I am setting up my 2018 Chevy Equinox LT with the 1.5 liter 4 cylinder engine and push button ignition to flat tow. The owner's manual has you perform the following to prepare to tow:
Turn the vehicle on.
In vehicles equipped with AWD engage the AWD system and confirm that it is on.
Position the vehicle to be towed and secure it to the towing vehicle.
Shift the transmission to N (Neutral).
