I have read that our Passports start in 2nd gear. I know that if you put in sport mode and use the paddle shifters you can keep it in 1st gear. Is there a auto mode that forces our Passports to always start in 1st?
It probably improves launch acceleration too if you actually floor it off the line. If you're accelerating easy then it can just use second instead for less shifting and better economy.I would think that the extreme low 1st gear “granny gear” is for off road or work duty ?
