List of ZF transmissions

Jump to: navigation, search

This list of ZF transmissions details those automotive transmissions created by the German ZF Friedrichshafen AG engineering company.

There are two fundamental types of motor vehicle transmission:

  • Manual — the driver has to perform each gear change
  • Automatic — once placed in drive (or any other 'automatic' selector position), it selects the gear ratio dependent on engine speed and load automatically.

Furthermore, they may also be manufactured solely as a gearbox, and utilise an entirely separate final drive unit (including its differential) – or be supplied as a transaxle, which includes both the gearbox and final drive unit within one housing.

Cars and light vehicles[edit]

These may be used in motor cars (automobiles), or light commercial vehicles such as car-derived vans.
