Towing A 2014 Ford Explorer

Are there any of you out there that tow a 2014 Ford Explorer? I have been thinking of buying one to tow behind my 2006 Winnebago Journey and was wondering what the procedure is for towing. I think it states in the owners manual that you need to put the key into the accessory position, but the new Explorer's come with a push button type start switch. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Sammie

Thanks, Gary. Is your explorer the FWD or AWD? Can you tow either one?
