Here's another testimonial for ford edge towing. I own a 2013 Edge SE with the 3.5l engine and 2WD. I added a hitch rated for 4000 lbs and tongue wt of 350 lbs or 400 lbs with a WDH. Added the 7 pin plug and the kit to power it. I also installed a trailer brake controller. I swapped out the radiator for the towing unit which has the 1" core replacing the old 5/8" core. last I installed a "doggle" which sends the ECM information to my phone with a Torque app. I tow a 2019 R-Pod 179 that I had weighed at a gravel yard with all camping supplies, empty tanks but no food or clothing. The trailer weighed 3,000 lbs with 350 lbs tongue weight. That's 2,650 on the trailer axle. I have towed the trailer about 5,000 mi. Longest trip was MI to SW Texas. I run about 65 on freeways. The sway bar is a help above 55. I have experienced mountain driving with no problems. Power is never a problem. I have real time monitoring and engine temp is in the 200 to 220 range with the trans at about 200 to 215. I run synthetic oil which can handle much higher temps. Every other oil change I drop and replace 5 qts of trans fluid and it always comes out pretty pink without any odor to indicate excess heat. I get 12.5 -14.5 mpg. Wind has a large effect. So that's my experience and I am well pleased. I have decided to add air bags to see if it reduces the "sway". The car and trailer sit pretty level as it is and the sway is minimal with the bar. I have read posts of others that claim air bags have pretty much eliminated their sway. Previously I pulled a 16' Scamp and hardly knew it was there. I hope the air bags will put me closer to that experience. The Edge is an excellent tow vehicle within it's limits.
