The Ford Escape Hybrid towing capacity reaches up to 1,500 pounds. No matter which Ford Escape you choose, you’ll have plenty of power and performance options designed to fit the way you drive in Peoria. Take a deeper look into the Ford Escape towing capacity with Mike Murphy Ford.


Ford Escape Towing Capacity by Engine

While both Ford Escape Hybrid towing capacity numbers remain at 1,500 pounds, the two gas engine options are able to tow more. Which one has the higher towing capacity, and what do you need to achieve the top Ford Escape towing capacity in East Peoria? Here are the numbers:

  • 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

To make your towing safer and easier, each powertrain can be equipped with an available tow package. Also, when you choose the available all-wheel drive system, you’ll get increased traction and control on Pekin streets when it’s raining or icy.


Ford Escape Towing and Performance Features

In addition to the available tow package, the Ford Escape towing capacity is enhanced by towing and performance features that simplify the towing process. They include:

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: To keep your Morton drives fuel efficient, this feature shuts off all-wheel drive during ideal driving conditions.
  • Selectable Drive Modes: These include Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes, and provide you with the best degree of traction for the job.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Worry less about losing control of a heavy trailer attached to your Escape with this system that restabilizes and corrects potential sway.
