"I was politely corrected for recently saying the FCA tranny plant was in Indianapolis... I'm a Canuck, and I Googled the plant and it said 100 miles from Indianapolis, so... well... 100 miles for me is a short distance so I said Indianapolis. I love the 500, been watchihg it on TV since I was a kid lol." Mark------Closer this time--but Kokomo is only about 55 miles or so from Indianapolis--I was born and raised in the Kokomo,Indiana area so I used to make that run when I was a young man living there--now an old man living in SC. So it is really short for you--I think the 9 speeds are actually made in Tipton, Indiana which is still about 7 or 8 miles closer to Indy.
NOW TO THE POINT OF THIS THREAD--My 2017 TH with the tow package goes into 8th gear between 52 and 57 mph on a flat service. You would think I would see 9th, but haven't yet at speeds up to about 80 mph
The Latitude without the tow package does about the same thing---but will double check since the final ratio is different as I don't have the tow package on the Latitude--maybe it doesn't go into 8th at that low speed.
