Agreed. I think the notion of a "real" off-road vehicle having a manual is phasing out. There are certainly some advantages, dont get me wrong but automatics have come a long way and can now shift faster and more efficiently than the driver with a manual. Not to mention with the advent of descent assist, traction control, controlled-braking, etc I think an automatic will do just fine.
