Ford Escape Towing Capacity

If you're looking for a small SUV that provides an impressive amount of towing ability, your best option is the Ford Escape. With the right equipment, your Ford Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds, allowing you to haul a trailer or small boat. Here are a few facts about the 2018 Ford Escape towing capacity that you should consider if you're in need of a new vehicle to help you get around Malvern, West Chester, or Glen Mills.

Engines and Towing

As with every vehicle you could choose, the key to getting the most towing power out of your Escape is choosing the right engine. There are three excellent engines available with this SUV, all of which offer versatile towing ability.

The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, for example, produces 168 horsepower and can tow up to 1,500 pounds, the lowest towing capacity of the Escape's engine lineup. If your vehicle is equipped with the 1.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, which produces 179 horsepower, you will be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds. Finally, for the most towing power, you can select the 2.0-liter EcoBoost®. This engine outputs 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, and can tow up to 3,500 pounds, assuming you have also opted for the Class II Trailer Tow Package.

Interior Storage

The impressive 2018 Ford Escape towing capacity will allow you to haul your equipment with the greatest of ease. In addition to towing a loaded trailer, the Escape also allows you to store an impressive amount of items inside your vehicle, thanks to flexible cargo space.

The second row of the Escape can be folded to adjust the available space according to your needs. Leave the seats in their normal position, and you'll have 34.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the rear seats flat, and you'll have 67.8 cubic feet of space with which to work. With the interior cargo space and towing capacity of the 2018 Escape, you'll never have to leave an important item behind.

Built for Adventure

The benefit of the towing capacity of the Ford Escape is that you'll be able to go on an adventure whenever you want. If you're interested in taking your vehicle on a road trip adventure, then you may also want to learn about the 4-wheel drive system offered by this SUV.

With the Escape, you can choose the available Intelligent 4WD system. This 4-wheel drive system reads both the road conditions and your traction multiple times a second, and if conditions change, can adjust your torque to make sure you stay in control.
