How does TOW/HAUL Mode work?
Trailering isn’t an easy task for any vehicle to do. Even big trucks that are designed with the ability in mind don’t have it easy. Hauling hundreds or even thousands of pounds is difficult, and you need to make sure your truck is capable of doing it safely. That’s where features like TOW/HAUL Mode come into play, and that’s exactly what we’re going to focus on in this week’s How’s This Work.

What is TOW/HAUL Mode?
TOW/HAUL Mode is an electrical system that, with the push of a button, will change different settings in your vehicle to maximize your capabilities. For instance, it will change your transmission’s shift patterns, boost the torque and perhaps even engage engine braking for maximum control.
Whenever you’re going to trailer something, it’s important to make sure you’ve got the right equipment. Check your trailer hitch, make sure everything is hooked up correctly and ready to go. But when you’re trailing heavier items specifically, like a boat that weighs thousands of pounds for example, you want to make sure your TOW/HAUL Mode is kicked in and ready to work for you.
