    Now I fear that I sound like the stupid one but... I have the auto with tow package and I have never seen this button. Where the heck is it if I were to have one?

    yeah theyre pre set shift points

    it allows your truck to rev a little higher prior to shifting to squeeze a little more torque out so you have more pulling power when towing
