I've only had mine for a few weeks, and I have to say that the transmission is 100 times better then the magazines make it out to be. With that much torque I can't imagine what an 8-speed transmission would do. 5-speeds are plenty.
The 8 speed will be out with the next version. Just for how up to date with technology these vehicles are, the 8 speed would have been a nice addition to the 12-13s
I'm pleased with how the 5 handles the power and shifts and all that. But it could be more efficient, and not revving as high on the highways.
The 5 speed programs itself to your driving style, so if you drive slowly normally, it will become lazy and smooth shifting. If you're aggressive, the shifts will start getting sharper and faster.
If you get a toon, the adaptive settings are cancelled and it shifts very quickly
my jeep no longer has the burp from 1-2nd with the tune in it. (Which was always a fun sound)
