Dinghy towable?

We want to buy a new small Ford vehicle to tow behind our MH. Can anyone tell me if any of the small Fords can be Dinghy towed without a lot of work to the Ford?
Thanks
ps, want to thank everyone for the Love Bug remedies. Going to order some Rejex right away.

The only one I am sure can't be towed is the Escape since 2013. We towed a 2011 Taurus SHO for a few years and wanted to replace it with an Escape but found it can no longer be towed.
I think the best way would be to pick the vehicle that suits you and then ask to look at the owners manual under towing instruction to confirm.
Some sales people will tell you the truth but again, a lot of them are just salesmen if you know what I mean. Another sure method is to ask the Service Department to confirm before you buy.
Hope this helps,,,

Pull up the Motor Home Dinghy Towing Guide. Published every year, and lists current vehicles that can be towed 4 down, and what, if anything, has to be done to them.
You can also pull up previous years, again just google up the specific year.
Best to pick a year and make as the vehicles toable change from year to year from the makers.

I second this, the Dinghy Guide works........

We were looking to buy a new model Jeep. Sales person said it could be towed 4 down. I told him it wasn't listed in the towing guide. His sales manager backed him up that it could be towed. I asked the service manager and he didn't know. He checked on the internet and responded he didn't think so. Sales still says it can be towed 4 down, I asked to open the owners package & reading it. Bottom line it could not be towed. No one in sales acted shocked, they just wanted another sale.
