A number of Fords can be flat-towed. Flat towing a Lincoln product
A number of Ford products can be flat-towed (all wheels on the ground). In that Lincoln uses the same engines and transmissions, I would think they can also be towed. However, can't get a straight answer. Does anyone know if what Lincoln products, if any, can be towed?

It is not advisable to tow any lincoln,due to the complex trannys in them,yes sure people do it,but latter on have tranny issues,the best way to tow a lincoln is up on a trailer.
What I posted is directly from the Ford/Lincoln towing guide.
I agree WWford,but they love to fix the high dollar trannys,and of course they would tell you it is towable,it,s called making money.
Newer Lincoln vehicles come with a 6yr/70k powertrain warranty that is NOT voided by flat towing if the vehicle is capable/follow owners manual.
Further research, both Ford and Lincoln have the same engine/tranny arrangement. Units have been successfully towed without general incident. Problems occur when units are run for extended periods (>8 hers) without periodically stopping to run the engine and cycle transmission fluid. Also issues with putting the front wheels of a AWD on a dolly and leaving the rear wheels on the ground.
All this info is good Broncolane,and WWford, but in my oppion,why ask for unseen trouble,load it on a trailer and you want have and issue with them.
We flat towed an Explorer for several years and never had any issues. When we bought it the dealer installed a “neutral tow device” that was created by Ford just for that. It didn’t affect the warranty and we sold it with almost 230,000 miles on it.
I have towed explorers around since 2005 never a problem 4 on the floor, easy book up blue ox system. 5minuts or less ready to tow. Going to upgrade to lincoln1
