto, mostly overdrive for more flexibility, although direct drive has better fuel economy, 12+2 speed or 16-speed auto for heavy hauling.

Automatics work really well now, much better than in older versions of the game, and you can still switch to sequential if you need to go up or down a gear manually.

I use a 12 gear gearbox with transmission type H shifter. I prefer driving manual because

1. It gives me full option whether I want power or fuel economy.

2. It gives me something more to think about, and not only accelerate and brake. So, it makes the drive more enjoyable for me.

3. It adds another layer of challenge to driving.

Hi! Normally I use 6 speeds with retarder in real automatic because it never exceeded 100km/h and I don't carry much weight so that transmission is more than enough. But since I am now driving the DAF 2021 I am using the 12 speed with retarder. Always automatic I like to simulate the real transmission of each truck.

Hi there. Thanks for your question. I drive sequential because I am using a controller so I have no better option. My favourite transmission would a 12 speed with low low ratios because it gives me the opportunity to carry all type of cargos regardless of their weight.

Hey!

Most of the time I drive automatic, mostly because I'm lazy, but every now and then I'd like to set up my shifter and play with manual H-shifting.
