We towed a 2012. Google tow dinghies and make sure the 2010 can be towed.

towing a ford edge

I have a FRONT wheel drive 2010 ford edge that I tow 4 wheels down. First and far most you should check your qwners manual.

I place the key to the on position this will unlock the sterring wheel, place transmission in N. that's it.

I would recommend an auxillary brake controler, again read your owners manual AWD cannot be towed 4 down
Good Luck

ford edge

We are towing our second Ford Edge. The first one was an 08 2 wheel drive. We towed with a Blue Ox setup and no issues. We towed it from 08 to 2011 for about 20K miles. We now tow a 2011 with a Blue Ox and have towed about 15K miles. Again no issues but the baseplate is different from the 08 to the 11. As a matter of fact, I still have the 08 baseplate in the garage.

GJHD....

I have exactly the same Edge you have... I'm thinking the Invisibrake will be the way I'll go for auxiliary braking.....
