9th Gear?

I was going 84 MPH on a flat road and I wanted to check what gear I was in. It showed 8th. What does it take to get into 9th?

Throttle has to be just right and you need to be on a slight downhill grade or better.

I've never seen ours use 9th..
Even when you shift it the number goes to 9 but the rpm don't change..

That's because it's not a "manu-matic". It's Electronic Range Selection, it just sets the highest gear you can go to, the shift is still determined by the computer.

It's the "one transmission for all" mindset FCA has...their plan is to put the same transmission in EVERY SINGLE front-wheel-drive based vehicle they build. The 4-bangers see 9th much more often.

It's the numbers game. More must be better. You buy a computer scanner that does 1600dpi .... every photo in every magazine you've ever looked at is at 75dpi. The only reason for 1600dpi? It sells.

No less is more.. all there doing is over complicating things.. to the point they can't even make it shift right nor have any idea how to fix the disaster trans there using .

My old th350 trans work just fine in my 72 blazer and 75 chevy truck.. and there 40yrs old.. 3 spd works like a charm..

I'll take 10 mpg in them and no ac over the cherokee any day.. this thing was nothing but A problem since day 1
