Can anyone tell me what the max RPM is for the 2.4L engine in a SLE-2 Terrain?

The owners manual (page 4-13) says to keep it out of the shaded warning area but I've yet to see any flavor terrain that had any markings of that type on the tach. But then again the manual says I have a windshield fluid low warning light too so maybe the same guy wrote the tachometer section.

Shift point on the V6 is just under 7k according to data logging software (its always + and - here and there). Max RPMS on the engine is 7200rpms (rated by GM) but the max RPMS on the 6T70 is 7k according to GM's information. The 3.0 is still pulling power past 7k, but with the "lazy" shifts it will hit fuel cut-off before it shifts if you run it that high....Or so I was told :)

The V6 is rated 264hp @ 6950, so its shifting when it finally gets to max power :(

Just to clarify the question...I wasn't really asking about the transmission shift point but rather what the redline is on the engine.

Which begs the next question...does the computer shut off the fuel to prevent the engine from over-revving?

Yup. Its electronically controlled to NOT get to redline. You will never over rev the engine.

This is too funny. today in the AM I noticed there is no Red area in the tach. I was going to post this question.

Thanks!
