Ford Transit Connect

Recommended Posts

According to the owners manual for a 2013 Transit Connect, it is not towable four wheels down. Here are the instructions for emergency and recreational towing from the owners manual.


Emergency Towing

If your vehicle becomes inoperable (without access to wheel dollies,

car-hauling trailer, or flatbed transport vehicle), it can be flat-towed

(all wheels on the ground, regardless of the powertrain and transmission

configuration) under the following conditions:

• Your vehicle is facing forward for towing in a forward direction.

• Place the transmission in position N. See Automatic transmission in

the Transmission chapter if you cannot move the transmission into N.

• Maximum speed is 35 mph (56 km/h).

• Maximum distance is 50 miles (80 kilometers).

Recreational Towing

Note: Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to

prevent exhaust fumes from entering your vehicle. See the Climate

Control chapter.

Follow these guidelines if you have a need for recreational towing,

such as towing your vehicle behind a motorhome. We designed these

guidelines to prevent damage to your transmission.

Do not tow your vehicle with the front wheels on the ground. It is

recommended to tow your vehicle with the front drive wheels on a dolly

with the transmission in position N or with all four (4) wheels off the

ground, such as when using a car-hauling trailer.

Hope this information helps.
