The 4T65-E was introduced in 1997 in several vehicles equipped with the supercharged 3.8-liter engine, and some non-supercharged 3.4- and 3.8-liter engines. It was considered to be the big brother to the 4T60-E transaxle.

The transmission sends the power produced as torque (turning force) by the engine and transmits it in a usable form to the driving wheels.
