Mein Auto: 2006 ford Explorer EB V8
Keeping my 2006 Explorer V8 is looking more attractive the more I read. I wonder if the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 8-speed will have the same problems? My guess is that the transmission is too light to handle the torque, due to the crazy CAFE regulations, so they slow application of the engine torque to prevent excessive warranty work on failed transmissions. There are several versions of the ZF 8-speed.
