By flat bed or dolly, not by its wheels. Also when loading on flat bed there is a procedure you have to do to prevent the air bags from deploying as a result of the tilt sensor being triggered. As always verify with the owners manual for yourself.

Yes manual is the way to go and the info was very informative , but I was referring to towing something behind vehicle like cargo trailer. I looked and could not find anything in manual about towing trailer with vehicle.

I asked the same question a while ago, with no response.
I can tell you that, when I towed a small boat, the engine RPM's were a lot higher and gas consumption
was about 30-40 percent more. Otherwise, the vehicle handled the towing very well, with plenty of power.

So I asked my dealer this question and was told that the drive mode didn't matter, but they did suggest that I disable start/stop so it's less jerky.
