Well just to note, it has been confirmed in car and driver article it doesn't rev match as expected
But as far as I understand, at least w/ the nag trans in the srt8 for now, there is no way to have it really revmatch without changing all tcm/pcm tuning and some other things
Only because in an auto the transmission is never really disengaged from the motor and during a downshift in an auto the tcm would have to somehow signal the valvebody and stop the hydraulic operation for a brief moment so that the converter fluid pumped into the VB doesn't signal the system to change gears immediately. THEN the pcm would have to signal the throttle control module to blip the throttle to increase the revs the calculated difference for that gear and THEN the hydraulic operation would have to reengage the next lower planetary set immediately. With this all said, I dont know how feasible it would be to make this all happen and the costs of it. So is it possible? YES. Is it likely to happen ever for the WA580, NO.
Maybe w/ the new 8-speed (if they can make it work w/ the 6.4) itll be incorporated, I mean enough demand and enough hype building to get the word to them, and maybe they will make it happen.
I think they have bigger issues though w/ this high (for a Jeep) price-tag. In my mind its still a deal as they given us A LOT more for our $ with this new one it seems. Sure its a Jeep but were trying to move up in th car world and price will and has to reflect that if you want true quality materials. Im not against it, Id love to see Jeep climb up to the BMW/Range with one of their models.
