2011-2013 Explorer for tow vehicle?


I'm replacing our trusty 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee - we've outgrown the Jeep and need a third road seat. So, we've looked at the Honda Pilot (yuck) and Ford Explorer. Love the 2011-13 Explorers, but wondering about towing.

Does anyone have one of these? The powertrain is different - transverse V6 engine, FWD with RWD assist to make "4x4" - I didn't see any 4WD low option, which we use all of the time for pulling out of our launch.

Also wondering about braking. I have a '79 S&S and the trailer is without brakes.

Thanks for the thoughts!
