2012 Chrysler 300C SRT8 Start Up, Exterior/ Interior Review
In this review, we take a very in-depth look at the all new 2012 Chrysler
300C SRT8. The vehicle was provided courtesy of yet another one of our good
friends, Q Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Irving, TX for us to review. This review
is designed to provide accurate information to both car enthusiasts and
potential consumers alike.
ItaliaspeedTV - ZF 8HP70 8-Speed Automatic Transmission (Chrysler 300/Lancia Thema)
ZF 8HP70 8-speed automatic transmission
ZF engineers had set the bar high to produce a new benchmark for automatic
car transmissions. The second generation of the ZF 6HP 6-speed transmission
entered production only in 2006 included reaction times faster than human perception, direct engine
linkage by early-stage torque converter lock-up and intelligent, adaptive
control software, that almost reads the driver's intentions from his foot.
But the new transmission is capable of even more - it saves (even more)
fuel. It also guarantees ultimate driving enjoyment, as well as the
variability needed to be able to use future technologies.
Several innovations have been introduced in the new 8HP to reduce fuel
consumption: the completely new transmission concept with four gear sets
and only two shift elements open, a higher overall gear ratio, a variable
oil pump, new torque converter, and optimized hydraulic and transmission
control. A stop-start function is offered as an optional function. Idling
at a standstill, the engine automatically switches off. When engaged again,
the engine automatically starts up. Even at standstill times of just 10
seconds, switching off the engine cuts average consumption noticeably --
and also CO2 emissions. The start/stop function is enabled by the
development of the hydraulic impulse oil storage (HIS). It supplies the
hydraulic oil that the transmission's shift elements need for starting.
When the engine is switched off, it allows for a quick start -- as it is
required with the start/stop function. Already 350 milliseconds after
starting the engine, the vehicle is ready for setting off. With the
start/stop function of the hydraulic impulse oil storage, it is possible to
reduce fuel consumption by another 5%. Compared with the worldwide most
efficient 6-speed automatic transmission by ZF, the newly developed 8-speed
automatic transmission saves another 11%.
Benefits of HIS
The hydraulic impulse oil storage makes more complex solutions obsolete,
such as a more powerful oil pump in the transmission or an electric
hydraulic pump. As a larger dimensioned transmission oil pump would
considerably neutralize the fuel savings in continuous operation, an
electric pump is an additional burden on the main power supply, has
disadvantages in terms of noise, and leads to a considerably higher
integration effort. In contrast, with the hydraulic impulse oil storage, ZF
engineers have already considered the lowest possible system costs and easy
installation of the unit. Other expensive adaptations of the transmission
are not required; after all, with the new development of the transmission,
ZF engineers have already considered the integration of the hydraulic
impulse oil storage by ensuring a favorable design of the components and
the respective routing.
Farewell to conventional gear set concepts
The ZF engineers went on the lookout for a completely new transmission
system and discarded all previous established gear set concepts. Armed with
a comprehensive list of criteria, the development engineers systematically
appraised thousands of possible epicyclic gearing systems and their
arrangement variants. The outcome was an 8-speed automatic transmission
system leaving just four simple gear sets and five shift elements.
Lower drag losses and higher gear meshing efficiency
The clever thing, though is the shift plan. There are only 5 shift elements
- multi-disc clutches and brakes in the heart of the transmission - and
only 2 are open in each gear. The fewer open shift elements there are, the
fewer transmission parts there are rotating relative to one another. On the
bottom line, this results in a significant reduction of drag losses in the
transmission. The development engineers were also able to increase the gear
meshing efficiency with the new transmission concept. Energy is lost in
some gears when power is transmitted through gear wheels. In the new
automatic transmission, these losses are below 2% throughout - a further
factor helping to reduce consumption.

2014 Chrysler 300C John Varvatos Edition - Presentation - 2013 New York Auto Show
Welcome to AutoMotoTube!!! On my channel you will find short, (2-5min)
walkaround videos of Cars and Motorcycles. Most of my coverage is from Auto
and Moto shows in North America and Europe, and I visit different shows:
Big, like New York International Auto Show, Detroit North American
International Auto Show or Paris Mondial de L'Automobile, to small
regional, Classic Car, RV and Boat Shows.
I have thousands of High Definition videos of different types of vehicles,
everything from new, classic, vintage, old cars, hot rods, motorbikes,
recreational vehicles, motor boats, yachts, to airplanes, bicycles, and
even tractors :-)
In most of my videos, I take a look at the exterior design and interior
arrangements of the vehicle, so you can receive a general idea and
appreciation of a certain brand or model.
I really appreciate all your comments and critics - they help a lot, in
building one of the most diversified Auto & Vehicles Channel on YouTube!!!
P.S: To find a video of a certain model in my channel, just write the brand
and model name in the search bar above, or have a look in my playlists.
You can find me on my official facebook and twitter pages:

2012 Chrysler 300 first drive from Consumer Reports
Consumer Reports is in the midst of testing the extensively updated
Chrysler 300. It's powerful and more luxurious than before. For more

UPDATE: We've finished testing the Chrysler 300. Check out our full review:
► 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
Designed and built using the proven SRT formula that raises the performance
to astonishing levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60
mph in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16 second range, can cover the
quarter mile in the mid-13 second range, has a top speed of 160 mph, and
brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet.
Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is Chrysler Group's all-new
6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 465
(630 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque -- an improvement of 50 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers
maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and
improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency --
a 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of 450 miles
on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto
Stick on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission,
allowing a choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both
methods give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission
controller calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine.
Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.
Chrysler Group's SRT vehicles are well known for their world-class braking.
Stopping power for the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes courtesy of new SRT
high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system
Stopping distance performance of 116 feet from 60-0 mph is made possible by
new red-painted, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, and
vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15-inches (front) and
