Fuel economy for a small crossover. Chrysler already has a CVT instead of making a new transmission. Obviously the 9 speed is going to go in other vehicles but if they are all going to be small 4 cylinders then whats the point?

Chrysler quit using that CVT because it was crap. The 9 speed will be smoother and more efficient and have better performance.

It doesn't look bad. It looks pretty good with the trailhawk trim.

Hey,
CVT is probably one of the worst mechanical ideas ever invented. Ask anyone who has owned a Compass

Gotta disagree with you here. Even with the "im offroading and going through water pics" it still looks absolutely awful.

Of course, that is just my opinion, but man, they really isht the bed with this one.

Re: Jeep Delays 2014 Cherokee Because Of 9-Speed Tranny Issues

From Truck Trend (August 6, 2013):

"To make sure the new CUV is ready to go and in perfect condition by the time it goes on sale, the automaker is adding 1100 workers for a second shift on the Cherokee line at the Toledo plant. Scheduled to start August 19, the additional workers will help make last-minute upgrades to the new 2014 Cherokee before they're released to dealers. Production on the CUV was delayed one month because of issues with the factory and the vehicle itself, with the Cherokee's new ZF nine-speed automatic transmission needing additional calibration, and the factory's tooling not yet complete."

Well, I have to tell you, I own a Patriot that has a CVT and I have no issue with it. I am not saying I like it better than a traditional trans but it is not the nightmare some make it out to be. It has given me no issues and it shifts fine. It does what it is supposed to do.

Shift fine?? A CVT doesn't shift at all. I had a compass rental car once and I could not stand that piece of crap transmission

CVT has 6 speeds/gears/whatever so shift = the change between them. I think you are being overly technical purposely. There is nothing wrong with how the CVT operates. It is actually smoother between gear changes than a traditional trans. You just have to adjust how you drive for optimal performance. Not a big deal.

LOL... Look it here - Continuously variable transmission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. 6 speed is marketing bullshit.

I wouldn't rely on Wiki to bolster an argument. My wife drives a Nissan with a CVT. It has shift points.
