What Is the Towing Capacity of a Ford Escape?

The 2015 Ford Escape has a towing capacity of 1,500 to 3,500 pounds, depending on how big the engine is and whether an optional tow package is added. When calculating how much a trailer weighs, it is important to factor in everything inside the trailer, including fluids and cargo.

The 2015 Ford Escape with a 2.5L I-4 FWD engine has a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. The 1.6L and 2.0L EcoBoost FWD/4WD models have a maximum towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. When the class II trailer tow package is added to the 2.0L EcoBoost FWD/4WD model, the towing capacity increases to 3,500 pounds.
