Jeep patriot transmission swap??

Hallo all,
Previously posted asking whether the patriot or the compass would fit me best and came to the conclusion that i wanted the cherokee but will settle for the patriot as the only one i can get insured on just came out a couple years ago and wont be cheap enough for me.

So I essentially hate the CVT. and would like to know just how possible it would be for me to swap in the new 6 speed they use in the 2014 model into an old 2008 or 09?

Would it bolt right in or would i need to modify it in some way?
Also I'm looking to get either the 2.0 or 2.2 diesel so would the torque characteristic of these engines be an issue if i did swap??

Cheers for any help

No aftermarket support for the adapters, the new transmissions would need a complete wiring harness and computer because they are heavily electronic.

IF you could successfully find and mate everything you would need, the cost would far exceed buying a Cherokee and I'm betting it wouldn't pass MOT.
