Default V6 tranny

I've noticed that at full boil the transmission shifts 1k under redline when in drive, I've tried the same thing in I and it seems to be about 500 rmp's or less off the redline mark. the manual dosen't state any of this exept that towing is increased in I and also it increases engine braking. would I be the poor man's sport mode? any thoughts?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

That seems normal. All the autos I've ever driven allowed you to flirt closer with the redline when you shift manually or keep it in a lower gear (as opposed to just sticking it in Drive).

Cheers,
