X6 Sport Mode

Does anyone know what the Sport Mode does in the X6? The manual is a bit light on the details.

I think it just changes the gear shift points so it holds each gear longer for a more sporty shift from gear to gear.

Sport mode on the X6 tightens the suspension. It does alter anything else that I know of.

Moving the lever to the left changes shift points and elmiinates 6th gear.
