Re: 2012 or 2013 SRT8???

I'll want something with rev matching on downshifts. Engineers have stated that's impossible with the current five speeder. Tests state downshifts are harsh with current gearbox, making the paddles a gimmick.

I'm wondering to myself, if they will introduce a similar gearbox to the revolutionary wet clutch automatic (wet clutch instead of torque convertor!) as seen in some new AMG Merc, or even a DSG style box?

I'm not sure if many of you understand the terminology, there doesn't seem to be a lot of tech sav people on this forum?

I'm not sure what Scott means by that, though I'm sure he'll let me know soon enough..... I just hope he realizes this is a Discussion forum, not a Fan Page.

Marlin ....I think it was the statement about this forum and that we're not tech savey enough for you. That wasn't a discussion type statement.

Re: 2012 or 2013 SRT8???

Oh maybe it was misunderstood, or I didn't write it Properly, I'm on my phone.
Apologies if anyone was offended.

But it remains that a lot of folks dont understand a lot of things mechanical, it doesn't mean they're stupid, just that there area of expertise lies elsewhere. It must do!

Re: 2012 or 2013 SRT8???

Are there any indications that the 2013 jeep will get the 8" screen and info center that the 2012 charger and 300 SRT's have?

Re: 2012 or 2013 SRT8???

Negative.
2014 is the scheduled refresh with different electrical backbone that allows that new display and Nav. Hopefully the 6 speed or 8 speed tranny will replace the archaic 5 speed.

So when we say 2014 are we talking about model year or calendar year? 2014... as in the model that will come out the summer / fall of 2013... 2 years from now?

Re: 2012 or 2013 SRT8???

According to the latest Car and Driver, Sept. Issue, for MY2012 GC's, the 5.7L will have a 6 speed but the V6 and SRT8 will continue with the 5 speed transmissions.

BUT..."be patient, SRT8 fans: Chrysler has an 8 speed autobox coming soon."

So you can wait 2-3 years or you can say forget the 8-speed, I want the 5-speed NOW!
or both....
