There have been rumors floating around for a while that we might see a 7 or 8 speed tranny in the new Diesel.. That should really help increase the overall mpg. Thoughts?
There's 9 speeds coming out in other manufacturers.
The one complaint on the 8 speed now is that when you let off the gas it down shifts kinda quickly enough that you can feel it. However, the transmission somehow learns your driving style & after it breaks in it will be smoother. That's what I have been told anyways.
