2019 Escape Towing Capabilities

The 2019 Escape is a pretty small vehicle, making it easy to park in East Peoria. However, the even more exciting news is that you don’t have to compromise on performance and towing capabilities when you choose this compact SUV. The Escape towing capacity varies with your chosen trim level and components, including these engine options:

  • Minimum Towing Capacity: 1,500 pounds with a 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine
  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 3,500 pounds hauled by a 2.0L EcoBoost® engine

A tow package upgrade accents each towing feature, meaning towing through Pekin has never been easier! Additionally, if you choose the Intelligent 4WD System, you’ll get the added benefit of an extra level of traction and security when towing.
