It is designed to be most effective whenthe vehicle and trailer combined weight is at least 75% of thevehicle's Gross Combined Weight Rating-(GCWR). Operationof tow/haul in a lightly loaded or non-loaded vehiclewill not cause damage. However, there is no benefit to theselection of tow/haul when the vehicle is unloaded, and use oftow/haul mode during unloaded driving conditions will decrease fueleconomy and may generate shift feel concerns.
