If you're interested in the new Ford Edge, you're probably the type of driver that likes to head off on adventures with a lot of materials, or you simply need to bring more cargo with you. For this reason, it helps to know how much the Ford Edge can really tow. This spacious and stylish midsize SUV offers a lot of room for your cargo, but if you're full and still need to bring more materials, towing the remainder of your cargo is a lot easier than simply making two trips.

At Richmond Ford West, we're going to delve into and explore the towing capacity of the Ford Edge, so if you're considering this midsize SUV, you'll know what its abilities and limitations are.

Ford Edge Engine & Performance Options

To get a better sense of the Ford Edge towing capacity, you'll need to explore the included engines to get a sense of its range of abilities. The Edge includes three engine options, two of which are turbocharged. Each engine offers an impressive output, so if you're currently reviewing your options, you'll want to take note of the different engines and their respective performances.

  • The Twin-Scroll 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder, the base level engine, produces 245 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.
  • The second engine is the 3.5L V6, which can deliver 280 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 pushes the output further to 315 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.

Edge Cargo Space

Before hooking up the hitch and trailering along some of your additional materials, it's important to know what the actual cargo limitations of the vehicle are. The Edge offers a spacious cabin that's enough to hold five passengers, but even some cargo behind the rear seats. However, if you need more room for cargo and you can sacrifice passenger space, folding down the rear seats will allow you to accommodate for larger materials or even more cargo.

  • The Ford Edge offers 39.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • When the rear seats are folded, the Edge cargo area expands to 73.4 cubic feet.

How Much Can the Ford Edge Tow?

Considering that the Edge offers three engine options, its towing capacity ranges depend upon which engine is under the hood. Of course, some of these engine's towing abilities rely on specific towing packages, so you may want to consider that when it's time to tailor your Ford Edge.

  • The base-level 2.0L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder and the 3.5L V6 engines can both tow 3,500 pounds when equipped with the Class II Trailer Tow Package.
  • The 2.7L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder doesn't require a towing package, and its towing capacity is 2,000 pounds.
