62TE Automatic Transaxle

The 62TE six-speed automatic transaxle was developed by building on the capability of Chrysler Group's four-speed automatic transmission. The six-speed automatic transaxle added two new primary gear ratios and a secondary ratio for optimized passing performance at highway speeds. The six-speed automatic transaxle provides quicker standing-start acceleration than a four- or five-speed transaxle because of a numerically higher first-gear ratio. A more robust differential with increased torque capacity enhances launch performance by requiring less torque management, electronically limiting the torque that is available during the initial stages of standing-start acceleration. Smaller steps between ratios also make for a smoother, quieter ride, as the engine speed doesn't change as often with each shift. In addition, more ratio choices, more appropriate ratios for quicker acceleration and a lower overall top gear ratio provide a quiet ride and improved fuel economy at highway speeds. The gear ratios of the six-speed transmission allow the engine to work more efficiently at lower speeds, providing the foundation for a spirited driving experience.

The 62TE six-speed automatic transmission is manufactured at Chrysler Group LLC's Kokomo Transmission Plant in Kokomo, Ind.
