Not sure; I think it depends on the gear ratios. However, it seems that the auto mfgr's are moving toward more used to be 4, then 5, and now the std. auto has 6 gears with 7 and 8 now on some lux. cars. My wife's MB GL450 has a 7-speed auto tranny as well; 7th gear overdrive is only engages above 65mph on the highway.
