exclusively via a 6-speed automatic transmission. 

Fuel consumption figures indicate that the new Azera will be able to retrn 23 mpg in a combined cycle (20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway) meaning is consumes less than the 2012 Maxima, LaCrosse, Taurus and ES350 and the same as the 2011 Avalon or the 2012 TL.
