2012 Tranny options for V8
I know they are working on an 8-speed for the V6, anything for the V8?

Re: 2012 Tranny options for V8
If anything the 8 spd is for the V8...those tired old 545rfes really need to be put out of their misery already. The initial 8 spd rumors came as a light truck replacement trans...for both gas and diesel. They seem to have panned out as Chrysler will be building that 8 spd ZF here in the US. Whether the V6 will get it we don't know yet, there should be some upgrade coming...especially with the mass of pentastar engines they plan on selling.

And I don't know if its all gonna be in place for will be soon but it may be another year or two.
