Read quite a bit today about Fords PowerSplit CVT system. It IS the same one used by Toyota so that makes me feel better.
Google PowerSplit CVT and there are severL good videos illustrating exactly how it works. It’s a very efficient sys. It is noted for high fuel efficiency overall.
My current Kia Niro has the 6 speed automatic trans and I have been very satisfied with the way it past 4 years…..so after researching the Ford trans in Maverick I’m looking forward to it.

Do you mean it is some sort of actual copy of Toyota's design, or just that they operate on the same basic principles? The former would be better but I'm assuming the latter.

it's the Toyota CVT that was shared w/ Ford a few years ago according to whar I read online.
and if that is indeed certain, I feel more secure now :)

Jatco...Which builds the transmissions is part owned by Toyota...But they also build the dreaded CVT for Nissan...So hopefully this is the gear driven CVT not the bands or chain

What I read FORD and Toyota jointly worked on this system years ago. We will see if FORD's is exactly like Toyota's. I should be close, I presume. But FORD and GM(IKKIE) worked together on their 10 speed and nine speed tranny's. Only for both to walk away from each other. The rivalry is still there folks...LOL Both have had tranny problems. Lets all hope FORD has their DUCKS in a row on this Maverick. Bcause the original Maverick had a few issues in it's first year. After that it was a cheap dependable car. It's motto was (It's Simple). So lets keep this Maverick SIMPLE!

I've read it's the same or similar e-CVT used by Toyota, but I'm curious why the don't just call it an e-CVT, or Powersplit, or literally anything other than plan ole CVT to differentiate it from the junk belt driven ones that fail at 60K

Incorrect. Toyota owns and uses Aisin who also built Ford's first two generations of eCVT transmissions before transitioning to manufacturing them in-house.

I think you are mistaken about Toyota ever being in bed with Jatco. You must not have checked it out.

JATCO became one of the largest suppliers of CVTs, and products from nearly every auto maker have used Jatco transmissions, with major exceptions of Honda Motor Company, who makes their own transmissions, and ToyotaMotor Company, who has always used transmissions made by their Aisin subsidiary.

Once again, Honda & Toyota lead the way most of the time.

Ford's system is designed and made in-house but utilizes patent licensing from Toyota. So...Ford makes it at the Van D_yke Electric Powertrain Center plant in Michigan. Ford engineered it but it uses a functionality Toyota has granted license for.
