    Okay, where it says "street sport" , this is different than off road, but in both instances it keeps your rpms higher before the transmission shifts. I can't be the only one that has a raptor that shifts higher in this mode, lol.

    Think what it is, if you press offroad mode then press TSC once, you are in a different mode than just pressing TSC once without pressing offroad mode first.

    @CoronaRaptor Unless you have Offroad mode on, the transmission shifting is not affected. The "Street Sport" pertains only to the traction control. Shift points can, however, be affected by aggressiveness of throttle input. For example, the truck shifts as quickly as possible to the highest gear at light to moderate throttle while holding gears or downshifting during WOT. Only the 2015+ F-150's have an explicit sport mode that also affects transmission shifts in addition to traction control aggressiveness.

    In short, I'm not arguing that you're noticing a difference, but the fact is that the sport mode you're referring to is 100% associated with the AdvanceTrac settings which ONLY control how your ABS, Yaw Control, and RSC work. So, the only "shifting" difference you may notice is the PCM not cutting engine power when detecting wheel slip as you're hooning around town or otherwise.

    I hear what you are saying and don't want to argue, but with my year of raptor the engine revs higher before it changes gears in the transmission when in sport mode. For example it will not shift into the next gear and will hold the rpms at 3 to 4000 before shifting, while without being in any mode at all the transmission shifts into overdrive even at 1500rpm. C'mon, nobody????

    The button on the shifter is for tow/haul mode. It does hold shifts long and it will downshift while selected. When you push the button on the shifter a light lights up on the dash i think it says tow mode or something

    In the Ford Owner's Manual, the ONLY settings that affect transmission shifting and response are Offroad Mode and Tow/Haul. If you're getting a different transmission response or shift points, the AdvanceTrac "Sport" mode is NOT what's doing it.

    Is this a decision you could ever regret?
