Arth the 8 speed really makes a difference! We also test drove a 2013 Grand Cherokee Overland with a Hemi but didn't have the 8 speed. With the 8 speed at 58 mph with cruise on it was showing 30-32 mpg on a fairly flat road, on the interstate at 75 with cruise 22 mpg. The 13 without the 8 speed at 55 mph showed 21-24 mph (same road) and at 75mph was showing 17-19. This is all on the instant mpg's from the evic. The 8 speed also feels better going through the gears, it's seamless and just feels stronger.

on three runs with a stop watch the 8 speed was 4-6 tenths fast to 60

I have always bragged on my truck being pretty fast for a stock truck, being a reg cab swb and the 3:92 gears I have killed other Rams, ecoboost trucks, 6.2 Chevy's but today I learned that this Jeep is just a tad faster. With the 8 speed in sport mode this thing is fast for weighing 6500 lbs. I have never felt such a big difference from changing the tranny mode in any vehicle.

Now my wife is messing with me because her ride is faster than mine....For now.
