I should have some more solid info on the 2012 models once things are finalized in the next few months.

In a recent interview, Marchionne clearly stated that the 8-speed transmissions would go into vehicles "next summer", which means 2012 models. But it will be slowly integrated into selected models across several model years.
THAT is what interests me...... tell me more oh Master Milous....

Also, if we're to wait until 2014 for a Hemi 8 speed... well, I hate to say it, but the Hemi could well be dead by then. So, I won't be holding my breath for it!

Re: Changes for 2012

I'm thinking that they will add LED tail lights.....doesn't make sense to only have them on the srt8.

I guess that would mean that the SRT-8 isn't coming until 2014 given the fact that it is to use the 8 speed?
