Hopefully the ratio info will be made public soon as these are starting to show up at the dealerships. You would think they changed at least some ratios as this tranny has been around for a long time. Why only now would they rename it a 6sp for marketing reasons?

Already seen that article. It's from June and nothing official from Chrysler. I am looking for the Official 2012 Jeep GC spec sheet pdf that lists all of the ratios. The SRT8 has one and is available on the Jeep website.

2011 5.7 L V8 Hemi - multi-speed transmission

2nd gear is different on the way up then it is on the way down.
(Not sure what the tsb update did to this).

1 --> 2a --> 3 --> 4 --> 5
5 --> 4 --> 3 --> 2b --> 1



2012 5.7 L V8 Hemi - 6 speed transmission

1 --> 2 --> 3 --> 4 --> 5 --> 6
6 --> 5 --> 4 --> 3 --> 2 --> 1

Sorry if this is a repeat of what's already been said.

If 2012's are here, you would think jeep.com would be marketing it on their own website. Very strange.

Still a lot of 2011's to be sold. Dealers get upset when the parent company pushes the new models too early.

Official launch is not until September 1st. The web page will likely not change until right around then.

Even though the 2012's are available to order and a few have shown up on lots already, they're not going to heavily promote it to give dealers a better chance of getting rid of their 2011 inventory.

I can only do screenshots of this,but this is actual published by Chrysler info.It is on DealerConnect,which you can only access if you work at a dealer or Chrysler.This is out of the actual service info, we do not get actual manuals anymore.


Its the same exact trans as before.

I don't think Jeep would choose to maintain different software for each year. If it's mechanically identical to the 2011, I'm confident that the recent TSB makes 2011's identical to 2012's. The timing was right as well for the TSB, right before 2012's went to production.
