Pictures of the Escape Towing

Hello everyone! I was interested in seeing a thread showing what our little turbo 4 cylinders are capable of. I was hoping some people could throw up some pics of what their Ford Escape has towed before. I added some google pics to start the thread off.

I'm loving this thread so far everyone! It's great seeing what our FE can do. I just installed a hitch and wiring kit today. I will be towing for the first time in the FE on Monday.

My in laws in their 2013. 2.0 Ecoboost with factory tow kit.

The pontoon boat is much bigger than the Escape towing it.

In 2 days they towed it on a major highway 401, which is equivelant to an interstate major highway for over 6 hours.

Great pictures, keep em coming! Our Gidget retro teardrop camper should arrive in June. We are totally excited about this trailer. Never had one and am a rookie at trailer towing. We expect to use it allover Oregon and PNW where there are lots of mountains. My 2.0L escape with the towing package should do well after seeing what you are towing. Question for you. Do you think I should setup using the Gidget power brakes? The Gidget weight is 1210 lbs unloaded. https://www.facebook.com/Gidget-Retr...48645/?fref=ts
