TST is right. You have to understand the difference between AWD (All Wheel Drive) What your Escape has according to specs)...and 4X4 Four wheel drive. When a wheel speed sensor detects that any wheel is not turning at the speed it should be, for the speed the car is going, it will either put more power to it or take away, even apply brake, depending on the situation. There are no driver controls.
