2020 Ford Escape Towing

The 2020 Ford Escape is a capable and well-equipped compact crossover SUV that can serve the needs of a wide variety of Moose Jaw drivers. In addition to its well-equipped interior, the long list of standard features, and efficient performance, the Escape can also deliver a maximum towing capacity of 1,587 kilograms when properly equipped. That’s enough to haul a small boat or travel trailer out to Meadow Lake Provincial Park. Learn more about the Ford Escape towing capacity in this guide from Capital Ford Lincoln.

Towing Capacity by Ford Escape Engine

The towing capacity that Weyburn drivers can expect depends on which Ford Escape engine you get. If you choose an Escape model equipped with the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine, you’ll enjoy the maximum towing capacity of 1,587 kilograms. The standard 1.5L EcoBoost® engine is no slouch either, with a tow rating of up to 907 kilograms. Finally, the Escape Hybrid and Escape Plug-In Hybrid models can each tow up to 680 kilograms.

2020 Escape Towing and Performance Features

The Escape has been built to provide strong and dependable performance on Estevan roads and beyond. Some of the features that help to boost the Ford Escape towing capacity and overall capability include:

  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: This smart AWD system activates only when needed, which can help to conserve fuel. In conditions where all-wheel drive isn’t required only the front wheels are engaged, which allows for more efficient performance.
  • Selectable Drive Modes: Choose between Sport, Eco, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand drive modes to get the best possible traction and control in all kinds of weather and road conditions.
  • AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control): This system can automatically correct slippage and steering issues to help you maintain control.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Designed to make towing easier and safer, this system restabilizes and corrects trailer sway to keep your SUV and trailer in sync.
