Any news as to why the 8-speed tranny is being put off for years? It's already being produced in Europe and gets rave reports.
Perhaps Fiat needs to ensure it is made in this country by UAW personnel? Even then, between now and then they could offer the Euro unit as an extra-cost option on, say, only the Overland so that overseas production would be able to keep up until US production is ramped up.
