Do we know if the JL will have the ubiquitous (and excellent) ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, currently fitted to the Grand Cherokee, Charger, and several other FCA products?

ZF’s 8-Speed Automatic Transmission - Tech Dept. - Car and Driver

What is interesting is this transmission was specifically designed for use with start-stop systems. This could be the first Wrangler with a start-stop feature to save fuel.

I read Jeep has been having a lot of problems with the transmission in the Cherokee. I hope they've learned something from that debacle!
Have you by any chanced looked into what exactly about the transmission could be causing the problems its having?

A next gen model is something they don't want to mess up (or at least I hope they don't) so, having it addressed is key, but then there's the need for good enough and meeting a deadline.
