Default Tachometer RPM

Hi,

My wife and I test drove a 2009 C70 with 76k miles on it this afternoon. At 65 - 70 mph on the highway, the tach was about 2,200 rpm and it seemed high to me. I expected it to be about 1,500 - 1,800 rpm as I thought it would be a 6-speed automatic. However, maybe it is a 5-speed so how would I tell, besides counting the gear changes? Is 2,200 rpm at 65 - 70 correct? Thanks for the info.
