Last manual I had was my 1953 Studebaker. Not ever going back. The closer I get to a self-driving car the better I like it.
The closer we get to Star Trek level transporters the better. Beam me up Scotty!

These are current 2019 Vehicles (small cars, performance, trucks, SUV) that offer Manual Transmission:
That list will continue to shrink, but I should have been more precise. The OP was frustrated that a MT wasn't available in all trims. When you get away from performance vehicles, I think that is rare. Audi used to be one, you could get a decked - out A4 with a MT (I had one), but no more. From your list, looks like BMW is still there, but I suspect that will change. MTs used to provide better mileage, but with CVTs and 8 to 10 speed auto's, I don't think that is the case anymore and I'm not sure there is a market for a 10-speed MT.

I get it. You like it simple. It is that simple.

Manual transmission drivers buy them because they enjoy the driving experience it provides. You can rag on it as much as you like. I enjoy not having a computer choose what gear I'm in. Others do.

It's not about better mileage, which is debatable at best, or how some people want to just steer their car like a golf cart. Some want a fully autonomous car & don't care about the experience at all. Awesome.

No need to hate on manuals or think for some reason it makes you extra intelligent because you can't or won't drive one. You simply prefer to push "D" and go. You're definately not alone ;)

Simple answer is because nobody wants them. I bought a new 2020 base 6 speed for $14,600 in July. It was the only 6 speed they had, and only had PDI miles in it
