When it comes to towing power on your Ford EV, not all vehicles are created equal. Drivers need to know their electric Ford car’s towing performance and capability before attaching a trailer to it. Learn the towing capabilities of Ford EVs and hybrid vehicles at Kearny Mesa Ford today.

Ford F-150 Lightning

The Ford F-150 line is known for its power and towing capacity; that’s true of its hybrid and EV variants as well. The available 3.5-liter PowerBoost™ hybrid engine provides the best towing capacity of any electric Ford vehicle.

With this hybrid engine installed, you can tow up to 12,700 lbs., assuming you also have the available Max Trailer Tow package. Without that package, the Ford F-150 is still rated for up to 11,100 lb of towing with the PowerBoost™ engine.

Finally, for full electric towing, there’s the F-150 Lightning. Thanks to its dual electric motors and excellent capability, it has a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs.

Ford Explorer Limited

The Ford Explorer Limited features an available 3.3-liter hybrid V6 engine. This gives you up to 5,000 lbs. of towing power, which is comparable to the model’s other trims.

Ford Escape Series

The Ford Escape line has two hybrid vehicles: the Ford Escape ST-Line Elite Hybrid and the Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid. Whether you go for the hybrid or PHEV variant, the SUV is rated for up to 1,500 lbs. of towing.
