This is completely wrong for the Escape.
The only extra equipment on a factory tow package escape is the hitch, wiring and sway control programming. All else is the same.
That is why there is such debate and controversy here on the site. Sway control is the only difference from an aftermarket hitch.Why Does sway control increase towing from 2000# to 3500#?
Really, the Physical Limits are probably as much to do with the factory hitch, which is a full square tube in the frame bumper replacement as opposed to aftermarkets which are just attached to the outside of the frame.
The sway control does significantly add to the Safety Limits when towing.
