It is only for a 4x4 with the selectable transfer case (dash switchs). AWD cannot be shifted into neutral because it uses a viscous clutch for front driveshaft connection and not the electric coil and shift motor.
The FWD Explorer is the 2011 and newer models and they can be flat towed as long as they are the version with the 3.5L V6 with the 6F50/55 transmission.
