Re: when the 8 speed comes out will you be able to upgrade to it?
If you want it that bad unfortunately your going to have to end up trading your 2012 in. Swapping stuff like that just isnt feasible and if it can even be done expect it to cost A LOT!!!! But on a better note, if you do end up trading, it sounds like 2014 is the year for a re-fresh so there will be a pretty good amount of other changes as well besides just the tranny. I recently bought my 2012 Overland V6 and if the 2014 has some sweet changes and the 8 speed is a huge improvement I would certainly consider upgrading myself. I would just get the same exact color and no one would even know I bought a new vehicle (unless the front and rear changes are significant) :-)
