One of the first consequences of the Chrysler-Fiat alliance could be the arrival of Fiat's new six-speed transmission in Chrysler models. Chrysler lost its dual-clutch partner Getrag, which was developing a next-gen dual clutch transmission, so Fiat's unit, still under development, is likely to arrive statewide. At least this is what Frank Klegon, Chrysler LLC's executive vice president of product development, speculated about during the recent Chicago Auto Show. Called G365, Fiat's new transmission comes in three flavors: manual, automated manual and dual-clutch. The manual version will debut in Europe next June, the dual-clutch version at year's end and the automated manual in the first half of 2010.
