You might find yourself wanting to bring your Ford model along for the ride, and if that’s the case, we’re sure you’ve wondered “Which 2019 Ford Vehicles Can Be Flat Towed?”
Today, our Sherwood Ford team will give you this answer, as well as a brief rundown of what flat-towing is and why it’s such a popular option for drivers across Canada!
Benefits and Functions of Flat Towing a Ford Model
Flat towing, also known as “four-down towing” or “dinghy towing,” is quickly becoming the premiere method of hauling your vehicle on long trips. With flat towing, you simply attach your compatible vehicle to a tow bar located on your RV and place your model in neutral so it’s able to roll freely behind.
It may seem straightforward enough but knowing whether or not your vehicle can be flat towed is crucial before you set everything up and start driving. This is because of the prevalence of electronic transmissions and part-time Four-Wheel Drive systems on today’s models – if you’re not prepared, flat towing these types of vehicles could lead to serious issues with their transmission systems.
