Is kickdown gear same as 2nd on C6

When a C6 (or any automatic for that matter) kicks down a gear when you hit the throttle to pass, is it just shifting into 2nd or is there another gear ratio in the trans between 2nd and drive?

the C-6 has 3 speeds forward.

when you hit passing gear depending on the vehicle speed , it drops to 2nd or 1st gear....... if you were in 3rd gear when the gas pedal was pushed down
