Modern car manufacturers are always looking for ways to improve the efficiency of production cars. As gas costs increase, drivers want to know they are getting as much from every gallon as possible. Here at Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor, we’re excited by the announcement from the Chrysler Group that there will be three new models in 2013, all of which will have a new 9-speed transmission.

Buyers here in Michigan will see up to 200,000 cars on sale this year featuring the new performance-beating transmission. The new Jeep Liberty will be the first to go on sale with this new feature, followed by the 200 midsize sedan and the new Dodge Dart. That’s great news for buyers.

The new Jeep Cherokee will debut at the 2013 New York Auto Show, with production sales to follow. The Liberty will switch to a new front-drive platform, like the Fiat 500L. In the Dodge Dart, the new 9-speed transmission will be an option, along with other manual and automatic transmissions.

You can get different things from different car transmissions. With the 9-speed’s shorter, easier shift changes, the whole system uses less fuel, which means that drivers can see a real difference in the car’s fuel consumption. While a 9-speed transmission might seem too much for the average driver, real car lovers or people who want to cover a lot of miles will find this makes a real difference.

You can see these cars on sale later in 2013. If you are psyched about the idea of a 9-speed transmission, come see us at Suburban Chrysler Jeep of Ann Arbor so that we can get you in line for a test drive.
