I have a 2012 Ford Escape v6 4wd. The owners manual says it can be towed 4 down. I have heard Ford says it can't be towed 4 down, but I haven't received any notification about the change. If anyone knows of a notice please advise.

I bought the escape specifically to tow behind my Motorhome.

Look very closely at your owners manual and think it will say that your Excape needs to be towed on a trailer. You can not even use a dolly. I might be wrong but check very closely!

That depends on the build date of your Escape, I beleive anything built after the end of Feburary 2012 was no longer towable, if it was built before they will honor the warranty if you tow it 4 down. But I would definitely check with Ford on when the cutoff date was for sure

Towed our 2010 4wd v-6 8,000 miles without a problem before the first transmission went out after being towed 300 miles; Drove it 3,500 miles solo no problem, then towed it 300miles when the second transmission went out. full certified used car warranty replacement both times. We then elected to have the lube pump install for approx $1,700 out our pocket. Have now towed 20,000+ miles without further trouble.
