Can someone explain "adaptive transmission shift strategy" found on the 2011 mustangs with the automatic transmission?

From what I understand this is just the system making incremental pressure changes so shifting remains consistent over the life of the vehicle.

It adapts to your driving habits, adapts psi pressures & shift points. All the new ford autos have it. IE: heavy foot longer shift points light foot quicker shifts, etc. Can be reset by reseting KAM in the processor, need a scan tool for that.

Fortunately flash tuning it will get rid of this feature, I think... but I haven't read up on it enough. With the 2010s and earlier the drive-by wire was responsible for the adaptive learning.

My clutch and left foot are going to make adaptations from day one! :)

Are you sure about that? I'm pretty sure that it is just a self-correcting system meaning shifts on day 1 and year 10 are the same and not an adapt to the driver system like hypermiler vs lead foot. I'm not an expert on it though.

No hes correct, it changes to your driving style. If you change your style from econo to haul ass the computer will shift faster and 0-60 faster. You can also force shift it up if its still not shifting fast enough.
Its all in the owners manul if u actaully own one. Not that i think anyone actually reads it LOL.
