Re: The 8-speed automatic transmission

I think I've read that before; but I'm not sure. Allpar really needs to put dates on their content.

Re: The 8-speed automatic transmission

thats been announced for nearly a year, my manager has a charger with an 8 speed and he loves it. the first hemi it will be behind is slated for the ram line up but there still not 100% sure it will be matched with a V8. its just set-up for the V6 applications now.

Re: The 8-speed automatic transmission

Early indications are we will see it this spring for the MY2013. Sounds like it will only start off on the V6 and the CRD might get it in 1st quarter 2013. V8 will most likely keep the 5 (6) speed.
