SI-EVT Transmission Question

All Par Nation...I was hoping you could help me answer a question I had.

Is the SI-EVT Transmission that is produced at Tipton Transmsision plant in Indiana and used on the Pacifica PHEV (Windsor Assembly) the same transmission that is being used in the Grand Commander PHEV (China only vehicle). If yes, does Tipton produce this transmission and send it to China for Grand Commander assembly plant?

Both the Pacifica and Gran Commander are FWD SI-EVT's, but the Pacifica PHEV uses a 3.6L V6, while the Grand Commander uses the 2.0L I4.

Also...Pacifica PHEV is FWD only, while the Grand Commander is available in FWD or AWD, which leads me to believe that these are two different transmissions. Curious why Stellantis would have two similar low-volume applications for FWD PHEV platforms.

In short, pretty much all Jeep nine-speed are supplied from Indiana, even those made in Brazil, China, India, and Italy. Something to think about when talking about how FCA “short changes” North America!
