Down shift

My truck down shifted to maintain speed when I set my cruise control coming over the Rocky Mountains. It kind of surprised me since I didn't have my tow/haul turned on.

Great feature. GM also followed suit for their programming on the 2013 6L80E so that it would do engine braking without having to be in tow/haul. As ineffective as it is on a gasser it kind of works.
