Usually, that's something that needs to be taken care of by a shop that specializes mostly in starters and alternators. I've had shops rebuild my alternators on some vehicles so they where higher output (I had a 60 amp alternator rebuilt to output 100-130amps to run a big stereo in a car once).

You could always check what Visteon, Wagner, and UAP Napa have...sometimes manufacturers will make different versions of the same alternator or other parts for different vehicles. Maybe the alternator from a Lincoln Aviator or Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer or Limited might swap with the Escape's.

Not sure if these suggestions are of much help...
