By: PineRidge Ford   |   31 Oct 2022

Many people put in a lot of work during the week and play hard on the weekends. That usually means you need a car capable of pulling that little boat or those jet skis. Thankfully, the 2022 Ford Escape can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly outfitted.

This blog post will offer a closer look at the 2022 Ford Escape’s towing capacity and its prominent features.

The 2022 Ford Escape Engine’s Towing Capacity

The 2022 Ford Escape has four different engine choices, each with a different towing capacity. What is the difference in towing capacity between the 2.0L EcoBoost® engine and the 2.5L Hybrid iVCT Atkinson-Cycle I-4 engine in the 2022 Ford Escape? Each engine of the 2022 Ford Escape tow the following:

  • 2.0L EcoBoost®: 3,500-pound towing capacity
  • 1.5L EcoBoost®: 2,000-pound towing capacity with front-wheel or all-wheel drive

The 2022 Ford Escape, with its 3,500-pound towing capacity, can tow the following vehicles:

  • Camper frame
  • Teardrop trailer
  • Compact utility trailer
  • Compact utility trailer
  • Tow dolly
  • Fisherman’s trailer
  • Motorcycle trailer
  • Trailer for jet skis
  • Kayak or canoe trailer

There is more to this incredible SUV than just the remarkable towing capacity, though. The Escape will make towing on Murrells Inlet roads safer and simpler with all of its amenities. 

A few of the significant components include the following:

  • Drive Disconnect for All Wheels: All-wheel drive is turned off under optimal driving conditions to increase efficiency. When additional traction is required, the system deploys to offer the best possible control.
  • Different Drive Modes: This technology, which lets you select between Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes regardless of whether the car is towing a trailer, is another way the Ford Escape returns control to the driver.
  • Control of Trailer Sway: With a hefty trailer linked to their Escape, you won’t have to worry about losing control because this technology stabilizes and corrects any potential sway.

The 2022 Ford Escape’s Cargo and Storage Volume

The brand-new 2022 Ford Escape has a large amount of cargo volume and passenger room inside. The Ford family may anticipate using between 34.4 and 37.5 cubic feet of space with all five passengers seated or between 60.8 and 65.4 cubic feet of freight volume. 

Additional storage options include the glove box, overhead console with sunglasses storage, and centre console with a handy media bin. Enjoy accessories like the cargo mat and the cargo shade with simple access. 

The 2022 Ford Escape keeps every excursion organized, stress-free, and comfortable for the whole family with second-row sliding seats.


The 2022 Ford Escape is a significant improvement over the previous model, which had a cargo volume of 30.8 cubic feet and a towing capacity of 2,000 pounds. The new model also has a more powerful engine and a better suspension system. 

The improved cargo capacity and towing capacity make the new Ford Escape a more versatile and capable vehicle. This is why it’s a must-buy for people on the lookout for a great investment.
