It's good to note that the capacity is "up to" 6000 pounds, since it's never as simple as one number, but the Tahoe is a a capable vehicle and an Escape 17' is a lot less than 6000 pounds. To check out the details, I suggest the owner's manual and the hybrid-specific information in the Two-Mode Hybrid owner's manual.

Wow! What a wonderful solution. An extremely capable vehicle, and without a big gas mileage penalty.
