Fiat Dual-clutch Transmission in Wrangler's future?

Fiat TCT Dual-Clutch Gearbox Coming to U.S. First

"By 2013 this TCT gearbox will be offered with all inline-4 and V6 engines from Fiat and Chrysler in North America," said a Fiat source. The aim is to have C-plus and D-segment cars like the Chrysler 200, V6-equipped Jeep models, and future Alfa Romeo Giulia lead the way with the TCT gearbox

Wait, they're going to KEEP improving the Wrangler in the years after they put the Pentastar in?! That's going to mess up a lot of people's plans.

I posted this as mostly a tease. This trans will only work on "Jeeps" with transversely mounted engines...

I do, however, wonder how a DCT would work off-road....

So you're saying the pentastar will be transversely mounted?
