Chrysler has sold over one million vehicles equipped with the TorqueFlite eight speed automatic transmission, helping their customers save 700+ million gallons of gasoline and an estimated $2.5 billion in fuel costs over the lifetimes of their vehicles. The transmissions will also help reduce CO2 emissions by over six million tons.
The eight speed TorqueFlite 8HP45/845RE made its debut in model-year 2012, mated exclusively to the 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 found in the Charger and Chrysler 300. The heavier duty eight speed TorqueFlite 8HP70 transmission can be found behind HEMI powered Durangos, Ram 1500s, and Jeep Grand Cherokees. The 8HP70 is also used behind the EcoDiesel in the RAM 1500 and Grand Cherokee.
Starting in 2015 the TorqueFlite 8HP70 transmission can also be found in HEMI equipped Dodge Chargers, Challengers and Challenger SRTs. The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat with its supercharged 707 HP engine gets the strongest member of the TorqueFlite transmission family. The 8HP90 high-performance automatic affords greater torque capacity than any eight-speed previously offered by Chrysler Group.
