Hello, I hope I can get some clarifacation here.
I bought a used 2013 Limited AWD in December from Hertz, no tow package installed and there was no option to add it either. and I can't figure out how to get a tow package at a reasonable cost.
Google search only gives me two bits of info:
Ford.com says that the tow package is option 53G which includes a radiator, radiator fan, trailer sway control, hitch and wiring- no pricing available I also found a single post from this site dated 2012, it doesn't really apply anymore as the info is a bit old and pre-2013; in this discussion was the availability of the tow package at $350 -reasonable!
My ford dealer has the hitch only for $250, add a wiring for $75 and it does not include the other items from the 53G option.
Since the Edge has the 4 trim packages, does anyone know if the Limited will already include an upgraded radiator over the base model despite not having a tow package? I am having a hard time finding out what is included in the base vs SEL vs Limited vs Sport; I'm sure that the upgrades are not simply aethetics yah know?
I tried to compare the 2014 models starting from the base trim, a "tow option" is not available. You have to go up two trim levels to get the option. But the only difference that is shown is the added "advanced traction control option."
Looking at ordering each part individually, I'm already up $1000 which seems really excessive to me.
