Your Espace is a AWD. Not a 4x4.

2 out of 2 people think this is helpful.

I kinda thought that too but I've seen other discussion threads that say it is set type of controlled 4x4. I've tried in the winter to break the tires loose with no success which makes me think awd

The articles you probably read were on the 2001-04 Escapes which had a button on the dash to activate the AWD. In 2005 it was set automatically with no driver input and used the ABS sensors to dedect wheel slippage.
