Is it really a 6 speed tranny
Well the build sheet says my GC has a 6 speed in it but ill be dammed if I can feel six shifts. Example: cruise control set at 55mph tranny in overdrive now I manually down shift once and can not feel a shift or any movement on the tach. Anyone else with a six speed tranny should try and see if they get all six shifts. Or at least down shift from overdrive to six and see if you feel it.

It has 6 usable forward gears but its the same as the 5 speed before it when in drive. They just renamed 2nd prime to 3rd. Upshifting it goes 1-2-4-5-6 and when downshifting it uses 3rd instead of 2nd. Those gears are pretty close in ratio so using them in succession wouldn't buy much. All 6 are available with the range selector though.

Re: Is it really a 6 speed tranny
Even if it used 6 forward speeds you would only feel 5 shifts, unless you include shifting from neutral to drive.
