9th Gear on 2017 V-6's?
I wondered if owners of V-6, 2017 Cherokees have had any more luck hitting 9th gear than those of us with earlier years. I've found it nearly impossible to see 9th gear on my '15 Limited without doing highly illegal speeds then backing off the throttle. Since my ride has the trailer tow package with a lower axle ratio, you'd think it would hit 9th when cruising at interstate speeds, but no. I see 8th all the time but not 9th. So the purpose of a 9 speed gearbox is??
How about you 2017 owners? I know the 4-bangers see 9th frequently.
