Yes, but even that feature didn't exist on my last truck.

I use tow/haul all the time. There is no significant difference in millage difference between the two. Set it and leave it.

One added bit on the E-450 with a 2010 & newer (maybe 2009) Torqueshift. I've been told using tow/haul makes the tranny start off in 1st gear, normal mode you are starting off in 2nd. If you count the shifts while accelerating you will feel a extra one in tow/haul mode.

I find the tow/haul on my 2015 Tahoe work much better than it did on my 2004 Tahoe. I tow my Surveyor 264 in 5th most of the trip I am currently on. While a fairly flat trip except for the hills in southern Missouri I was able to run with the cruse control on. I could nto do this with the 2004 Tahoe and same trailer.
