    2008 is incorrect, I have it in my 07 N* and I believe that is the year it started, this was also the first year of the interior redesign.

    1st year for the 6-speed was '07, but only the V8 got it. The '07 3.6 still had the 5-speed.

    Best regards,

    From what I was able to find the 5 speed (5L40E) was used from 2004-2008 in the 4.6L V8. The 6 speed (6L50E) 2006 and Up.

    Was it available with AWD or just RWD? As a side note, has anyone ever swapped in a 6 speed when their 5 speed burned up? Mine is fine, but something to think about for the future. Thanks for all the replies thus far, very helpful.

    Looks like it was available for in 2wd and 4wd. The electrical system might be different for the 6 speed unit and a swap might be more complicated than just swaping the units.

    Elie is correct. The V6 still got the 5-speed in 2008 as well. Not sure if the 6 speed was ever available with the V6 in the FirstGen SRX, and 2009 was the last year.
