A Transmission cooler is being added to the 2013's? Is this correct? My next question. is the transmission in the 2013's the same as the one in our 2012's? If so The cooler would be a "no brainer".

No one knows if there will be a transmission cooler added to the 2013, that was just kam327 speculating that it would be a tell tale sign if they had changed the clutches or if they were to add an auxillary cooler to the transmission fluid, although if its the clutches that are over heating and they are dry friction disks I'm not sure how you would add a liquid cooler without destroying the clutches or going to a wet clutch design. The whole reason for going with the dry clutch design is greater efficiency.
