My 2020 MDX SH-AWD has 498 miles. The paddle shift technology was one of the features that drove my decision to buy the MDX. I have driven a Grand Cherokee with this feature for years so I'm familiar with the operation and use it often. In the MDX upshifting is normal, but downshifting is puzzling to me. I use the downshift paddle to allow the trans to slow the vehicle in a downhill situation instead of riding the brakes. Each downshift selection responds with an RPM increase. My reason for posting is to learn from other owners if this 'reving' is normal operation for this feature? Logically, it makes no sense since the purpose of downshifting in a downhill situation is to slow, not increase, the vehicle speed. So instead of saving my brakes I need to brake harder to offset the RPM increase! I've tested this shifting in all Dynamic modes (Comfort, Normal, Sport) and the operation (reving) is the same. Has anyone else observed this?
