EDIT POST: did some testing with my truck while driving home yesterday............. MDS does work while in Tow/Haul mode and it did NOT lock out 8th gear with Tow/Haul engaged. On my 2014, the only way to disable the MDS was to put the truck in manual mode, TowHaul or not.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Use tow/haul or just put it in manual mode. If you want it off permanently, a tuner can turn it off........

Thumbs up

I didnt mind the MDS before today when i had a muffler swap done. When it would kick in i was thinking i would probably eventually go back to the stock muffler b/c of how the exhaust sounded with the 4 cylinders...but disabling it definitely did the trick. I love how it sounds all the time now

You would think this could be update via firmware as an option that can be disabled, at least on the newer trucks with UConnect.

Changing to louder muffler and mds will have the drone sound.
I like my mds, i follow the mileage thrue whole year snd its 70% street and 30% highway and i get 15 mpg.
I tried driving it on street with mds off and i got 12.5 to 12.9 mpg.
