Yes, this vehicle can be towed with all 4 wheels on the ground, limited to 70 mph. I will see if I can print it off for you.

thks. i am a pessimist but again this veh is a 2018 focus titatium 2.0 with a dps6 transmission that i want to tow behing my rv. the trans i saw that was towable was a mps6 and that's why i got concerned and the dealer and because it was sat couldn't find out but i guess you did but advise the difference

I will be honest we had one come in on the hook and that transmission was smoked, customer stated he did everything correctly, and Ford paid the bill since it was 4 wheel towable.

Ask Your Own Ford Question

I​ don't think any car should be towed on the ground myself, there is just much room for error, and then its too late with a bunch of damage. Just my opinion.

i have a 04 Honda crv and a crv before that and never an issue. i understand what your saying but just must be carefull. what is that mps6 trans

DPS6 transmission is a manual transmission that is fully automatically shifted, the other 2 transmissions are a 5 speed and a 6 speed and they are fully manual.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
amazing remco says the mps6 is automatic and towable 4 down

Ford calls it an automatic also, but in reality it is a fully automatically shifting manual trans.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
