Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Ford Escape have four-wheel drive?

All-wheel drive is available on all trim styles for the 2022 Ford Escape (except their hybrid and plug-in hybrid models). However, front-wheel drive comes standard. This drivetrain has a unique feature called all-wheel-drive disconnect which can turn any model into a front-wheel-drive vehicle when it senses that all-wheel drive is unnecessary. This system improves fuel economy and handling to optimize your ride for the road ahead.

Do Ford Escapes offer 3rd-row seating?

There were rumors that a Ford Escape would come with third-row seating for up to seven passengers, but at the time of writing, it's not being released in America. This model will only be available in China, although you can hold onto the hope that maybe one day it will launch here in the United States.

How much can a Ford Escape tow?

The higher Ford Escape trim levels have a max towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds1 when the 2.0-liter EcoBoost® and Class II Trailer Tow Package is equipped. If you choose the 1.5-liter EcoBoost®, you will still have a 2,000-pound towing capacity. Even the hybrid models can tow a maximum of 1,500 pounds when properly outfitted, making it possible to take your favorite toys on the go.

Are Ford Escapes good in the snow?

A Ford Escape can easily tackle any weather condition because of its selectable drive modes. There are five modes in all, and they include: 

  • Normal
  • Eco
  • Sport
  • Slippery
  • Deep snow/sand

These modes automatically alter the traction and electronic stability control systems. When snow creates soft road conditions, it allows you to maintain control despite the state of the road around you. Use this feature to give yourself peace of mind and enhance your safety.
