GC CRD with 8-speed?

Hi,
This is my first post in this great forum! Hello to all of you, way out of Belgium.
I test drove the GC CRD over the weekend. Great car. By end of the year I intend to order it. It will bet a Stone White Overland. Today it has still the 5-speed transmission but I have seen that an 8-speed may be introduced. Has anyone the latest status on this matter. I just would like to avoid that at the time I receive my GC with 5-speed, it would be availabe with the 8-speed.
Thanks
Chris

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

The only information on an 8-speed at these stages, is in the new 300c.

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

You will most likely see it in 2014 for the CRD given the limited info. Not to mention that once you order, some have waited as long as 4-6 months to get their vehicle. Means that your at least 2 years away from realizing your dream.

Re: GC CRD with 8-speed?

I haven't taken delivery of my 2012 V8 Overland yet, but the 2011's five speed shifted very smoothly during my two test drives. I live in hilly central Connecticut and the seven-speed transmission in my wife's 2012 Infiniti M37x shifts too often for my taste. I think that it's optimized for gas mileage, but I wish that it would just pick a gear and stick with it. I guess what I'm trying to say about the eight-speed transmission is that you should be careful what you wish for. . . .
