Automatic Transmission

The “DRIVE” range can be selected when towing. However, if frequent shifting occurs while in this range, activate the TOW/HAUL feature. Refer to “Automatic Transmission” in “Starting and Operating” for further information.

NOTE: Using the TOW/HAUL feature while operating the vehicle under heavy operating conditions will improve performance and extend transmission life by reducing excessive shifting and heat build up. This action will also provide better engine braking.

If you REGULARLY tow a trailer for more than 45 minutes of continuous operation, then change the automatic transmission fluid and filter according to the interval specified for “police, taxi, fleet, or frequent trailer towing.” Refer to “Maintenance Schedule” for the proper maintenance intervals.
