With 10 speeds, I'll bet the things shift every 900 rpm! Pretty easy to keep the engine running in that 'sweet spot' for maximum efficiency

That's probably the idea - a low RPM gas engine designed to operate as if it were a diesel. Chances are many of the design benefits would be lost if paired to an older transmission. The narrow operating range also helps with hitting emissions targets.

Just like the Ecoboost. It's a diesel that runs on gas.
