Very true. But I also thought the same about the fact that the 54RFE is just a 4speed w/ a flash which is what the new 6speed is more or less. Yet despite my lack of optimsim my 02 4.7 4sp Dakota got worse mileage then my 05 4.7 "5sp" RAM and I credit it to the different trans. Although not the truest of 5speeds it was and improvement which is how I see the new 6sp to be but we wont know til its arrives.
