GC CRD with 8-speed?
 
Hi,
This is my first post in this great forum! Hello to all of you, way out of Belgium.
I test drove the GC CRD over the weekend. Great car. By end of the year I intend to order it. It will bet a Stone White Overland. Today it has still the 5-speed transmission but I have seen that an 8-speed may be introduced. Has anyone the latest status on this matter. I just would like to avoid that at the time I receive my GC with 5-speed, it would be availabe with the 8-speed.
Thanks
Chris

They also speculated the 2011, 2012 and the srt was getting it. If the crd gets it....you will know here first.

The only information on an 8-speed at these stages, is in the new 300c.

You will most likely see it in 2014 for the CRD given the limited info. Not to mention that once you order, some have waited as long as 4-6 months to get their vehicle. Means that your at least 2 years away from realizing your dream.

I haven't taken delivery of my 2012 V8 Overland yet, but the 2011's five speed shifted very smoothly during my two test drives. I live in hilly central Connecticut and the seven-speed transmission in my wife's 2012 Infiniti M37x shifts too often for my taste. I think that it's optimized for gas mileage, but I wish that it would just pick a gear and stick with it. I guess what I'm trying to say about the eight-speed transmission is that you should be careful what you wish for. . . .
