Depending on which engine you choose, your 2020 Ford Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds! That’s more than enough to get your camper to Starved Rock State Park, or your boat to Goose Lake! Learn more about the Ford Escape towing capacity with Mike Murphy Ford.

Ford Escape Towing Capacity by Engine

East Peoria drivers have options when they choose their 2020 Ford Escape engine. The most fuel-efficient hybrid engines still generate a Ford Escape towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. Here’s how the four engine options compare:

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

The upgradeable tow package available for each powertrain makes towing around Pekin simple and safe. The available all-wheel drive system can add even more traction and stability as you tow your trailer through inclement weather.

Ford Escape Towing and Performance Features

But that’s not all that makes the Ford Escape towing capacity so impressive. Here are a few of the performance features that make towing even easier with the Ford Escape:

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: All-wheel drive is great when conditions are rough, but it’s not the most efficient way to drive. That’s why the Ford Escape lets you choose when to engage all-wheel drive.
  • Selectable Drive Modes: Along with being able to choose when you use AWD, your Ford Escape offers these drive modes to accommodate Morton-area conditions:  Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes.
  • Trailer Sway Control: This system restabilizes and corrects potential sway, giving you more control over your trailer.
