8-speed transmission on 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8?
 
According to WKJeeps.com's exclusive advanced information found HERE, the 2013 Grand Cherokee will have an 8-speed transmission. Does anybody know if SRT8 model will get it at that time too? Thanks for your time and help :)

That information is 1)not very new and 2) simply an educated guess made by Milous based on the tentative planning that could change at any time.

Woah woah WOAH on your educated GUESS....

you need to start READING more of what Milious is SAYING.......

It would be different if you said, "yeahhhhhhh the new jeep is getting an 8 speed tranny"

Milious works for Jeep, It's not just an EDUCATED GUESS....

slow your roll captain.

First off I said nothing derogatory toward Milous and I know he works for jeep and is a wealth of knowledge. However all I said was this was simply an educated guess by him and thats exactly what it is. No one at Jeep can tell when exactly the new 8 speed tranny will be available. So why dont you go easy Bro and start READING a little more and then you will be educated and learn what educated guess means.\!!!!

So... does anybody know if the "tentative" plans include an 8-speed on the 2013 Grand Cherokee SRT8?

there are plans for the ZF....but no mention of how many speeds...could be 6-8.

Whichever way it goes (6 or 8 speed).... keep in mind the cost of these gearboxes in a few years time when they are out of warranty.

The 6 speed ZF is a common fitment to our Australian Ford Falcon since 2006 (after many MANY years of a bulletproof 4 speeder) and only now are we realising that although a vast improvement in drivability and incremental fuel consumption improvements, the HUGE negative is that these ZF's are completely sealed units, not repairable, and cost in the order of $8 to $9 thousand dollars to replace!!!!! .... not short of the value of the entire car second hand!

these ZF's will be built in the US. i dont think they are sealed units
