The 8 speed in the Ram just came out this year. It's based upon the ZF design out of Germany. The 8HP45 is used with the 3.6 and the 8HP70 is used with the Hemi. They (ZF) has been selling them to BMW,Range Rover,Jaguar, and Bently for 2 years.

Chrysler is going to be making all the variants in Kokomo by the end of the year.
The just released 2014 Durango has the 8 speed standard. My guess is by 2014 they'll be retiring the 6 speed.

The future will be a 9 speed.

p.s. When I first saw this, my initial thought was "sweet sister mary they got stick shifts in the 1500's again" but then reality sets in and 8 speed is kinda alot for a stick truck
