Ford Escape Towing Features

To help you have a seamless towing experience, we made sure to include several towing features. You can pick which ones you need depending on the situation, but we know they will make your towing experience much more enjoyable. Some of these features include: 

  • Selectable Drive Modes: The Ford Escape puts control in the driver’s hands by allowing you to choose between Eco, Sport, Normal, Slippery, and Deep Snow/Sand modes, regardless of whether there is a trailer attached to the vehicle.
  • All-Wheel Drive Disconnect: All-wheel drive is shut off in ideal road conditions to promote efficiency. When more traction is necessary, the system deploys to provide optimal control.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Red Bank drivers don’t have to worry about losing control with a heavy trailer attached to their Escape, since this system restabilizes and corrects potential sway.
