Lately, everywhere we look us see Fiat, both in Europe and in the States, but this is not at all a bad thing because the Italian manufacturer has invested a lot of effort and money in turning the Chrysler cars in world class models.
Following this trend, the Italian driven Chrysler has big plans for installing a new eight speed gear box on the 300 model and also on the new Dodge Charger.
The ZF type transmissions will be somewhat different from the ones used on the European BMW and Audi and they will feature a lever style shifter in the center console, this kind of shifting system being somewhat more convenient than the BMW joystick type found on the BMW cars.
While this seems a bit extreme, an eight speed gear box can be quite beneficial because of its better low end acceleration and better top end fuel economy not to mention the smoother driving.
So as you can see Fiat is doing great things with its American and we presume that in the near future we will see other improvements to the over the Ocean models.
