Chrysler’s TorqueFlite eight-speed transmissions are getting famous for their fuel savings and emissions reductions. They feature advanced-technology automatics which are first of their kind ever made available to mainstream-brand customers. In fact, these transmissions are now powering more than one million vehicles, worldwide. Vehicles equipped with TorqueFlite eight-speed transmissions are projected to save their owners more than 700 million gallons of fuel, if one compares them with their predecessors that featured five- or six-speed automatic transmissions. This means that the quantity of gasoline is worth approximately $2.5 billion at the pump.
Furthermore, they also contribute for the reduction of the combined CO2 emissions by more than six million metric tonnes. There have been achieved 19 Chrysler Group fuel-economy or driving-range benchmarks across four vehicle segments.
