Has anyone towed with the Ford Edge SE (base model). Ford doesn't offer the tow package in the SE model, but my company doesn't allow us to upgrade to the better packages (SEL, Limited). From what I've been told all the tow package adds is a larger radiator and factory hitch.

I'll be towing a 98 Moomba Mobius (2,100 lbs plus trailer). Am I okay to add my own hitch and tow without the "tow package"?

I think you should be good, you will have sag in the rear suspension, we have one and tow a 3,500 pound boat, and it does the job. We have a AWD Limited model without tow package, we just installed a class 3 hitch. We could make a 400 mile trip with it. The reason we had alot of sag was the hitch is so low on the car when you dont order the tow package because when you order it Ford puts it in the rear bumper.

What's the weight rating with the Edge tow package? If it's the same engine, and similar everything else, I'd say you can tow around that weight. Otherwise, it will tow, but not the greatest

On a seperate note, how do you like your edge in general?

The edge is rated at 2,000 lbs towing capacity without tow package. I think they rate it at 3,500 lbs with tow package. I'm assuming Ford leaves some room for movement on the 2,000 lbs? They have to assume people (like myself) are going to try and push the limit... It is the same engine across all models.

I think its a good car, but I mean we have all the options and stuff so I don't know how to compare to base model. It drives fairly well and its pretty comfterable, although the engine has a tiny bit of loudness to it. Over all a good car. Does your company offer any other ford choices, like the flex, taurus, escape and things or do they only offer edge?

We can get any Ford model we want. I have an 09 Escape now, but am not super thrilled with it. I feel like the Edge gives you more car. Basically the budget they allow is in the range for a loaded escape or base model edge. I haven't really looked into any of the other vehicles to be honest.

If you are really wanting a little more tow power, look at the flex, I dont know how much extra it will cost you but it does tow better than a edge, even though it looks like a hearse. It can tow up to 4,500 pounds, thats probably with tow package and AWD, but still a base model flex will prbably out tow a base model edge.

Frontal Area is the total area in square feet that a moving vehicle and trailer exposes to air resistance.

The chart shows the limitations that must be considered in selecting a vehicle/trailer combination.

Exceeding these limitations may significantly reduce the performance of your towing vehicle. Selecting a

trailer with a low-drag, rounded front design will help optimize performance and fuel economy.

Trailer Hitch Receiver Options

Flex: Included with Class III Trailer Tow Package – Option Code 53G

Note: See chart below for the weight-carrying capacity of this hitch receiver. (This capacity also is

shown on a label affixed to each receiver.)

The vehicle owner is responsible for obtaining the proper hitch ball, ball mounting, and other

appropriate equipment to tow both the trailer and its cargo load.

Hitch Receiver:

Edge 3,500 350

(1) Hitch receivers do not include a hitch ball or ball mounting. The vehicle owner is responsible for obtaining the proper

hitch ball, ball mounting, and other appropriate equipment to tow both the trailer and its cargo load.


If you are selecting a vehicle that will be used for towing, you

should determine the approximate weight of the trailer you intend

to tow, including the weight of any additional cargo and fluids that

you will be carrying in the trailer. Also be sure the vehicle has the

proper optional equipment. Keep in mind that performance can be

severely compromised in hilly terrain when minimum acceptable

powertrain combination is selected. Consider purchasing a vehicle

with a more powerful engine.

BRAKES

Many states require a separate braking system on trailers with a

loaded weight of more than 1,500 pounds. For your safety, Ford Motor

Company recommends that a separate functional brake system be

used on any towed vehicle, including those dolly-towed or towbartowed.

There are several basic types of brake systems designed to

activate trailer brakes:

1. Electronically Controlled Brakes usually provide automatic and

manual control of trailer brakes. They require that the tow vehicle

be equipped with a controlling device and additional wiring for

electrical power. These brakes typically have a control box

installed within reach of the driver and can be applied manually

or automatically.

2. Electric-Over-Hydraulic (EOH) Trailer Brakes are operated by

an electrically powered pump that pressurizes a hydraulic fluid

reservoir built into the trailer’s brake system. Many of the available

EOH trailer brake models are compatible with Ford’s factory

installed, dash-integrated Trailer Brake Controller (TBC).

