Tow Mode

I've found it more pleasant to drive around town in tow mode, as it seems the suspension is less sporty and more comfortable. Especially when I have groceries or when the family is in the car or I'm going over bumpy roads.

Anyone else doing this at all?

Re: Tow Mode

I haven't used it other than to check that it engages in that mode when I select it. I don't have the towing group either.
Is there a maximum speed that you can't go over without causing some damage in the drivetrain?

Re: Tow Mode

I don't know a max speed (the owners manual doesn't mention it), but it doesn't feel as punchy and the ride is much more comfortable in tow mode.

Re: Tow Mode

If I don't get the chance, someone can ask at the upcoming SRT engineers chat if there are speed limits in Snow and Tow modes?

Re: Tow Mode

There is NO speed limits in any of the Select Track modes. The ride in Tow and Sport should be about the same. The Engine and trans cal will be different
