8 speed 2012

I know this topic has been covered not sure if 8 speed tranny has ever been confirmed before. I thought they were going 6 speed.

Re: 8 speed 2012

Conventional wisdom was that the 2012 HEMI was getting a 6 speed, and the V6 was keeping the 5 speed until 2013. Not sure if anything has changed?

Re: 8 speed 2012

The fleet guide PDF available on that site says, "...all-new 8-speed transmission mated only to the V6 engine"

On the next couple pages where it starts to list out features, it still lists (in two places) the V6 powertrain configuration as having a Five-Speed Automatic. The second mentioning also says W5A580.

Re: 8 speed 2012

Someone who has ordered a 2012 v6 should be able to check their order sheet. My V8 specifically has the following package code and description.

DG1 - 6-Spd Automatic 65RFE Transmission

Re: 8 speed 2012

I'm really hoping they stick with the 5-speed through the entire MY2012. I think the 5-speed engine/transmission control software could still use a little more tweaking, and I know once they move to a new transmission the chances of this go to zilch.

Re: 8 speed 2012

Is 2013 when the new 8.4 screen will also show up?

They'll have to redesign the entire center stack to accommodate the 8.4. Wouldn't Chrysler wait for the refresh?
