2022 Ford Escape Towing a Boat

 

Looking for a crossover that is ready for adventure but also efficient and versatile enough for everyday drives in Wall Township? You have found your match in the Ford Escape. Available as both a traditional gasoline-powered model as well as a hybrid, the Ford Escape proves that compact SUVs are more than capable of handling tough towing tasks with ease. So, what is the Ford Escape towing capacity? The answer to this question varies based on whether you prefer the standard model or the hybrid as well as your choice of engine. Learn all about the Ford Escape and Ford Escape Hybrid towing capacity in this guide from DCH Ford of Eatontown. 

 

Ford Escape Towing Capacity by Engine & Configuration

As mentioned above, the Ford Escape towing capacity is dependent on the engine under the hood and whether you select the hybrid variant. Keep in mind that the Ford Escape Hybrid towing capacity is not quite as robust as what you can expect from the purely gasoline-powered Escape. Below, you will see how your preferences affect the Ford Escape towing capacity. 

  • 2.0L EcoBoost®: 3,500-pound towing capacity 
  • 1.5L EcoBoost®: 2,000-pound towing capacity with front-wheel or all-wheel drive
  • Hybrid 2.5L Hybrid iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4: 1,500-pound towing capacity
  • Plug-In Hybrid 2.5L Hybrid iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4: 1,500-pound towing capacity

Features that Enhance Towing in Tinton Falls 

If you plan to do a lot of towing with your Ford Escape, you can haul bulky items with complete confidence thanks to the Escape’s wealth of features that ensure you are ready for any road conditions that you encounter in Red Bank and beyond. 

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: When everything is smooth-sailing, all-wheel drive is shut off for more efficient performance. When traction is less than ideal, this feature kicks in to help. 
  • Selectable Drive Modes: Drivers can choose between Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes, regardless of whether there is a trailer attached to the vehicle. It’s easy to tailor the performance of the Escape to meet your needs. 
  • Trailer Sway Control: This system restabilizes and corrects potential sway so that your trailer is secure.
