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.
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.

Like a pushrod, but more complex?
The crux of the matter: "different" does not necessarily equate to "better."
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.
