The 2019 Ford Escape is a compact SUV that feels much stronger. With a roomy interior and powerful performance, Troy-area drivers can’t help but ask, what is the towing capacity of the Escape. At Dave Arbogast, we understand how important hauling your large items around Dayton safely is.

2019 Escape Towing Capabilities

The 2019 Escape may be a smaller SUV, but it still packs an incredible performance so you can tow your belongings around Vandalia. The new Ford Escape has a towing capacity that relies on different trim level components like the Ford Escape engine options:

  • Minimum Towing Capacity: 1,500 pounds with a 2.5L Duratec four-cylinder engine

The Escape’s towing feature is emphasized by an upgradeable tow package, allowing you to haul around Troy safely and confidently. Drivers can also opt for the Intelligent 4WD System on the Escape, which will bring an extra level of traction control as you’re towing larger items.

Spacious Features for the Ford Escape Compact SUV

With 98.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, you and your family get lots of space to enjoy your ride in around Vandalia. The new Escape also comes packed with a slew of innovative safety features and amenities that will keep you protected and connected while on the go:
