In this day and age you haven't made it as a global automotive powerhouse until you've developed your own six-speed automatic transmission. Ford and GM have developed one together and now Hyundai wants one, too. The development of anew six-speed auto will be done in-house by Hyundai, which means a previous joint venture with supplier ZF Friedrichshafen on the gearbox will be dissolved. The South Korean automaker plans to have the transmission ready for use in all-wheel drive applications by 2007, so we're guessing it will show up first in the new Santa Fe.
