Re: 2012 hemi 6speed ?

I test drove one yesterday and going back today to compare it to a 5 speed. I like the response on the 6 speed. I talked to the guy who takes care of all of my service on my WJ. He told me it was the same transmission as the 6 but new guts. However he did say the biggest complaint of the 5 speeds is the hard shifting and the transmission is "hunting" for a gear at 60 mph. He told me he'd go for the 6 speed (I actually trust this guy) over the 5 but he has the 5 speed in his truck for years now and loves it. And said you cant go wrong with either really.

Re: 2012 hemi 6speed ?

In many other threads, it seems to be confirmed that the 2011 with latest TSB (post May) is identical to the 2012 except for the D/6 displayed in the EVIC. Any difference is attributed to the usual car to car differences. There is a slightly different torque converter, but from what I've read there don't seem to be any difference in function or performance, certainly nothing to affect a buy decision except for marketing potential.

The SRT8 uses a different tranny altogether, the same one used in the V6 I think.
