Usually the best place to find information on flat towing procedures is the owner's manual, so that's going to be the best place for you to confirm the information that I've found. I've outlined the flat towing procedures for a 2016 Ford Edge SEL below, which will depend on a number of different features:

You can tow your 2.7L EcoBoost or 3.5L (6F50 or 6F55) equipped vehicle with all four wheels on the ground. If you tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground, follow these procedures:

-Tow only in the forward direction.
-Release the parking brake.

For vehicles with Keyless Start (If Equipped):

-Start the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal, and then pressing the keyless start button until the vehicle starts.
-Press the brake pedal and shift the gearshift into neutral (N).
-Turn the vehicle off by pressing the keyless start button once.
-Disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery. You need the door key to lock and unlock doors when the battery cable is disconnected. See Changing the 12V Battery.

Note: The anti-theft system does not work until you reconnect the battery cable. Start the engine within 15 minutes of reconnecting the battery cable.

Vehicles with an Ignition Key (If Equipped):

-Start the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal, and then turning the ignition key until the vehicle starts.
-Press the brake pedal and shift the transmission into neutral (N).
-Turn the vehicle off by turning the ignition key past the accessory position. The key position is between the accessory and off positions.
-Disconnect the negative (black) cable from the battery. See Changing the 12V Battery.

Note: The anti-theft system does not work until you reconnect the battery cable.

-Start the engine within 15 minutes of reconnecting the battery cable.

All Vehicles: Do not exceed 65 mph (105 km/h).

Start the engine and allow it to run for five minutes at the beginning of each day and every six hours thereafter. With the engine running and your foot on the brake, shift into drive (D) and then into reverse (R) before shifting back into neutral (N).
