Ranger Raptor Almost Got A 13-Speed Gearbox

According to CarAdvice, the Ranger Raptor could have gotten a different gearbox instead of the 10-speed we've been told of. Ford tested it with everything from 8 to 9-speed transmissions and even went up to as high as 12 and 13. In the end, they found the 10-speed to be the best option. Can;t imagine why it'd need 13 gears in the first place.

Ford: Ranger Raptor 10-speed auto ?very capable?

More gears mean an easier time making use of the powertrain for any specific need from fuel economy to performance. Its why even GT coupes these days have 10 speed transmissions and feel just as good as anything else.

Has anyone been able to find a breakdown of the speed brackets that these gears are divided up into? With 10 gears there's bound to be constant shifting for regular city driving. I'm guessing that 1st to 3rd is 0-30km/h and 3rd to 6th is around 30-65km/h. From what I've been reading its highly unlikely you'll ever get out of 8th gear should you follow the typical highway speed limit of 110km/h. That would suggest you'd need to be going approximately +120km/h to even make use of the final gears. Not sure why they even looked at 12 and 13, as it doesn't look like the truck would spend much time in them.

As far as I know, the Ranger Raptor has a 7.4 gear ratio span in the transmission and they're said to be very evenly steeped. That means the shift will feel uniform when you're going up. Not sure about the exact speeds.
