Question help with 2016 f150 4x4 towing

I know I can flat tow the 2016 4x4 F150 but Im wondering if the mileage turns while towing? Anyone know, the dealership can't find an answer.

I don't know about the F150 but none of the 6 toads we used registered mileage. I think when they went to digital speedometers (1990s???) nothing registers.

On our 2013 it don't as we turn the key to acc when in tow mode, if you have the push button start its my understanding that you press it without pressing the brake and its the same as the acc position so no mileage will show. Ford has a very simple towing procedure.
Be sure to add a charge line to keep the battery up as my owner manual warns that a low or dead battery could cause the transfer case to shift.

Thank you for the replies. I bought the truck. It goes into tow mode very easy. Time to buy a tow bar and other needed items!

You might want to use a LED light strip for tow lights and attach to the bottom of the tail gate as I did. Be sure to install a charge line to the truck battery.
