I have a 2008 Escape Hybrid, and the dealership specifically does not include a tow package on that car due to the transmission is different and not able to handle pulling any weight. I would suggest a truck or maybe a non hybrid SUV. I traded in a 2003 Escape XLT V6 4x4 with a sport package that could handle pulling 3500 lbs, if you are interested in a Escape. Avoid the hybrid if you are wanting to tow. That is my advice.

My husband and I considering buying a car next month and came down to two choices in the SUV category. Ford Escape Hybird or a 2010 Toyota 4Runner.
We like the idea of a ford escape that has better gas mileage, smaller and easy to drive.
The 4Runner has more horsepower, larger, better to tow with and excellent in the snow.
Which is a better car to buy

My gosh, you are trying to compare apples to oranges. These are two completely different vehicles. 4Runner is a big tough vehicle and will tow a lot. Escape hybrid is a great lightweight SUV with excellent gas mileage. It will get you most places in the snow as long as you get the 4 wheel drive option.
