RPMs at cruising speed?
Another newbie here... so just got a pre-owned '05 v8 automatic. Was a little surprised that it's running at about 2500 rpms at 65-70 mph (in 6th gear). Other auto cars I have run at around 2,000 rpms or so when cruising at highway speeds in top gear (note - they are 6 cylinders) . Is the 2500+ normal for the treg v8 6 speed? Or might I have a problem? Everything seems to be in order as it shifts up thru all 6 gears to get to that point.
Just wondering and curious. Thanks for any thoughts or comments!
