All engines utilize a TorqueFlite 8-speed automatic transmission that builds-in a thermal control functionality. Breaking this down further, there is an 845RE eight-speed automatic on the 3.6-liter engine, as opposed to the 3.0-L EcoDiesel (& select 5.7-L HEMI V-8 engines), who gain an 8HP70 eight-speed automatic transmission.
