Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any word on the 850RE transmission and how it's performing? I read that it was supposed to be on the 2017 2wd 3.6l models. Just wondering how it's working out and if for 2018 it will be added to the 4wd 3.6l JGC since a lot of things have changed recently on future models.

I can't find any reference to the 850RE currently being used on the 17 GC's. They do mention it for the 18 Wrangler.

It also wouldn't make much sense that if it was on the 2WD it wouldn't also be on the 4WD.

This was on wk2jeeps for 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I have no idea if this happened or not -
New: 2nd generation 850RE transmission (All 4x2 models except CRD)

I also did some searching and found this advert for a 2017 listing the 850re transmission

Same answer as previous...when Milous has enough information, he'll setup the MY18 Features and Pricing thread.

But we're impatient! We need Milous to get his "Mission Impossible" on and break into Jeep headquarters and get us the inside scoop!

Or maybe we need to read up on those CIA tactics that were just revealed to get the Jeep inside secrets.......

Are you saying that if we ask every day the information won't magically appear?

If you ask every day, your wish will (eventually) come true!

Is it annoying?

Was that a 2wd or 4wd model Altitude?
