I suggest you use the Google search box at the top of the page. There are many folks towing a Ford Flex, various years and equipment levels. Make sure you follow the owner's manual recreational towing section.

From the 2015 Flex owners manual
You can tow your all-wheel drive vehicle with all four wheels on the
ground or with all four wheels off the ground using a vehicle transport
trailer. Do not tow your all-wheel drive vehicle with the front wheels off
the ground (by using a tow dolly) and the rear wheels on the ground.
This causes damage to your all-wheel drive system. If you are using a
vehicle transport trailer, follow the instruction specified by the
equipment provider. If you are towing with all four wheels on the ground,
see the following instructions.
If you tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground:

Tow only in the forward direction.

Release the parking brake.

Place the transmission in position

Do not exceed 65 mph (105 km/h).

Start the engine and allow it to run for five minutes at the beginning
of each day and every six hours thereafter. With the engine running
and your foot on the brake, shift into position
and then into
before shifting back into position

Been towing our 09 AWD Flex for over 2 years now with no problems. I do have the transmission serviced every year with Amsoil synthetic fluid. If I run for a long day, when I stop for fuel I do start it and run it through the gears like Ford recommends. I don't always go 65 mph like they say, I have run 75 and still have no problems. Randy

My DW and I are looking for a Ford Flex or a Jeep Wrangler, we have not decided yet. But I guess the Ford Flex is two or three notches up the list. Anyone towing a 2016 Ford Flex. With a Class-C Fleetwood Jamboree?
