Never had an automatic with this many gears. Is there a gear range you select or just put it in drive and go. If you are driving 35mph does the transmission get to 8th gear?

From what I have heard and read up about these 8 speed automatics is they will most always go to the highest gear possible for economy, then when you get on it it will downshift and go, but from what I know they are sometimes a little slow and hesitant to shift, and a little clunky as well. Thats one reason I am sticking with my Hybrid.

It may not get to 'top' gear going 35mph. One or two of the highest are overdrive ratios. I do not have the numbers in front of me, but there is a web site 'transmission digest' that has an article about the transmission. Find 'ford motor company and the hat trick' if you want to read it.
