Can only state that per the 2010 Motor Home tow guide that, the MKX & MKX AWD are towable to a top speed of 65 mph, but,as per guide, should be started for 5 minutes at each fuel stop. The guide also states the same for our 2009 Escape but as per our owners manual, no mention is made to either the speed limitation and or the required 5 minute run time at each fill up. The dealer should be able to answer this question, but I would want to see it in writing as provided by Ford Motor Co.
I am considering purchasing a Lincoln MKX to tow four-wheels down behind my coach. Has anyone out there had experience towing this vehicle?

Welcome to the FMCA forum. Before making a purchase, look in the vehicle's owner's manual. This is the only place, where towing instruction/limitations are stated, in writing. The owner's manual should also state the process to successfully tow.

Front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles:
Tow your FWD vehicle with all four wheels on the ground or with the
front wheels off the ground by using a tow dolly. If you are using a tow
dolly follow the instructions specified by the equipment provider.
All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles:
Tow your AWD vehicle with all four wheels on the ground or with all four
wheels off the ground using a vehicle transport trailer. Do not tow your
AWD vehicle with the front wheels off the ground (by using a tow
dolly) and the rear wheels on the ground; this will cause damage
to your AWD system. If you are using a vehicle transport trailer, follow
the instruction specified by the equipment provider.
Note: If you tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground, follow
• Tow only in the forward direction.
• Release the parking brake.
• Place the transmission shift lever in N (Neutral).
• Place the ignition in the accessory position (refer to Starting in the Driving chapter).
• Do not exceed 65 mph (105 km/h)
• Start the engine and allow it to run for five minutes at the beginning
of each day and at each fuel stop.
