The ford escapes are bad for the rear diffs going bad so if you end up replacing it make sure you get a used one with really low mileage

Yes, before you replace, try new gear oil. Is it leaking? Low on oil? Was it ever changed? I changed mine to synthetic oil at 60K and it was a tad quieter. But it was a constant roar. Yours is specific to speed. Have it diagnosed before replacing.

A bit late but check your tires. A "feathered" (google it) rear tire or tires will also make a roaring sound.
