Just a heads up: This isn't a full, comprehensive list of all the cars with manual transmissions. Would you thumb through 100 slides? Didn't think so.

The F10 M5 continues to offer a six-speed manual, thanks to overwhelming US demand. It's an option, rather than standard equipment. Sadly, this will be the last generation of M5 to offer a manual.

The Regal also used to come with a six-speed manual transmission, but it was discontinued for 2016.

Mid-size trucks are one of the segments where the manual continues to thrive. You can find sticks on the Colorado, Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier.

It's only available in one specific configuration, however: 2WD, extended cab, with the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine.

2016 Chevrolet SS

The SS is one of, if not the last full-size sedan to offer a manual transmission as standard equipment.

That manual transmission mates to a sonorous 6.2-liter V-8 and rear-wheel drive.

The Charger's floorpan was not designed to accommodate a manual transmission, so you can't swap one over from the Challenger without a hell of a lot of work.

2016 Jeep Wrangler

A manual transmission is standard equipment on every two-door Wrangler, because this SUV is older than time itself.

In fact, it would be hard to imagine a world where a Jeep Wrangler didn't come with a manual, even as an option.

While you can't get one on the Passat, you can still opt for a six-speed manual on the swoopier-roof CC.
