Nissan or Jatco can make very good transmissions when they want to.

I would still put my bet on the ZF-8HP90, but that said it wouldn't surprise me if Nissan used their own transmission.

"The gas engines will probably be mated to a version of the Jatco JR711E 7-speed automatic currently in use in the global Patrol SUV, sold in the U.S. as the Infiniti QX80. The transmission for the Cummins is unknown. It could either be a beefed-up version of the JR711E or a licensed model from ZF. The ZF 8HP-series longitudinal transmissions have a torque capacity of up to 738 lb-ft, which should more than accommodate the Cummins' substantial torque." - By Edward A. Sanchez
