I think they already have a 6 spd behind the cummins, dont they?smbisig said:correct me if im wrong, but i believe daimler chrysler will also produce two other 6 speed manuals. one in the rams behind the hemi, and the other behind the new cummins 600. the tranny behind the hemi should be somewhat stout, and the one behind the cummins should be very stout (but big and heavy).
if you happen to come across a 2.7 diesel mated to a 6 speed out of an 05' liberty, let me know :flipoff2:
Jeep Liberty and Wrangler will feature the NSG 370 6-speed, replacing the two 5-speed manuals previously used--NV1500 and NV3550--reducing cost and complexity. The Jeep 370 is similar to the one used in the Chrysler Crossfire, the first 6-speed for the Chrysler brand. The NSG 370 has a 4.46:1 First gear, versus the 3.85:1 and 4.04:1 ratios of the previous 5-speeds, for improved launch and traction. For smooth operation, First and Second gears have triple-cone synchronization, Third and Fourth double-cone and Fifth and Sixth single-cone. The hard-finish gears run quiet says Chrysler, and the multirail steel shift system is strong and precise. The 2-piece aluminum case with integrated clutch housing assures powertrain stiffness and light weight. The overall 6-speed gear-ratio spread is intended to bring better fuel economy as well.
Never understood that either. If you're going to give me another gear, give me either a higher OD gear or a lower first gear. I don't see a whole lot of advantage in a ~4 first gear and a .7 OD gear and an extra gear in between. Give me either a lower 1st gear or a taller OD gear and then I'll be interested.SanDiegoCJ said:The 6sp is a nice idea, but I will just NEVER understand the ,IMO, stupidity
of designing a new 4X4 transmission and making 1st gear only 4.46:1. :shaking:
