No. That's a lot of real estate for a modern shifter that doesn't require a linkage.
In your opinion. Which you are entitled to. Manual is not a shifter. It's a transmission. My first manual was a 3 speed on the column. My last was a 5 speed on the floor. I had a Corvair with the two speed auto shifter lever on the dash. Over the years I have just got in an driven my vehicles. Which I will do with the Maverick if it ever arrives. I have never given any thought to the shift levers or buttons until I joined the Maverick forums.There should only ever be 3 shifters.
