We are upgrading to a 5.0TA and need to sell this wonderful tow vehicle. It is harder to sell this than it was our two Escape trailers (because we are getting an even better Escape trailer!). Our preference would be to sell this great SUV to another Escape Trailer owner!
This will easily tow any Escape trailer up to the 21. We have been towing our Escape 19 and it is wonderful; we average 14.6mpg when towing (over mountain passes included). It has been impeccably maintained (see under-the-hood photo) and is in showroom condition. Toyota no longer makes the V8, so this is a rare vehicle, especially in this condition. We have never had any mechanical (or other) problems with this vehicle; we purchased it new. We get 20-22 mpg when not towing (we don't go over 60mph).
Here are some of the stats:
2008 Sport Edition (no sunroof)
4.7L V8; 260HP, 306 lb-ft. torque
Towing capacity 7,500 lbs.
