I'm towing my Escape 19' with a GMC Acadia. Overall, I am pleased with the results. I live on the east coast and most of my towing is around here which the Acadia handles well. (We live around Asheville, so typically have to climb 2500' or so getting home) If I were traveling around the west, with the higher mountains, I would want a more powerful engine. Jumping up from the 19 to the 21 will add some more weight from what i have.

Sorry about that, my morning coffee has not kicked in, so you have seen one already, great. Still, welcome....

Hi Steven, I don't have any first hand experience, as we won't pick up our 21 until April. We plan to pull it with a 2015 Ford Explorer V6 w/Tow package and a 5000 capacity. I know we will be pushing the limits on our rating and expect to be a little underpowered at times, but for the most part, I expect to do fine. The quality of the Escape build, it's weight, ease of towing, and the ability to utilize our primary vehicle were the features that drew us to Escape. I think you'll be fine with your Traverse.
