New Transmissions for 2014?

Just wondering if anyone bought or test drove any of the 2014's yet.. if so does the new transmission make a difference?

It's so weird how opinions on cvt's are so....variable. I despise the CVT for it's lack of smoothness.

I CVT is a lot smoother than an auto. Only downfall is its noisier. But you don't have the clunking in and out and switching gears like you do in a auto.

Guess that depends what autos you have experience with. Not all autos clunk when they shift. In fact none of mine have. And yet, the CVT feels as though its slipping. None of my autos did that either.

As far as auto I was speaking of the auto I had in my liberty kk. I know they all don't clunk but most jeeps I've been in do.

I know of a Pathfinder that clunked. But my 89 Cavalier, 99 Grand Am, and 2001 Volvo never did. Though the Volvo had some intermittant confusion on what gear I wanted.

Come to think of it my Dads old Suburban used to clunk. Maybe it's a truck thing.

I had 4 Saabs, two clunked two didn't.

I like the cvt, but wouldn't mind an overdrive in my fdii... If I was cruising at 55mph all day it would be perfect, and I like it when off roading, but I really just want a light pressure turbo, bump hp to 220. That would improve mpgs quite a bit. 6speed is one out of a Hyundai, iirc. So for comparison maybe drive one of those?
