    Kinda cool actually.

    I just had a Silverado with the 8 speed and I found myself curious what it was up to. You can feel it flipping through but with downshifts and AFM it's easy to lose track of which gear.

    More of a geek out feature for people like us, but I think it's cool nonetheless...

    Wonder if the Mustang will get it as well.

    I would prefer a 2-digit LED display that displayed the gear, instead of the column showing 1-10, but I'm sure some people will like the 1-10 column as shown.

    A well-programmed transmission is a joy to drive. I bought my Limited EcoDiesel sight unseen without even a test drive (something I don't recommend, although it worked out well for me). I was worried how the 8-speed, torque curve, and 3:92 rear end would play together. Turns out, it works out really well. GM's ability to tune the 10-speed for the Camaro suggests that Ford can have success with it as well.

    Kind of cool. It looks similar to the setup in my Ram, where it looks like you can probably configure this section of the cluster to have a different readout if you don't like the 1-10 column, like trans temp, oil temp, MPG, etc.

    Next question: why does an OHC engine have a lower redline than a larger pushrod engine from the competition?

    Because its set up to deliver more torque lower in the rpm range, you know for a truck.

    Like a pushrod, but more complex?

    The crux of the matter: "different" does not necessarily equate to "better."

    Could be an EB.

    My question is, who has a larger pushrod engine with a higher redline?

    Is the 10-speed mated to anything else but the 3.5 EB? I don't think it is.

    power is located on the low end, especially on a truck.

    I'd get in an accident, squinting at the dash, to see what gear i'm in. The epitome of "Distracted Driving".
    85 cars since 1975....
    Good night and good luck.

    C/D has the 6.2L engine's redline at 6,000rpm and the 5.7 Hemi at 5,800rpm. The first red hash mark on that tach is at 5,750.

    As I said: different. Not necessarily better.
