We have a 2005 Freestyle which we like but it is not designed to be towed "four down" which I assume is a function of the CVT transmission. The '08 model, now the Taurus X, has a six speed and most everything I've seen shows the FWD version as capable of being towed four down. A Ford Neutral Transmission Kit may be required. Spec wise - size, weight, horsepower - it is close to the Saturn Vue XR which would be another choice but the Ford would be our preference because of the additional seating.
Is anyone using the Taurus X as their toad? If so, what has been your experience with it - base plate, braking system, towability, etc.?
