Towing with a Ford Explorer

We have a new 2016 Ford Explorer with the V6 and tow package. We have a 15A that we are towing with a leased Ford 150 XLT with the tow package. Just wondering if anyone else is towing with Explorer in case we turn in the 150. Thoughts?

I believe my 2011 Ford Ranger has pretty much the same engine and transmission and it's towed my 19 from Alaska to Baja.

Pretty good chance the Explorer will do just fine.

Brian has kindly reminded me that that the equivalent Explorer to my Ranger isn't the same as the new Explorer. My friends have both and they both have the tow package but there are differences between the old and the new. But it looks like the new is quite capable of towing the 15.
