Re: 2012 now or 2013 next year worth the wait?
Just got the 12 with the v6 and 5 speed. It replaced my '11 T&C which Chrysler bought back from me, (another story). Anyway, the T&C had the six speed. What a pain in the ass when on a highway with hills. Had to manually drop it into fifth all the time in order to prevent constant downshifting. Don't have the problem with my new Grand. I can imagine what an 8 speed will do. By the way, the tranny was not the rreason for the buyback.
2015 Grand Cherokee Summit, Deep Auburn Pearlcoat, Sienna brown/black.
