2019 Ford Escape Grill 

Despite its status as a compact SUV, the Ford Escape defies its categorization, promising Mascoutah and East St. Louis drivers a spacious interior and powerful performance. But what is the 2019 Ford Escape towing capacity? Depending on which of the Ford Escape engines you select, you can expect a tow range from 1,500 pounds to 3,500 pounds, which is plenty for that family camping trip away from Belleville. Discover everything you need to know about Ford Escape towing and performance with Auffenberg Ford Belleville.

Ford Escape Towing Specs and Features

Performance is certainly key to the 2019 Ford Escape towing capabilities. While it remains on the smaller side, the 2019 Escape offers impressive towing capacity:

  • Minimum Towing Capacity: 1,500 pounds with a 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine
  • Maximum Towing Capacity: 3,500 pounds hauled by a 2.0L EcoBoost® engine

Escape towing is enhanced with an upgrade to the available tow package to boost your hauling power. The intelligent 4WD system also adds extra traction as you tow. Need more towing power? The 2020 Ford Explorer can tow up to 5,600 pounds.

Spacious Features for the Ford Escape Compact SUV

Along with strong towing numbers, the 2019 Ford Escape also provides ample space for both passengers and cargo. This compact SUV seats up to five people within 98.7 cubic feet of passenger volume, along with a maximum cargo volume of 68 cubic feet. When all seats are occupied, drivers still have 34 cubic feet to work with for their cargo.

 What's more, the Escape also comes packed with countless amenities and safety features to keep everyone inside connected, entertained, and secure. These include:

2019 Ford Escape Technology
  • SYNC® Enhanced Voice Recognition and available SYNC® 3 with Wi-Fi® Hotspot
  • Available Ford Safe and Smart™ Package with adaptive cruise control, Lane-Keeping System, and more
  • Media bin center console with USB access
  • Available foot-activated power liftgate
  • AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control) corrects slippage and steering issues in challenging road conditions
  • Reverse sensing system with select trims
  • Trailer Sway Control in the trailer tow package to restabilize and correct potential sway

The 2019 Ford Escape towing capabilities are definitely a strong perk for this compact SUV, but there are plenty more benefits that enhance every drive.
