Ford 10 speed Auto - 4 down?

Can vehicles with Ford's 10 speed auto be towed 4 down? Thinking about a Raptor.

Download an owner's manual for the particular vehicle. It should contain the information.

" be towed"

That link that is supplied is for those vehicles to TOW something, NOT BE TOWED. What the OP needs to do is, find the owners manual for the intended vehicle that he'd like to tow, on line, and read up on it there. The owners manual for such a new vehicle may, or may not be available on line yet.

I'd also hardly recommend going to a Ford dealer/service writer as they know very little about towing. The only real source is the ACTUAL owners manual, if and when it becomes available.

And even with the printed manual in hand there can still be errors like Honda says with their '05 Pilot manuals. Some of the manuals say it's towable, Honda themselves says that is an error in printing.

Ford hasn't published a 2017 Towing Guide that includes the new 2017 F-150 with the 10 speed transmission.

A better source for the Towing Guide is RV & Trailer Towing Guides | fleet.ford.com

There is typically a table of Ford vehicles that are flat towable in the yearly towing guide. My previous Ford (2013 F-150 4x4) was flat towable according to Ford. My present Ford (2016 Ford Escape FWD) is not. The AWD Escape is not towable on a dolly either which is why I didn't choose the AWD.

and 2017 raptors are not on lots....
an educated guess would be they are 4x4 and equipped with the automatic two speed system, which has been four down towable for sometime.
