Escape 4x4 button/switch

Postby DirtySCAPE - October 13th, 2013, 6:37 pm

Is there any switch or button on any model year Escape for the 4x4? It looks that it is an AWD system that happens automatically. My wife and I had a 04 Tribute back in 04 and it had a button on the dash to LOCK IN the rear. Is there anything like this on the Escapes??
Thanks

The 2008 I drove today didn't have ANY button or switch for 4x4! Only button it had was for traction control on and off.

Is this normal for the later model Escapes?
I'm still looking. Like to have a 2008 or 2009 V6 4x4

The only model year Escapes with a 4x4 switch is the 2001-2004 Escape.
