The respondent suggesting the Hybrid was here...
Our dingy is a '06 Hybrid Escape, but can't tell you if it really is no problem to flat tow 'cuz we use a dolly. The car was well over $30,000 when new (Limited Edition w/ all options) and we did not try it...after reading about how other (conventional powered) Escapes that were approved to flat tow were grenading transmissions
The owners manual says the Hybrid is flat towable.
So if you do it, best luck.
