They list 14 Ford Models for 2018. Also the guide provides a lot of information with respect to tow bars, supplemental Brakes and other modifications that need to be considered. Good Luck and happy trails to you
This guide is wrong for a Spark, don't believe everything you read, Chevy has a Bullitin out on towing it and the procedure.

Alas! Anyone wanting to flat-tow their Ford can DIY it for a couple bucks and a little effort. I'll share my research files to a requester.....I saved all the info.

Run a hot wire from your RV trailer plug to your toad plug, then to your Batt this keeps the Batt charged, and use the toad brake the way you did previously did. You do not need to run a ground wire. gpscotty.

Towing 4 down

I have a 1997 Ford F150 2 wheel drive. Can I use the switch to tow it 4 down or does the transmission not have the electric neutral switch? Thanks in advance. gps

There is no transfer case in the 4X2 that would allow you to do so.

you might already have seen it, but you can look at

Downloadable Dinghy Towing Guides | MotorHome Magazine

It will list by year which vehicles can be towed.

2018 Ford Focus/flat towing

I had the road master push button battery disconnect switch installed along with a road master power (battery) supply cable installed. After following tow instructions in owners manual, I push the button, power is disconnected, plug in my break buddy system to the power cable, oh and I have the tail lights connected to my class c and all road lights work in conjunction with RV braking system. BlueOx tow bar, roadmaster base plates. Not cheap but no problems.

Anyone Towing a Ford Edge?

We just got our 2007 Monaco Cemelot and I want to know if a Ford Edge would be a good tow vehicle? It’s my understanding that I just put it in neutral and unplug the battery and I’m good to go forward only??
Thanks!
Monica

Ive pulled two Ford Edges (FWD) a 2007 and a 2011. Both great. Turn key on and place in neutral. I turn off the A/C and the radio. I also have a hot electrical line from the coach to the car to keep the car battery charged. It makes a huge difference.
