According to the 2019 Dinghy Towing Guides, only the 4WD models are flat towable:

"Only 4WD models are flat towable. Place transfer case and transmis-sion in N position and engage four-wheel-down towing feature. Don’t disconnect battery during towing. It prevents the transfer case from shifting properly and may cause vehicle to roll, even if transmission is in P. See owner’s manual for detailed instructions."

From what I know and others can correct me if wrong, the 10-speed is the only transmission available and no manual gearbox is offered.

All models (XL, XLT, and Lariat) and trim levels with 4WD should have the same drivetrain configuration.

The original 2019 owner's manual pages on "Recreational Towing" are attached for more detailed information on procedures to follow.

I agree with everything Theroc said. I was planning to purchase a Ranger. Even had one on pre-order until finding a new F150 XLT 4x4 that was a few thousand dollars cheaper.
