Note: Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the vehicle. See Climate Control.

Follow these guidelines if you have a need for recreational towing. An example of recreational towing would be towing your vehicle behind a motorhome. We designed these guidelines to prevent damage to your transmission.

You can recreational tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground using the Manual Park Release procedure, or with all four wheels off the ground using a vehicle transport trailer. If you are using a vehicle transport trailer, follow the instructions specified by the equipment provider.

  • Only tow your vehicle in the forward direction.
  • Use the manual park release procedure. See Manually Releasing the Electric Parking Brake. Failure to do so may result in damage to the transmission.
  • Do not exceed 65 mph (105 km/h).

Emergency Towing

If your vehicle becomes inoperable without access to wheel dollies or a vehicle transport trailer, it can be flat-towed with all wheels on the ground, regardless of the powertrain and transmission configuration, under the following conditions:

  • Your vehicle is facing forward for towing in a forward direction.
  • Use the manual park release procedure. See Using Manual Park Release. Failure to do so may result in damage to the transmission.
