Our Axis tows the C-Max without an issue; hardly notice a difference between it and our Escape (3500lbs).
Having never towed a vehicle I didn't want go overboard on weight. We actually found the Focus used with the tow brace already there. Unfortunately, all the wiring/braking system had been removed. I am very pleased with how ours pulls when towing! I'm not one of those guys that has to keep it floored all the way to the top of the hill. I leave the hot rodding to when I am in my Dakota R/T.
