Mine is a 2014 Ford Explorer. Tows in neutral with the accessory power on. No problem there, just installed a charge line. No fuse removal.

Check out a Ford C-max hybrid. I've heard that the special transmission in the hybrid tows very well. Also heard good things about the earlier Ford Escape Hybrid as a toad......NOT THE REGULAR ESCAPE... But the HYBRID model made between 200? - 2012.

What else should I be looking at. I'm not impressed with the Honda's or their dealers.

Here in the chart are all the choices by Ford for 4-down towing.
