I wonder why the Edge and Explorer can be flat towed but not the Escape :shrug:

No clue. :shrug: Ford’s RV & Towing Guide says they can. Kinda bummed that this generation of Escape/ MKC can’t. :rant:

Odd, since second gen with the 6F35 could, but starting in '13 (Escape) is not "rated" for it. I know it is more than just about the transmission and fluid lubricating things that rotate in neutral, and steering and what is enabled in accessory, but...I always thought it was mainly about the transmission. Some will drain the battery.

The 6F35 Edge is not four wheel towable, the 6F50/55 is (so no on the 2.0EB). Odd.

I have flat towed more than a few automatics leaving them running, but that is a temporary out of necessity thing, I don't see driving across the US with the toad running.

I want to meet the person that flat tows an F550! Ford has more flat towable cars that are not manuals or 4x4 with transfer cases than most.

A 2011 Ranger with manual trans can be flat towed. Maybe the next one will.

According to the 2019 Ford Towing Guide, the 4x4 Ranger will be flat towable. :yahoo:

In other news, the 2019 Edge can no longer be flat towed. :cry: :cry:
