Have about 500 miles on my 2020 F250 6.7L Tremor and I am noticing it down shifts into 3rd really hard. It feels almost like its jerking the truck.
I assume that is not normal and will be taking to the dealer. Has anyone else had that problem? What was the solution to fixing it?

Many people have had this....some had bad trans... Others were fixed with a flash of the software. There is a recall on some transmissions.

The affect transmissions were within a very short window of time. You can run the VIN to see if you're affected. Mine downshifts hard with a load in trailer mode with the engine brake on. Otherwise its smooooooth as butter.

I've never even felt a downshift in my truck, except when I punch it, and those are all normal shifts....my truck was built 1 year ago today...so Happy Birthday Beast

I'll start by saying I'm not a big fan of the 10 speed other than fuel economy. In saying that, your truck being so new, it is still probably learning how to down shift part of the adaptive learning. Should improve some what as you put miles on it.
