Tow mode?
 
what does the Tow/Haul mode do? Does it give more low end torque?
If engaged w/o actually towing anything, does it do any good like snappier acceleration?? Maybe the Sport mode already does that??

It alters the gearbox shift algorithms and locks out the upper overdrive.

It's only of use when towing fairly heavy loads.

Some guys feel it offers snappier performance, I'm not convinced though. It just feels thats way due to the altered shift pattern.
