2018 Escape Towing Capabilities

While it remains on the smaller side, the 2018 Escape is backed by mighty performance to tow your belongings around South Bend. The towing capacity depends on different trim-level components, such as which Ford Escape engine you choose:

Each towing feature is accented by a upgradable tow package, so your haul around Osceola is done simply and safely. You can also opt for the Intelligent 4WD System on the Escape that’ll bring an extra level of traction control as you tow a trailer or other large items.
