Ford Fusion hybrids have always been towable (in production since the 2009 model year) as well as the newer Fusion Energi (plug-in) models. I previously towed a 2012 Fusion hybrid and now tow a 2019 Fusion Energi model. The current Energi model is the easiest to set up for towing yet - - no fuses to pull, etc. Any time the transmission is placed in neutral, a message pops up: "to engage Neutral Tow, press L" When you press L, a message "Neutral Tow engaged" pops up. The transmission is now locked in N and you're good to go. All these Ford hybrid vehicles (including Lincoln MKZ models) tow well and are comfortable and fuel efficient vehicles to drive as toads.

Our Chev Equinox listed below makes a great toad and very easy to set up.
All 2010-2017 V6 can be towed, some pre 2018 4cyl with electric steering have a "death wobble" issue which I understand is easily overcome, but not sure how.
2018's and up depend on the transmission and engine if they're towable or not.

We tow a 2011 CRV with no problems. 30 MPG when driving mixed. The last year CRV towable was 2014. Plenty of low mileage CRV’s out there (try Carmax). Also available in AWD versions.
