I thought Milous posted on the Red site that all the vehicles EXCEPT the SRT line was getting the new transmissions.

Re: 8-speed transmission on 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8?

I meant in ChryCo brands...there actually talk of a 9 speed in some chryco vehicles.

And...that IS NOT Milous on the red site

Yikes!

Well hopefully by the time the new ZF comes out, Chrysler will once again have to resort to the "Lifetime Powertrain Warranty" like I have on my 08 Laredo

Re: 8-speed transmission on 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8?

This is interesting, I really hope its the 8 speed non-sealed US version because from what Marlins saying that just isnt going to work. Plus the 8 speed should give us little better economy and closer ratios with the proper setup will be much more efficient through the gears.

Personally, I dont think there's any way Chrysler can afford to be swapping out $8-$9k trannys if/when there's issues so Id assume they'd have models that can be rebuilt if need be but this is all logical speculation haha
