Ford Escape Towing

When you combine power, versatility, and interior space, you get the 2022 Ford Escape, a beautiful set of wheels that’ll serve anyone in Hamilton, Madison, and Morrisville, New York. In this 2022 Ford Escape review by Friendly Ford of Hamilton, you can read all about what makes this SUV a beloved figure!


Pick Your Powertrain

One of the many great things about driving the 2022 Ford Escape SUV is that you have multiple options when it comes to the power that is generated under the hood. This automotive titan has three engines and four powertrains to pick from:

  • 1.5L EcoBoost®: Produces 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque; paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission
  • 2.0L EcoBoost®: Produces 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque; paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® with paddle shifters
  • 2.5L Hybrid: Produces 165 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque—total system horsepower tops out at 200; paired with an electronic Continuously Variable Transmission
  • 2.5L Plug-in Hybrid: Produces 165 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque—total system horsepower tops out at 221; paired with an electronic Continuously Variable Transmission

Opting for either of the EcoBoost® engines means you’ll be able to save more fuel. The Auto Start-Stop technology automatically shuts off the engine when the Escape is idle, and then turns it back on as soon as you lift your foot off the brake pedal.


Go Anywhere You Want

The 2022 Ford Escape allows you to customize your driving experience in a variety of ways. You can take on virtually any kind of terrain or road conditions, with the available selectable drive modes. Snow and sand are no match for you, with Deep Snow/Sand mode, while Slippery mode will make the handling on these kinds of roads easier than ever.

Plus, you can drive fuel efficiently with Eco mode, put a little umph into your trips with Sport mode, and Normal mode is there to give you a smooth, even-keeled experience.

Do you plan to take extra cargo with you? That’s where the towing capabilities of the 2022 Escape shine bright. When it’s properly equipped, the Escape has a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. This is enough to safely haul small trailers, boats, bikes, and more with ease.
