Never seen it do that. Mine barely goes into 7th in sport mode, even cruising at 80mph. Only way I was able to do it was using the paddles. Wonder if it's a 2015 or SRT thing?


Oh, and WK2jeeps.com seems to imply that graph above is only for 2011-2013 select-terrain.

yes the mds system still works in sport mode, just the gearshift points are slightly higher along with aeromode activated and esc reduced...
