I have not looked at any yet. Probably aXXXXX It will be towed with a tow bar

system. I now am towing a dodge durangoXXXXXthat runs normally in two wheel drive. It has a switch that switches from two wheel drive toXXXXX The trans is automatic. In that switch is a button when engaged will put both transfer toXXXXXand the auto trans into nutural for towing. I like that system. I do not want to use a dolly or trailer. Thankyou.

Ok, you can flat tow 2WD, but to go with a 4WD, you will need an Explorer, that is the only unit Ford has right now that will flat tow a 4WD, it must be equipped with a "neutral tow kit" tho.
