Apples to apples not 2011 2.73 rear 6 speed, to 2010 3.73 5 speed. The new 6 speed use top gears to save gas. The 3.7 pulls strong starting around 4000 RPM, that's third gear in 2011. If you down shift to 4th in 2011 that will give you 3000
RPM. The red line for the 2011 3.7 is 6850, not the same 2010. No doubt you do well with 2010 with 5 speed and 3.73 down shifting to 4th.
