2019 Ford Escape Engines and Towing Capabilities


It's true that the 2019 Escape is a smaller SUV, which makes it easy to handle and maneuver in Belleville. You might think a compact SUV can't boast great towing power, but the Escape challenges that notion. You'll be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds, depending on which trim level and engine you opt for. Here are the towing and engine details:

  • With a 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine: Maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds
  • With a 2.0L EcoBoost® engine: Maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds

With each trim level, you'll have access to an optional tow package, further increasing your safety as you tow through Granite City. And, when you spring for the Intelligent 4WD System, you'll also have peace of mind with increased traction control.
