How do I use TOW/HAUL mode?

TOW/HAUL mode is a feature that allows your car to adjust for carrying a large load. When in TOW/HAUL mode, your transmission will shift less, so as to provide more power, and not risk overheating. To enter TOW/HAUL mode, press the TOW/HAUL button, which is located above the climate controls. The light will illuminate to confirm that the truck is in TOW/HAUL mode. To turn off TOW/HAUL mode, press the TOW/HAUL button a second time.
