I have been driving sport mode all the time and seems like in the lower speeds (<=45mph) the BS is restricted to run up to 4th or 5th gear...It’s always 45mph @3000rpm @4th or 5th gear.
Anyone else notice this? Does anyone know what the shifting points are for the BS goat modes? Thanks

I have scoured the workshop manual for any mention of the GOAT mode selector and have come up with nothing. The only thing mentioned is the sport button in the center of the gear selector knob. It gives no indication of a set gear shift schedule with sport mode, only the PCM/TCM will determine the optimal gears for the best performance. So I imagine that the goat modes are just a bunch of parameters added by the engineers to the PCM/TCM to change certain functions (accelerator responsiveness, traction control, etc) according to the mode selected. Long story short, we’ll probably never know what you are wanting to know haha

Thanks for checking :) youre right, i think depending on how heavy you press the accelerator eveything varies and we’ll never know the shift points. I tried testing the 0-60 in 8.5sec i saw from another thread and i think i c ame close to that (video). Note that i didnt floor it ( dont want bronco to cry just yet hehe)

lol ours just turned 1000 miles and I have putted around in it during the break in period (im sure my wife hasn’t though). I’m gonna put it in sport and shower down on it and see what the little 3 banger is made of!
