Dodge Dart 9-speed transmission delayed

The Dodge Dart will be re-engineered in mid-2016, and that is when the vehicle will get a new nine-speed automatic transmission.

I wonder what this means for the Chrysler 100. Will it get the nine-speed transmission, or will the nine-speed transmission also be delayed?

Just wondering if any can making any inferences from this.

good move on their part, any way to make it more affordable is a win in my books.

Is a nine-speed transmission less expensive than other transmissions? I would assume its more expensive than a transmission with less gears.

why you assume it's more expensive than a transmission with less gears?

I would just think that more gears means more complexity and more materials than less gears.

Interesting.
I guess that could be the case for some or a good portion of them, i'm thinking it might vary.

If this is something they plan to use on a mass scale in most of their compacts then in that case it will greatly cut costs on their end.

the Chrsyler 200 already has the ZF 9 speed and it shares a platform with the Dart. Its more likely the 100 gets it first...

So the 100 will get it even before the Dart. Interesting. That could be a draw towards the 100. People usually like things that are new and more exclusive as long as they work properly.
