The 10R60 automatic transmission is a 10-speed electronically controlled transmission with a main control valve body unit with 8 solenoids and a torque converter. Gear selection is achieved by the control of transmission fluid to operate various internal clutches. The PCM operates the electrical components and provides control of gear selection, shift pressure and torque converter slip.

This transmission includes:

  • Torque converter with an integral converter clutch
  • Electronic shift and pressure controls
  • Four planetary gearsets
  • Two multi-disc holding clutches
  • Four multi-plate drive clutches
  • One one way holding clutch
  • Main control valve body unit
The main control consists of a valve body assembly with solenoids inside the transmission and is controlled by a PCM. The PCM operates the electrical components to provide refined engagement feel, shift feel, and shift scheduling.

Engine power reaches the transmission by a torque converter with an integral clutch. The 10 forward gears and one reverse gear are obtained from 4 planetary gearsets.


The 10R80 automatic transmission is a 10-speed electronically controlled transmission with a main control valve body unit with 8 solenoids and a torque converter. Gear selection is achieved by the control of transmission fluid to operate various internal clutches. The PCM for gas engine applications or the TCM for diesel engine applications operates the electrical components and provides control of gear selection, shift pressure and torque converter slip.

This transmission includes:

  • Torque converter with an integral converter clutch
  • Electronic shift and pressure controls
  • Four planetary gearsets
  • Two multi-disc holding clutches
  • Four multi-plate drive clutches
  • One one way holding clutch
  • Main control valve body unit
The main control consists of a valve body assembly with solenoids inside the transmission and is controlled by a PCM or a TCM. The PCM or TCM operates the electrical components to provide refined engagement feel, shift feel, and shift scheduling.

My thought on why they haven't issued a correction is it's really a non-issue. You are not losing anything by it not having a 10R80. In fact, we've had more issues with the 80's than any other transmission in the past 12 months. Granted, most is due to software issues, the only difference in description is the 80 can be used behind the light duty diesels and uses a TCM.

What makes you say that? The 10R60 and 10R80 are physically the same size. While I know there won’t be a diesel Explorer, the Police variant features a 10R80. The Hybrid models do as well but the 10R80 is quite different and much longer overall.

All the 10 speeds are built on the same architecture, everyone knows that already. 10R80 is the standard duty version, the 10R140 is for heavy duty applications, the 10R60 is for light duty applications.

Close. The 10R60 and 10R80 are for the most part just internally different. There are some case variations between both but overall they’re externally the same. The 10R140 is an entirely different piece of hardware. Bigger in ever sense. Similar only in the number of gears.

So we have nothing to worry about in getting a 2.7L? That's my engine choice. Thanks for the info.

This is like the 10th thread on the transmission. Why is everyone flipping out over this?
Because several forum members who are neither mechanics, nor mechanical engineers, nor physicists, nor aware of actual specifications / thresholds / limitations have proclaimed that the 60 is objectively wimpier than the 80 because 8>6, and that the 60 is guaranteed to explode within 10k miles of ownership.

Having 8 solenoids sounds impressive. I'll take my Bronco now, thanks.
