Trust me, their info is incorrect.

The new 8-speed will make its debut this fall in the 2012 Charger 3.6L and the 2012 300 3.6L.

ALL 2012 SRT8 models will feature the W5A580 5-speed auto, with the Challenger offering an optional 6-speed manual.

Re: SRT8 WK2 coming in summer 2011

The article says it will come with a 5-speed. And at some point the 8-Speed will be offered... some point is probably MY2013.
Milous, any news on whats new for the 2012 Grand Cherokee yet? I really need to replace my current vehical and if nothing really changes for 2012 I don't wanna wait and I'll get a 2011 now.

Only one source is 100% correct:


Road and track:

"Even better news is that SRT8ís extra oomph will be fed through a new 8-speed automatic transmission which should eventually make its way to the entire Grand Cherokee lineup."

Car and Driver:

"We expect it eventually will be backed by an eight-speed automatic. At launch though, the JGC SRT8 will likely carry the existing five-speed auto."

Jeep Garage:

"The 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 will continue with the W5-A580 5-speed transmission."

Thats pretty dumb. If you dont like the Carbon, pull it out, get it professionally painted black.

Well I am hoping the dealer will swap with a summit or overland. I am not spending $50k+ to have cheap looking carbon fiber trim, just to spend another $2-3k to change out to wood.
