It's the transmission that Chrysler
-loyal buyers have been waiting for. Chrysler has been talking about their upcoming eight-speed automatic transmission for a while now, and now word is that vehicles equipped with the new ZF transmission will be in showrooms by the first of October. The first cars to get the eight-speeds will be the 2012 Chrysler 300C and Dodge Charger
. They will replace the often-criticized five-speed slushboxes currently found in both models.
