Tach speed for a 1996 3.0 Sable

Just purchased a 1996 Sable wagon with the 3.0 engine. Driving 60 MPH the tach reads 2000 RPM on the engine. Is this a little high on the RPM? Not sure the tach is working correctly or if it is shifting into overdrive. Has the correct tire size according to the tag on the door! Help!!! jps

2000 RPM at 60 is perfect. If it wasn't going into overdrive, it would read closer to 2500.