3. Surge Brakes are independent hydraulic brakes activated by a

master cylinder at the junction of the hitch and trailer tongue. They

are not controlled by the hydraulic fluid in the tow vehicle’s brake

system, and the tow vehicle’s hydraulic system should never be

connected directly to the trailer’s hydraulic system.

Be sure your trailer brakes conform to all applicable state regulations.

See Trailering Tips for additional braking information.

What to knoW before you toW

Before You Buy After You Buy

Before heading out on a trip, check your vehicle’s Owner Guide

for break-in and severe-duty maintenance schedules (do not tow

a trailer until your vehicle has been driven at least 500 miles).

Be sure to have your fully-loaded vehicle (including passengers)

and trailer weighed so as not to exceed critical weight limits. If

any of these limits are exceeded, cargo should be removed from

the vehicle and/or trailer until all weights are within the specified

limits.

TRAILER LAMPS

Make sure the trailer is equipped with lights that conform to all

applicable government regulations. The trailer lighting system should

not be connected directly to the lighting system of the vehicle. See

a local recreational vehicle dealer or rental trailer agency for correct

wiring and relays for the trailer and heavy-duty flashers.

SAFETY CHAINS

• Always use safety chains when towing. Safety chains are used to

retain connection between the towing and towed vehicle in the event

of separation of the trailer coupling or ball

• Use cross chains under the trailer tongue to prevent the tongue from

contacting the ground if a separation occurs. Allow only enough slack

to permit full turning – be sure they do not drag on the pavement

• When using a frame-mounted trailer hitch, attach the safety chains

to the frame-mounted hitch using the recommendations supplied by

the hitch manufacturer

• See your vehicle’s Owner Guide for safety chain attachment

information

• For rental trailers, follow rental agency instructions for hookup of

safety chains

TRAILER WIRING HARNESS

• Some vehicles equipped with a factory-installed Trailer Tow Package

include a trailer wiring harness and a wiring kit

• This kit includes one or more jumper harnesses (to connect to your

trailer wiring connector) and installation instructions

3


Towing a trailer is demanding on your vehicle,

your trailer and your personal driving skills.

Follow some basic rules and you’ll tow more

safely and have a lot more fun.

Weight Distribution

• For optimum handling and braking, the load must

be properly distributed

• Keep center of gravity low for best handling

• Approximately 60% of the allowable cargo weight

should be in the front half of the trailer and 40%

in the rear (within limits of tongue load or king pin

weight)

• Load should be balanced from side-to-side to

optimize handling and tire wear

• Load must be firmly secured to prevent shifting

during cornering or braking, which could result in a

sudden loss of control

Before Starting

• Before setting out on a trip, practice turning,

stopping and backing up your trailer in an area

away from heavy traffic

• Know clearance required for trailer roof

• Check equipment (make a checklist)

Backing

• Back up slowly, with someone spotting near the

rear of the trailer to guide you

• Place one hand at bottom of steering wheel and

move it in the direction you want the trailer to go

• Make small steering inputs – slight movement of

steering wheel results in much greater movement

in rear of trailer

Turning

When turning, be sure to swing wide enough to allow

trailer to avoid curbs and other obstructions.

Braking

• Allow considerably more distance for stopping with

trailer attached

• Remember, the braking system of the tow vehicle is

rated for operation at the GVWR, not GCWR

• If your tow vehicle is a F-150, F-Series Super

Duty ® , or E-Series and your trailer has electric

brakes, the optional Trailer Brake Controller (TBC)

will help assure smooth, effective trailer braking by

automatically proportioning the trailer braking to

that of the towing vehicle

• If your trailer starts to sway, apply brake pedal

gradually. The sliding lever on the TBC should

be used only for manual activation of trailer

brakes when adjusting the gain. Misuse, such

as application during trailer sway, could cause

instability of trailer and/or tow vehicle

Towing On Hills

• Downshift the transmission to assist braking on

steep downgrades and to increase power (reduce

lugging) when climbing hills

• With TorqShift ® transmission, select Tow/Haul Mode

to automatically eliminate unwanted gear search

when going uphill and help control vehicle speed

when going downhill

Trailering Tips

Parking With A Trailer

Whenever possible, vehicles with trailers should not

be parked on a grade. However, if it is necessary,

place wheel chocks under the trailer’s wheels,

following the instructions below.

