Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

[QUOTE=Milous;1241421]


I like the look of this shifter and boot. The boot, for a boot, is sleek without the extra slack in the leather that makes it difficult to clean. I am most thankful that it will provide the driver feedback, so that we can drive intuitively without having to look down to ensure we are in the right gear.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hey Milous,

The design if tactile is nice. Will selecting manual shift mode automatically engage sport mode?

Now could I infer that the Sport mode being part of the Select Terrain system ala SRT, will incorporate a "European Sport Tuned Suspension"???

And the best part!

It doesn't have to be purchased from ZF!

Nothing is wrong with ZF.

Their transmissions are considered among the BEST in the world and are used by more vehicle manufacturers then any other. The 8-Speed ZF in the V8 powered WK2s is far better then the crap that FCA has made.

That's what I meant. I can't figure out why Marlon said that...

I can't either. Thought maybe I missed something. The statement doesn't make any sense to me, at all.

Was Marlon talking about the transmission or just the shifter?

Maybe Chrysler is now building all 8 speeds regardless of engine for 2016.
