What he ^^^^ said and tow buttons also typically lock out overdrive as well.

As the other have said it changes the shift points.  I usually drive about 55-60 in the Tow mode when pulling our trailer.  I notice that the engine runs about 200-250 rpm higher in tow mode at that speed than it does in normal mode.  Also by changing the shift points. it stays in the lower gears a bit longer upon acceleration.
