Default 5-45RFE Gear Numbering

Why does Chrysler call it a 5-Speed Automatic yet number the gears:
3.00 - 1
1.67 - 2
1.50 - 3
1.00 - 4
0.75 - 5
0.67 - D (6?)

I know you only usually only go through 5-gears when accelerating but calling it a 5-Speed and numbering it differently on the readout is confusing.

PS Does anyone else have to exceed 55 mph to get the truck to upshift into high (0.67)? It will hold it once I slow back down to 55 mph but it wont upshift until roughly a registered 57 mph (4.7L 3.55 265/70R17).
