If you’d like to hook up your small trailer or boat to your brand-new SUV for the occasional road trip around Troy, you’ll be excited to learn the new Ford Edge SUV towing capabilities. Perfect for weekend trips, the 2022 model can tow up to 3,500 pounds when it is properly equipped! See how the capability changes with different Ford Edge engines and then learn about features that will help you harness this power on the roads. Without further ado, here is our 2022 Ford Edge towing capacity guide! 



Ford Edge Engine Options

The towing capacity is impressive thanks to the two Ford Edge engine options available, which include the best-in-class V6 engine: 

  • The Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost I-4, Turbocharged, Direct-Injection engine produces 245 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. This engine can tow up to 1,500 pounds.
  • The 2.7L EcoBoost V6, Twin-turbocharged, Direct-injection engine goes all out with 335 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. This engine achieves the maximum 3,500-pound towing capacity

If you’re looking for a powerful performance near Albany, the Ford Edge ST might be the trim for you. It comes equipped with cluster/paddle shifters, enhanced active noise control, revised electronic throttle programming, sharp engine braking, and much more! 

Ford Edge Towing Features

The 2022 Ford Edge towing capacity outstands most average SUV towing capabilities in its class, but with its features, you can handle the power in the Schenectady area with even more confidence. Here are some of them that make up the reliable yet easy-to-maneuver Ford Edge towing experience: 

  • Class II Trailer Tow Package is required to achieve the Ford towing maximum of 3,500 pounds (when equipped with all-wheel drive).
  • Hill Start Assist automatically holds the brake when the SUV is on an incline to prevent backward roll as you’re switching your foot from the brake to the gas pedal.
  • Intelligent All-Wheel Drive uses sensors to monitor traction and balance torque between the front and rear wheels to maximize traction and for better handling.
  • Traction Control limits wheelspin by reducing throttle output.
  • Trailer Sway Control allows you to tow more confidently by applying brakes or reducing engine torque when necessary to maintain control.

Ford Edge Towing Package

Bump up the new Ford Edge towing power with the Class II Trailer Tow Package. This package is standard on ST while it is available on SEL and Titanium AWD models. Plus, it also boosts your confidence when towing! For example, the included trailer sway control helps navigate safely by detecting the amount of sway of the trailer and adjusting the brake pressure or reducing engine torque for as much control as possible.
