Simple.......go outside put it in the snow and gas only the rear tires move..2 wheel drive. If it takes off, I would say it is 4 WD..

Shawn, you mean if the rear tires rotate in the ice and snow, it's an AWD. The Escape is a FWD vehicle till the AWD is needed. But to the OP there is no indication of the AWD activating besides you feeling it connecting to the road like Shawn mentioned.

Shannon Currie

Yes...I test drove one and swore it was 2wd. I am under the impression it has a limited slip style drive system. Even looking under it seem odd. Not the standard style looking 4wd at all..The one I drove was a older one also..
