Do a search in the forums. It has been discussed a bit. According to the esourcebook, page 44, the Bronco Sport cannot be flat towed. It says,

"Four-wheel-down towing, also known as flat/neutral towing, refers to towing a vehicle with all four
of its wheels on the ground — for example, when towing a vehicle behind an RV (recreational
towing). Bronco Sport models do not offer four-wheel-down capability. Dolly-towing allows owners to tow their vehicle behind an RV or motorhome if they are unable to four-wheel-down their vehicle
Dolly-towing works by letting the front two wheels of the vehicle rest on it while the back two
wheels stay on the ground. Bronco Sport models do not offer dolly-tow capability."

Well, *(%[email protected]) I really wanted the Sport, but as we travel by RV a LOT! I will have to also go with the bigger Bronco, or something else as it is heavy, Ford is really shooting themselves in the foot with this one, there are thousands of Rv'ers out there and the Sport would be the perfect tow vehicle.

My advice is.. with all the extra money saved from not buying the 2/4 dr bronco, get a flatbed if you really want the sport.

I have been in contact with both the sales manager here at Future Ford, and with my Brother-in-Law who is the sales manager for Fox Ford in Grand Rapids, both have checked with their respective Rep's at Ford and tell me that the Sport is indeed flat towable, and that the internal esource document I was referencing is out of date and is being updated. So I am hanging onto my reservation for now in the hopes this turns out to be fact.

Well, I spoke with Ford this morning and they confirmed that the Sport can NOT be towed at all, so will cancel my reservation and keep my Bronco Black Diamond one.
