Really? My dad just bought the 2014 GC and I really like the new transmission. It shifts a lot, mainly because it has 8 gears, but it does it smooth so you can't really feel it unless you are racing it

If not...maybe a '13 will fit the bill.
Thanks for any insight(s) you might offer.

TrueBlueJK I doubt there will be any dramatic changes for 2014.

Wish we would get some sort of announcement from Chrysler before the order banks open.
It is like that every year, sorry but you will just have to wait it out.

Cyprus Mike Probably the 8 speed will come in EU Diesel Jeeps due to new emmisions standard coming out, being the EURO 6 in september 2014 for production and sold vehicles from 2015 onwards Not for the 2014 though.

Don't see the 2014 having 8 speed.

Wranglin4Life I am pretty sure they are sticking with the 5 speed auto. The 8 speed went in the Grand Cherokee.

4DoorCrush In don't think they get a 8 speed just got a 5 speed in 2012.
