The Ford Escapes are AWD. Basically it's a FWD vehicle and when one of some of the ABS wheel sensors detect wheel spin, the AWD is activated, moving power one to one or more of the wheels to eliminate wheel spin. It's all computer controlled with no input from the driver. Ford dealers only sell cars, they sometimes don't take the time to research the vehicle. HTH's
