Old news. They have been talking about this transmission for months. It will also make it's way into some of the car platforms. They actually delayed the press release of the new Jeep Cherokee by a few weeks to work out a few more bugs with this new transmission.
Ford and GM have a joint mission on a 10 speed transmission as well.
