    Can someone tell me what the "PWR" button is for? Its on the shifter console right above the 2nd start button. I have a feeling its some sort of tow mode thingy but not sure. Thanks.

    I alters the shift pattern for more "power",
    holds a gear longer. (higher RPM)

    I keep mine on all the time and makes for a much better driving experience if you feel your rig is more sheepish than not. My driving is probably 85% city and I get about 12.5 mpg with the PWR on and around 13.5 mpg with it off. This is from driving the exact same route week after week so I'm convinced the 1 mpg is real. I don't mind paying for the extra gas to get a driving experience that's almost sporty......almost. ;)

    If you spend a lot of time on the highway you won't notice; as mentioned, it will hold a lower gear longer and downshift quicker to give better performance. It's also useful when towing or carrying a lot weight.

    :cheers:
