2013 AWD Ford Escape as a Towed

Does anyone know if a 2013 Ford Escape AWD w/ a 6 speed auto transmission can be towed 4 down if you modify the transmission with a Aux fluid pump? The manual says no in its current stock configuration, leaving the only option 4 up.

Thanks

REMCO's product guide will tell you a 2013 Escape in any drive/engine/trim configuration needs to be trailered.

According to the Remco product guide this vehicle "must be towed using a trailer".
Looks like my buddy bought the wrong vehicle. He should have asked me to check with you guys first.
Just one more thing for me to give him the gears over. Lol.
