If you're looking for a pickup to haul extra toys in the truck bed, Chevy Colorado tows four down.

I did my initial check using Dinghy guide at Motorhome magazine and then double checked with owners manual online and then triple checked with owners manual at car dealership. Too expensive of a process to get it wrong. Good Luck!!

I have two vehicles I can flat tow - 2010 Ford Flex and a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. Both are super easy to tow. I have pulled the Flex 10,000 miles and the Jeep 8,000 miles.

Works well for us. The link Fonzie provided is a good resource for other options.
X2 The Cherokee tows easy and is a simple setup. DW didnt want a "Jeep".

Mine didn't want a Jeep either, so we settled on a 2014 Honda CR-V AWD. They are flat-towable up to 2015 according to our Honda dealer. Starting in 2015 they have a new transmission that is not flat towable.
Bought it yesterday and know we're going to love it. I had a couple of Hondas a few years ago and was impressed with the quality and the way they held their value.
Thanks to all for the good input.
Retired and loving it...Can't wait to get back on the road!
Just got our new Forester 3051S ("Farley")

The OP mentions Ford Escape. I can't recommend it.

2013 Ford Escape (front wheel drive)

2013+ are not towable 4 on the ground. Before that they were stated to be but we've had many problems with our 2010.
