Not sure; I think it depends on the gear ratios. However, it seems that the auto mfgr's are moving toward more gears...it 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.
