GM/Ford 9 speed transaxle.

I didn't even know GM and Ford were working on a 9 speed transaxle together. I knew about the 10 speed. This one has kind of flown under the radar. The '18 Equinox is the 1st application. I've seen lot of commercials for the new Equinox and have never even heard them mention it in the ad. Seems to be similar to the ZF.

This is interesting...

This design “stacks” the planetary sets in line, whereas the ZF nine-speed nests several of them in a package that is shorter in length but much wider.

Also, there is no mention of dog clutches. That might eliminate shift delays and the feeling of acceleration while decelerating/downshifting through the dog clutches.
