2022 Ford Escape Towing Capacity

2022 Ford Escape Towing a Boat


A compact crossover SUV like the Ford Escape may not be used for towing as much as trucks like the Ford F-150 but Ford is a forward-thinking brand. When properly equipped, the little Ford Escape’s big towing capacity maxes out at a substantial 3,500 pounds. That’s more than enough to carry a trailer full of outdoor toys for a weekend away or a camping trip. The Ford Escape Hybrid towing capacity is also a respectable 1,500 pounds. For more information on how the Ford Escape’s towing capabilities can enhance your trips around Monticello and beyond the limits of Rogers, contact us today.



Ford Escape Hybrid Towing Capacity: Engine Options

The Ford Escape is highly customizable compared to its main competitors in the compact crossover SUV segment, with several engine options available to match the specific needs of just about every Big Lake driver. Each available powertrain can be augmented with a tow package if you intend to use your Escape for hauling external cargo. Here are the maximum capabilities of each powertrain while properly equipped:

  • 2.0L EcoBoost®: 3,500-pound towing capacity with front-wheel or all-wheel drive
  • 1.5L EcoBoost®: 2,000-pound towing capacity
  • 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

Ford Escape Features

Every Ford Escape is well equipped, but here are a few specific highlights:

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: An Escape with AWD has excellent traction in inclement weather, but the AWD Disconnect allows that same Escape to attain excellent gas mileage like a two wheel drive vehicle in standard conditions.
  • Selectable Drive Modes: Ford Escape allows you to choose between Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes, while trailering or trailerless.
  • Trailer Sway Control: This advanced driver-assist system allows you greater control with more ease and peace of mind, knowing it can counteract what would otherwise be potentially dangerous trailer sway.
