It depends on the engine design. Each has it's sweet spot, meaning some engines are more efficient at a higher RPM than others.

For my 2.5L the recommended shift points are 10, 21, 33, and 40 mph for best fuel economy. Unfortunately, I have no idea what the RPMs of the engine is at those speeds since I'm without a tach. I do have a manual though. If you have an automatic, the shift points will probably be different due difference in transmission gearing.

These trucks (I've owned 4) have always seemed to run at higher RPMs. No biggy.

My truck runs about 2250 RPM at 75 MPH and it has that weak ass 3.0
I'm curious to see what it'll run when I get the 4.0 installed.
