They should just call the 8 speed a CVT, because that is what it is.

The ZF 8 speed isn't a CVT and it will be a great transmission....

If it is good enough for Bentley, BMW, Jaguar and Maserati...all use ZF 8 speeds.....with more HP and close to the weight of a Ram.....I think an R/T truck with one would be great!

I would kill for a 8 speed with 3.21 gears.....

Acceleration of the 545 with 4.56 gears and the fuel economy of a truck with 3.21s

Yeah I'm not digging the odd shaped fogs but at some angles they look better.

I would guess tinting the lenses might help but at least these dont have that ugly azz rambox like the silver one....really kills the sport look.
