Which Ford Flex to tow

I think it is time, the 05 Saturn Vue is beginning to show it's age. I would like to tow the Ford Flex with it's 7 passenger seating. But which model has the lowest curb weight. I will "test drive" any serious considerations to the local scales, but I would like a place to start. If you currently tow a Flex and know it's curb weight could you please tell me which model...eco boost or standard engine...which wheel configuration?

We tow an 09 AWD Flex with the non ecoboost 3.5 V-6. I haven't weighed it, but I think I read somewhere that it was around 4400 lbs. I don't think there could be more than a couple hundred pounds difference between models. JMO Randy

According to my book the 2WD is a little over 4400 and the AWD is a little over 460, we have a 11 Flex but I don't tow it, it my wife's car and she does not want tow brackets on her car ��

We tow a 2012 Flex eco boost AWD. I weighed it and it was 4800 pounds over 1200 pounds lighter than our F150 at 6000 pounds. That weight is what determined which vehicle we were going to tow.

I tow a 2013 Flex EB AWD also. I can barely tell it's back there and it doesn't seem to affect mileage at all.

It's a great car, and a great toad, enjoy!
