I have the 2016 TRD Sport that I picked up March 5th 2016. I added the Sumo springs and have used it to tow my 2014 Aliner popup with no issues. I will be picking up my (new to me) 2013 Escape 19 on Friday. I expect that the Taco will handle that TT just as easily as the weight difference is only a 1000 lbs and still 2000 lbs less the the Taco GVW rating of 6400 lbs. One note for those on the forum that have Tacos from earlier in the year. Get the T-SB0077-16 service bulletin done by your dealer if you are having shifting issues. It is a software fix that made a big difference on my performance. Here is a thread that talks about it.
Love this forum and am so excited to get my Escape!
