Hey Guys, which transmission do I have in my 2013 Chrysler 200? I have the 2.4 liter engine with the six-speed auto stick. I was thinking it's a CVT, but am not sure they made a six-speed CVT. Is that right or is it the same six speed auto that they've got in other Mopar vehicles? Anyone know the number of it, like 727, 904 etc?

A CVT would not have any true "gears". CVT = Continous Variable Transmission. You have the 62TE which does have 6 "speeds". As far as I remember, the CVT was not available or used in the 200.

The CVT was only used in the Caliber, Compass and Patriot if memory serves.

Yes it is the 62TE derived from the old 41TE. They added 2 more gear ratios with another planetary gear set and 2 more clutches where the transfer shaft used to be.
The CVT has an infinite number of computer-controlled gear ratios. However it does have a 'L' range for holding the lower "gears" longer.

Thanks for the information, gentlemen. I sure love the way it shifts from first through fourth, but after that, it's kind of mundane.

Yeah, I can only tell it's in 5th or 6th gear by watching the tachometer. The shifts are crisp going from 1-4, but very smooth for 5th and 6th.

I've driven my daughter's Caliber that has the CVT - it takes some getting use to not feeling the "shifts".
