2008 3.0l Ranger Automatic Tranny Issue?

I have a 2008 automatic ford ranger, with a 3.0l engine and with about 45,000 kms on it and it seems to have a rough shift from first to seconde gear? I wonder is this normal? I hit about 20 kms and it shift from first to seconde, but the shift is abrupt, and kinda almost softly shakes the whole vechicle. I told my mechanic and he said that with low kms like mine has a tranny issue is very unlikely? any help would be appreciated!

Cheese man, what kind of ranger do you have and what exactly is a tranny program update and how much does it cost?
