Ford Escape: Trailer Sway Control

Ford Escape 2020-2021 Owners Manual / Trailer Sway Control

How Does Trailer Sway Control Work

The system applies the brakes to the individual wheels and reduces engine torque to aid vehicle stability.

If the trailer begins to sway, the stability control lamp flashes and the message Trailer Sway Reduce Speed appears in the information display.

Stop your vehicle as soon as it is safe to do so. Check the vertical weight on the tow ball and trailer load distribution.

Trailer Sway Control Precautions

WARNING: Turning off trailer sway control increases the risk of loss of vehicle control, serious injury or death. Ford does not recommend disabling this feature except in situations where speed reduction may be detrimental (such as hill climbing), the driver has significant trailer towing experience, and can control trailer sway and maintain safe operation.

Note: This feature only activates when significant trailer sway occurs.

Note: This feature does not prevent trailer sway, but reduces it once it begins.

Note: This feature cannot stop all trailers from swaying.

Note: In some cases, if vehicle speed is too high, the system may activate multiple times, gradually reducing vehicle speed.

Switching Trailer Sway Control On and Off

  1. Press Features on the touchscreen.
  2. Press Towing.
  3. Switch Trailer Sway Control on or off.

The system turns on each time you start your vehicle.
