This auto transmission deal looks like it was taken out of a truck and just slapped in the car just so it could be sold with an auto trans. My opinion Chevy screwed up this option
and needs to reprogram the computer to down shift too 1st in setting 5.

You know there are NO SHIFT BUTTONS on the ZL1 - it has Shift Paddles. And, the transmission (A6) has been tricked out to stay in the torque RPM range automatically when slowing down so there is no delay. I LIKE IT!
