Nice try here on the guessing game, but there is no way the 2015 will get a 9-speed. Now a built in cooler?.... Maybe.

I just did a online chat with them. She said someone would email me information about the new 9 speed transmission in the 2015 grand cherokee, it should be interesting to say the least.

My guess ... you spoke to someone who doesn't have a clue, and probably doesn't know the difference between a Grand Cherokee and a Cherokee. They got you off the phone by saying someone will get back to you.

Want to see what transmission options they seem to have;

It was a online chat but im sure your right. If anything having that on their website is going to slow down their sales of the 14 grands by telling them if they wait they can get 2 more miles per gallon and a fancy new transmission but oh well.

Re: Changes for 2015?

Maybe a parallel park assist will be coming with the front and rear sensors. That and the wave your foot thing to open the lift gate when your hands are full. But those may end up being 2016+ anyway.

I doubt a new 9-speed transmission for 2015. Again, maybe 2016+.

Marlon had also mentioned that the 2014 model changes were a MAJOR change on the production line (he said it was 'almost' as bad as the start up of the 2011 model). I doubt they are prepared for another major overhaul so soon.

No 9-speed at all. Not even a slight chance. It's a front-wheel-drive design and couldn't be put into a JGC without completely re-doing the drivetrain. You also couldn't put the Hemi or diesel in front of it.

Changes are bound to be pretty minor until the next gen debut.

Re: Changes for 2015?

The KL has perpendicular park assist - that seems to b e [potentially] just a software add, since the sensors are there, along with the camera.

Or is this a different Bosch module that does this? (That is much more practical for me than the parallel park assist.)

That's what they initially said about the 8spd! The 9spd will come but who knows when.

It physically cannot work, it is a transmission for a fwd vehicle.
