I think it is 200 lb, though a quick check on the Escape site would verify.

2017 Escape 5.0 TA (someday soon, I hope )
2015 Ford F150 Lariat 3.5L EcoBoost
2009 Escape 19 (previous)

That is correct, the standard hitch is rated at 200lbs and you can have it upgraded to 350 lbs for an additional $25. That is what I did.

From Escape

The difference between the bike racks is that one is a heavier duty than the other. The 150 lb receiver is $75 and the 350 lb receiver is $100. Difference is $25.
