2nd prime is utilized as a passing gear....in most cases your trans wont downshift to 2nd for passing....to shift to 2nd it would be letting go of 2 clutches and grabbing 2 new clutches resulting in a rpm flare up...for 2nd prime it only needs to let something go at most speeds....its also available in tow haul mode if load demands or if manually shifted you will go into 2nd prime before 3rd.....in the 2012 models it will also 2nd prime at wot upshifts also....6spd technically.....marketing ploy definitely! they should build a real 6spd where 4th or 5th is 1:1......
