Probably misleading because the Escape is silver.

If it did, it'd be a Limited, and it'd have roof rails.

PM with wheel questions.

I'm pretty sure they all were separate unless I'm misunderstanding something.



matchgame90 is right, the '08-'10 the handle is part of the wiper mechanism '11-'12 it's a separate piece

Pulled up Google to confirm, and was surprised.



Wonder why Ford did that.

Probably as a fix for the exploding hatch glass issues that were developing

Mine was a fleet vehicle, and we have 100+ of them at work, all xlt's and the only difference I've seen is they all have drl's.
