No it has a transmission by definition! Or are you going to argue with the Oxford and Webster's dictionaries just to contradict what I said in some manner shape or form? The definition literally includes every part of the "system". If you were using the term incorrectly to describe a device that changes gear ratios, don't assume others were as well. The term, or more appropriately the device, you are referring to is called the differential and they are usually a set ratio.It has a "transmission system," which means a system that transmits power from one point to another. What is usually meant by the abbreviated term "transmission" is a mechanical device that changes the gear ratio between the ICE and the wheels.
