In tow/haul mode or not? Ford's transmission programming drives me nuts, actually. The "new normal" is to lug the motor in the tallest gear possible at anything less than 80% throttle so it's in effect only using 1000-1200 rpm, but this is hell on the torque converter and motor. I'll throw it into towing mode if I'm around town and less than 60 mph to avoid this, but it also downshifts aggressively, which I don't enjoy because the rev-matching will only be correct 50% of the time. I get they're doing it to push fuel efficiency, but saving 1 mpg over 100,000 miles is only covering 1/4 of my transmission rebuild. The other option I found is if you press the down arrow (not in full manual mode, just auto mode so you're capping the selectable gears) so it will only pick 1-5, you'll be above 1500 rpm around town at all times.
