2014 jeep 8 speed tranny??
 
Hello,

I am new to your forum. I am seriously thinking about buying a 2014 jeep wrangler. I am curious if anyone knows if the '14 will have the 8 speed tranny that was put in the Ram truck this year. Any other additional new things for 2014?
If not...maybe a '13 will fit the bill.
Thanks for any insight(s) you might offer.

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

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

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.

I have been searching the web on and off for the last couple of months trying to find any info on the 2014 wranglers and also bugging my local dealer. Lots of rumors, but nothing confirmed. The best i can come up with is my local dealer says the order banks for the 2014 wranglers are suppose to open the first week of June. At that point we should know more. 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.

I doubt there will be any dramatic changes for 2014.

Just speculation, but chances are that tranny changes won't take place until the new model debuts. I didn't particularly like the 8 speed in the 2014 GC that we drove either, really jerky and constantly shifting.

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
