Towing with a 2.0 litre Ford Escape

Someone was asking about towing with a Ford Escape 2.0 litre. Google Ford United Kingdom or Ford Australia. You will find the Ford
Kuga their name for the Escape. Check out its towing capabilities. You may be surprised.

That is common with many models. Trailers, hitches, terrain, towing regulations and speeds, and towing-related vehicle software are all different from North America. Sometimes there are subtle but important differences in the vehicle itself, such as a softer or firmer suspension to suit driver preferences.

Regardless of whether there are any differences of substance, remember that if anything breaks, it will be fixed by a North American dealer, and if anyone gets hurt, it will land in a North American court.

It could be useful information to compare the relative capabilities of two different vehicles, but you're on shaky ground if you use European tow ratings to pick a vehicle for towing in North America.
