Well, when I look, I won't have to worry about the salesmen lying to me about "your truck will pull that fine".

The 12 speed freedomline is like an autoshift, except no clutch pedal at all.

Could you explain the freedomline a little more? I have driven an autoshifter but it had a clutch so this must be the next evolution of the stickshift minus the stick.

The freedomline is close to an autoshift. The big differences are no clutch pedal and it can and will skip shift automatically. You can also manually select a gear at anytime. The freedomline shifts smoother IMO and the skip shift feature lets you stay with traffic leaving lights better. My truck will often shift 3rd, 6th, 9th, 11th, 12th. It is a breeze to drive and much more refinned then the autoshift.
