What Cars Can be Flat-Towed?

What are the steps needed to put an automatic front wheel drive Ford Escape into neutral for flat towing?


Grace, That's a very good question, and there's no way I'm qualified to answer it. You need to talk to the dealer if the manual doesn't answer the question for you.

Here's a site with some information: http://www.edmunds.com/car-buying/what-cars-can-be-flat-towed-behind-an-rv.html

In their article I read that the Ford Escape was redesigned in 2013 and is no longer certified for flat towing.

CAUTION: Apparently you can't always rely on the dealer's advice. A site that pertains specifically with an RVer's experiences with a Ford Escape is: http://maliasmiles.com/RVTravel/ford-escape.htm

Hope that helps. Good luck!
