Why would my transmission shifting change?

(2000 Toyota 4Runner)
in Brunswick, GA on December 07, 2013
When the vehicle is "cold" the gear that normally comes at 25 mph engages at around 30@2000rpm then lurches as it engages. This does not happen when the vehicle has been running, just the first time I get over 30mph in the morning or at cold start.

Have you serviced the transmission lately? Could have been time several miles ago.

Some manufacturers do use a later shift strategy when the engine is cold to assist the engine warming up faster. Is this something that is notably different than in the past?
