what happens on these when you shift to M?
On our 3.6L V6 Equinox and 2010 Traverse with the 3.6 and similar 6 speed trans.
When you shift to M, (L on the Traverse), it drops the trans gear by 2.
So if youre in 6th, it puts you in 4.
even with the bigger heavier traverse, the gear change and the RPMs going from about 1500 to 3000 (@ 60 MPH), gives a nice little response from the engine for passing power
2013 Equinox LT1 3.6L V6 FWD 88,000
2010 Traverse LT1 3.6L V6 FWD 153,000
2003 Trailblazer LS 4.2L I6 RWD 181,000
