2015 transmission in ecodiesel - 845re or 8hp70?

Just reading through a few things and wondering if the 2015 diesel is now coming with the 845re transmission?

Eg look at this tsb http://wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_2100314a.pdf

That mean that diesel is getting the lighter duty transmission?

Thanks

I see something about 3.0 gas engine, but nothing about diesel. Is the 3.0 gas engine an export only engine or is it a typo?

Found this doc look under Trans. http://wk2jeeps.com/pdf/2015_wk2_Sta...ent_Canada.pdf

Also on jeep.ca site when you build a 2015 it shows the eco as having the torqueflite and strangely gives two options for the hem model; one mentions 8hp70 for the hemi.

The 3.0L gas is used in the Chrysler 300 (LX) as explained in the TSB. Like the 3.6L gas, it uses the 845RE transmission.

Nothing in this TSB applies to the 3.0L diesel or it's heavier duty 8HP70 transmission.
