Underneath the hood, the Ford Escape offers three engine options, each with a different towing capacity. See the Ford Escape towing capacity and the Ford Escape Hybrid towing capacity below:

  • 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

Each powertrain option has an available towing package to reach its maximum towing capacity. The Ford Escape towing package allows you to haul your cargo around Clifton Park efficiently and safely. You can also opt for the available all-wheel-drive system for an extra level of traction control as you tow or just when you’re navigating in inclement weather.

2021 Escape Towing and Performance Features

The Ford Escape engines offer strong performance for your towing jobs, but it also comes with a variety of towing features to make towing easier and more efficient. Read more about the different Ford Escape towing and performance features below:

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: In ideal Albany road conditions, all-wheel drive is shut off to promote efficiency. When more traction is necessary, the system deploys to provide optimal control.
  • Selectable Drive Modes: Another way that the Ford Escape puts control back in the driver’s hands is with this system, which allows you to choose between Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes, regardless of whether there is a trailer attached to the vehicle.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Clifton Park drivers don’t have to worry about losing control with a heavy trailer attached to their Escape, since this system restabilizes and corrects potential sway.
