Hey, in the quiet relase of the GS hybrid, did nayone catch on that its a CVT transmission?

It's like they don't want you to know. CVT's have a rep for not being able to handle power. But they are quietly taking a chance with this and don't want anyone to know.

THOUGHTS?

All of Toyota's hybrids use a CVT transmission. The way their hybrid system is designed, the tranmission is an integral part of it, so designing a hybrid with a 6sp Auto or other transmission would require redesigning most of the hybrid system to accommodate it.
