LINCOLN MKX on the list

I've flat towed since 2002, a Ford Focus Std transmission, then in 2004, I towed a Ford Explorer(Eddie Bauer) with a Neutral Tow Switch installed, the last car I towed was a 2010 Ford Escape Limited (had the tranny fluid lowered as the TSB Instructed) Now I am considering a 2017 Lincoln MKX AWD, looking for any incites or suggestions, before I buy. The Lincoln will have the factory installed tow package if this helps, for keeping the battery charged. Would appreciate any suggestions.

We've been towing our 2016 MKX for almost a year now. We've had no problems and unlike with our previous toad, we did not install a fuse switch. The battery is always up and seemingly strong. We do crank and run it every morning before towing, just as the Lincoln owner's manual suggests.

That's great I never had a charge line on any of my Fords. Always stopped within the 6 hour limit and started the car and ran it for at least 5 minutes and put it thru the gears. Looking forward to our new toad.

Does the MKX register miles on the odometer when towing? Looking at a 2017 MKX AWD.

My 2017 Fusion Sport (2.7l ecoboost AWD) does not register miles in neutral tow mode.
