Thinking about getting back into a motor home, before I towed a Saturn. If I do get back in I would like a flat tow midsize truck. I saw a reference that the 2022 Ford Ranger was flat towable with an option. Anybody know what that is?

I’ll ask a dealer, but they’re not always the sharpest pencil in the drawer when it comes to flat towing. Again it’ll be a 2022 4wd Ranger.

TIA

max speed of 35 and max tow distance is 50 miles, so NO no matter which transmission. Page 229 on the manual.

That’s nuts unless that’s referring to a standard Ranger without the “option.”

The 2022 4 wheel drive Ford Ranger is towable 4 wheels down. Many are out there behind MH's right now.

Take it you did not read page 229 and 230.

Very strange ! On that page, it states exactly what you said. Then it talks about "recreational towing" (commonly referred to as 4 wheel down"), so it does not make sense to me.

Google "2022 Ranger Owners Manual" and read that page yourself.

Check with Ford, the only reliable source, and be accurate as to all specs.

Because “Many are out there behind MH's right now” doesn’t make it four down towable without damage.

Per the 2022 Ford Towing Guide the 2022 Ranger 4WD is flat towable.

I figured you were talking from experience, which I was looking for. Sounds like you were just quoting.
