The SE trim already gives you a huge amount of towing capability. With 1,500 pounds of towing capability, there’s a lot that the Ford Edge can handle including jet skis, snowmobiles, utility trailers, and more.

This same towing capability comes standard on the SEL and Titanium trims as well. If you need more towing on these two trims though, you can improve it with options. Find out what options you need below.

Max towing capacity for the Ford Edge
Both the SEL and the Titanium trims are available with a 3.5-liter V6 engine, and with its power, these two trims can actually tow up to 3,500 pounds. That’s over twice what the Edge can tow with standard equipment, and it’s all available from the factory.

Is the Ford Edge available with a factory-installed hitch?
You have the power, but what about the equipment? Luckily both the SEL and the Titanium trims are available with a factory-factory installed hitch. It comes with the Class II Trailer Tow Package, and it only adds $435 to the MSRP.

This package is only available on the SEL and Titanium, but you can get it with either the 2.0-liter EcoBoost or the 3.5-liter V6, though only the latter option will give you the 3,500 pounds of towing capacity.

How much can the Edge Sport tow?
The Ford Edge Sport is an impressive trim in itself, but it comes with a different engine than the rest of the Edge lineup. Even though the Edge Sport has a more powerful engine than other engines in the lineup, this particular engine isn’t designed for towing. As such the towing capacity for the Edge Sport is reduced to a still impressive 2,000 pounds. The Class II Trailer Tow Package is also not available with this trim.
