No. Many AWD vehicles can be towed 4 down, but can not be towed on a dolly. With AWD, all 4 wheels must be moving (4 down) or all 4 wheels must not be moving (as on a trailer), but you can't have 2 moving and 2 not moving as would happen on a dolly. Also, some vehicles may have clearance problems with the rear overhang if you put the front on a dolly, although I doubt that would be a problem with the Tracker.
Some true 4X4 vehicles are towable on a dolly and some are not. I think the Tracker is a true 4X4 with a transfer case with neutral, so it may be OK. Check the vehicle owners manual. If you don't have a manual, call the Chevrolet Zone Office. DO NOT rely on what any salesman says.
