The new 07' Silverado/Sierra pics are finally out for the world to see. However, GM has FAILED to include the new automatic 6-speed tranny. They say they do not have enough on inventory to be offered just yet. This transmission has 2 over-drive gears. Which will help reduce engine demand/gas consumption. What tranny is in the 06' STS? Anyone know?

Hi Artsbest,
the 06 V6 and V8 have the five speed automatic.
The 06 STS V got the 6 speed autamatic, also XLR V.

And the 2007 STS V8 will have a version of the 6 speed automatic - and a slight 'bump' in EPA MPG.

The 2007 V8 SRX also gets the 6-speed. But the '07 Avalanche, Tahoe, and Suburban all have the same old 4-speed, I assume with the same old problems (the most annoying unfixable problem for me being the clunk when shifting 2-3 or 3-2).

You're so correct Benc. Why so much hype about GM's new 900 platform vehicles when so much of the "old" is still present? SAME ENGINE SAME TRANSMISSION etc., etc.. They spent $5 BILLION for this?
