Asked by Feb 22, 2013 at 11:16 PM about the 2012 Ford Escape XLT

Question type: General

I've just picked up a rental - it is supposed to be 4WD, but how can I confirm that??

4 Answers

The driveshaft will go into a transfer case, to transfer power to the rear wheels as well. no transfer case = two wheel drive.
