6 SPEED AUTOMATI TRANSMITION

2012 Ford Focus • 3,000 miles

This Ford Focus SFE, = Super fuel economy has a 6 speed or 6 forward drive gear transmition, How does this work when the shift lever indicater only has 3 position, (drive) (low 2) and (low 1)? If it has 6 forward drive gears shouldn't it have 6 indicaters on the shift lever? As in (drive) and then low 5, 4, 3, 2, and low 1? What gears are actualy engaged for each drive indicater on the shift lever? I'm thinking (drive) = all 6 gears automatic, then (low 2) = gears 3 and 4 and then (low 1) = gears 1 and 2. How does this actualy work?

You only have 3 choices as the rest is controlled internally and not available for you to choose.

Engineering is the issue here.
