You don't need a button to have overdrive. On manual Rangers 5th gear is overdrive. Usually the highest gear is considered the overdrive gear since it brings the revs down for better mileage while cruising the highway. The button will sometimes do other things as Bob stated but in the ends its just an extra gear.
