Hi! Has anyone tried towing with their 4 cylinder? I know it's capacity is lower than a 6 but I'm just trying to figure out what I can tow for camping trips.

I tow with my 4 cylinder Escape. Of course only 4 cylinders are available for the year of my vehicle...It does well enough up to its rated capacity, I have never knowingly exceeded it, but have done up mountains interstate towing, around town towing, and cross state with lots of wind towing.

I assume you have a first or second gen with the 2.3/2.5, with a max rated towing capacity of 1500 pounds. First gen with the 2.0 Zetec is rated at 1000.

I would assume that your tow capacity would be limited to 1,000 lbs. To determine what Ford says you can safely tow, you can download the Ford RV & Towing Guide for your model year. The site link shown above has towing guides dating back to model year 2004.
