You would want to call a Ford dealer with the VIN of your 2015 Ford Edge Titanium and they will be able to tell you what transmission you have.

There are 5 items needed when flat-towing a vehicle. You will need the base plates, tow bar, safety cables, lighting, and most states now require a supplemental brake system.

In case you do not have the items needed I will make recommendations that will work well for your Edge.

The base plates I recommend are part # RM-524454-4.

The tow bar I recommend that will work well with the base plates is part # RM-520.

For safety cables I recommend part # RM-643.

For lighting you can use the diode kit, # RM-15267, and not have to worry about cutting into the taillight housing. This will splice into your taillight wiring to allow your tow vehicle to control the taillight assemblies of the towed vehicle. This comes with a round 6-way connector that you will install on the front of your towed vehicle and enough coiled wire to go from there to the RV.

And finally, most states now require supplemental braking in the vehicle being flat towed. The easiest system to set up and use is the Blue Ox Patriot # BLU37TR, that applies the vehicle brakes in proportion to how much the tow vehicle is braking. This is the safest way to stop and it reduces wear and tear on both vehicles.

Most likely you will also need a high low adapter so that the tow bar will be level when you are flat towing. I attached a link to a page that has all of the ones we carry.

I have included a couple of helpful links to our articles on flat towing for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more specific information on flat towing your vehicle.