• Apply the foot service brakes and hold

• Have another person place the wheel chocks under

the trailer wheels on the downgrade side

• Once the chocks are in place, release brake pedal,

making sure the chocks will hold the vehicle and

trailer

• Apply the parking brake

• Shift automatic transmission into Park, or manual

transmission into Reverse

• With 4-wheel drive, make sure the transfer case is

not in Neutral (if applicable)

Starting Out Parked On A Grade

• Apply the foot service brake and hold

• Start the engine with transmission in Park

(automatic) or Neutral (manual)

• Shift the transmission into gear and release the

parking brake

• Release the brake pedal and move the vehicle

uphill to free the chocks

• Apply the brake pedal while another person

retrieves the chocks

Acceleration And Passing

The added weight of the trailer can dramatically

decrease the acceleration of the towing vehicle –

exercise caution.

• When passing a slower vehicle, be sure to allow

extra distance. Remember, the added length of the

trailer must clear the other vehicle before you can

pull back in

• Signal and make your pass on level terrain with

plenty of clearance

• If necessary, downshift for improved acceleration

Driving With An Automatic

Overdrive Transmission

With certain automatic overdrive transmissions,

towing – especially in hilly areas – may cause

excessive shifting between overdrive and the next

lower gear.

• To eliminate this condition and achieve steadier

performance, overdrive can be locked out (see

vehicle Owner Guide)

• If excessive shifting does not occur, use overdrive

to optimize fuel economy

• Overdrive may also be locked out to obtain engine

braking on downgrades

• When available, select Tow/Haul Mode to

automatically eliminate unwanted gear search and

help control vehicle speed when going downhill

Metric Conversion – To obtain information in

centimeters, multiply feet by 30.48; to obtain

information in kilometers, multiply miles by 1.6.

Driving With Speed Control

When driving uphill with a heavy load, significant

speed drops may occur.

• An 8-14 mph speed drop will automatically cancel

speed control

• Temporarily resume manual control through the

vehicle’s accelerator pedal until the terrain levels off

Tire Pressure

• Underinflated tires get hot and may fail, leading to

possible loss of vehicle control

• Overinflated tires may wear unevenly

• Tires should be checked often for conformance to

recommended cold inflation pressures

Spare Tire Use

A conventional full-size spare tire is required for trailer

towing (mini spare tires should not be used; always

replace the spare tire with the road tire as soon as

possible).

On The Road

After about 50 miles, stop in a protected location and

double-check:

Trailer hitch attachment

• Lights and electrical connections

Trailer wheel lug nuts for tightness

• Engine oil – check regularly throughout trip

High Altitude Operation

Gasoline engines lose power by 3-4% per 1,000 ft.

elevation. To maintain performance, reduce GVWs and

GCWs by 2% per 1,000 ft. elevation.

Powertrain/Frontal Area

Considerations

The charts in this Guide show the minimum engine size

needed to move the GCW of tow vehicle and trailer.

• Under certain conditions, however, (e.g., when the

trailer has a large frontal area that adds substantial

air drag or when trailering in hilly or mountainous

terrain) it is wise to choose a larger engine

• Selecting a trailer with a low-drag, rounded front

design will help optimize performance and fuel

economy

The Practical Caravan Ford Edge review

2007-2021 Ford Edge Towing Capacities (With Charts)

Engines Offered: There were really only 4 different types of engines that the Edge came equipped with from 2007-2020. These were the 2.0L EcoBoost I4, the 2.7L EcoBoost V6, the 3.5L V6 and the 3.7L V6.

Each engine had different specs for each year (some were the same) so you really have to take a look at the tables to get a better idea of what model and axle configuration you have to get more solid numbers.

What Decreased Capacity: There were a couple of things that reduced the capacity of the Edge's that was stated in the footnotes on some of the charts. These were limited to the Sport Models and 20" and/or 22" tires, so keep an eye out for that.

Towing Capacity Summarized: The overall towing capacity for the Edge's made from 2007-2020 ranged from 1,500 lbs.-3,500 lbs, depending on the year, engine equipped and the axle configuration. Some models did require a tow package to achieve the higher specs in the charts.
