It's not a standard feature on the Escapes sold in the US. For places like Minnesota, the dealer usually installs it on all of their vehicles.

Aww damn I was wanting to have a factory heater block

Different part numbers maybe but a 2010 will certainly have an equivalent set up...they sell a lot of Escapes up here in the frozen north..we need our block heaters when the temps drop to -40C :yes:

If yours does not have one ask your dealer to look up the part numbers and ship one in. A year or two back I had a 2007 Mustang which was a California car and did not have a block heater installed...brand new from the dealer the parts and installation cost about $200...may give an idea of what it may cost for the E.

Here's a how-to for the 2009-2011 4-cylinders. The V6 will have the freeze plug in a different location.

The block heater on my 2006 Hybrid Escape draws 400 watts, and the heater in the hybrid battery draws 80W. I have the factory split harness AC wiring harness pictured.
Block heater faces the firewall, i can feel it with my hand and disconnect the wiring plug.
My 16 year old hybrid battery was struggling to give any assist in the recent -30C cold snap, but it started ol' Arthur Dent ok. Gas engine was much louder than usual in the bitter cold but it got me there n back, and is 4x4 and never gets stuck in our big Canadian snow drifts... can park it anywhere

The 2005 'Gandalf the Grey" FWD hybrid is still putting along although the front wheels still spin excessively on icy starts (even with new premium ice winter tires) which i attribute to high electric torque and drive-by-wire and traction control that isn't aware of icy starts, so it's very difficult to feather the gas just right, believe me I've driven all sorts of old vehicles over 40 years in these winter conditions and this one rivals a 60's RWD car for icy starts...
