Upgraged transmission/MPG in 2012?
 
Read some press this weekend about an 8 speed tranny on the V6 starting in 2012. This would increase the mpg and allow smoother acceleration/shifting. Is this confirmed? I am trying to decide between a 2011 Overland and 2012 Overland and this along with a few other details may sway my decision. The dealer isnt sure....

The 8 speed is not coming until 2013, the V8 is getting a 6 speed unit in 2012.

Exactly! The 6spd is going in the HEMI V8 for 2012. The 8spd is going in the V6 for 2013 and probably not until 2014 for the HEMI V8.
