I'm thinking he's asking about driving a six speed auto.

The Duramax Chevy diesel has a six speed Allison, and they are awesome.

I believe that Honda is going to introduce one in the near future. The salesman said that there is supposed to be less electronics, and better shifting on it. Hope so.

Dont the new explorers and mountaineers have a 6 speed auto?

The V8 drivetrain explorers/mountaineers/aviators all have 6 speed auto transmissions

The new Hummer H2, Escalade and Yukon Denali's with the 6.2L motor are all mated to 6 speed autos.

Mercedes and I believe BMW both offer them in various models.

driving 8 speed on the ls460l and 6 speed on the gs350. it's already big difference between the 2, the ls460l is so much smoother. had sc430 and gs400 before (5 speed), and the gs350 is also a notch above them. if done right, it can smooth out the shifting and also lower the rpm for better gas mileage
