• The transmission will upshift sooner and downshift later.

• The transmission will skip select gears during shifts to allow the engine to operate at lower speeds.

• The torque converter clutch will engage at lower engine speeds and remain on longer.

• The engine idle speed will be lower.

• The overall driving performance will be more conservative.

• Some ECON mode functions may be temporarily inhibited based on temperature and other factors.
