Gas Pedal All The Way Down - Click button

Hello all, really enjoying my '19 Stinger GT Limited! Question: When I floor the gas, it feels as if there is a button or click when compressed all the way. The RPM climbs very high and stays there for a sec and won't shift right away with padal. Has anyone experienced this?

That is known as the kick down switch. It basically tells the transmission to drop down one gear and rev all the way to almost 7k rpm to shift to the next gear.
Paddles will allow you to shift up manually before the 7k rpms.

That makes sense now. Lol

You'll find the kickdown button in most German cars.
