2001 Ford Escape Towing Capacity


The 2001 Ford Escape was introduced to the market as a flexible SUV. The vehicle may be used for casual use or for towing large trailers.


  • The official Ford release on the 2001 Escape model states that the SUV has a towing capacity of about 3,500 lb. This figure is reported by Edmunds to be double the towing capacity of some of Ford's rivals, such as Suzuki and Toyota.


  • Unless otherwise ordered, the Ford Escape comes with a V6 engine, which is a necessity to tow the maximum capacity.


  • With its towing capacity, the Ford Escape can tow anything from a snowmobile to a boat. The weight capacity is also within the weight range for small trailers. If you do want to tow a trailer, you will need to buy a hitch. A hitch will need to be purchased separately as it is not a standard vehicle accessory.


  • Consumers can purchase the Class II towing package, which may come with the proper hitch needed to tow small trailers.
