According to Tata Motors, the G85 six speed automatic gearbox comes with 6 ratios and one or two over drive gears totally depending on the application. The first to fourth gears comprise of triple synchronizer whereas the fifth, sixth along with reverse gears have double synchronizer.
The new G85 six speed automatic gearbox has been developed by DANA, who is a transmission maker for Tata Motors.
