It's just so bizarre to roll out of the garage in the morning in Drive mode (non-sport), turn right down the hill and have the rig stay in first gear with the RPMs at about 2,500 before it shifts into second. And that's with giving it no gas. If I press on the gas, the RPMs continue to rise briefly and it then shifts into second gear.

I think you will find the gearbox improving once you start driving it normally with more throttle. Let us know how it goes over the next 1000 miles.
