Anyone know if the escape was available with the 4cyl. AND awd?
Not that I would be moving parts anytime soon, but I got thinking the other day, sure would be nice to do the AWD focus that SHOULD have been done in the 1st place....

The ZETEC Escape is a dog though. It isn't really a good motor for the little SUV. It only comes with a MTX and that should tell ya how much power the little SUV has.

This would be A LOT of work, while conceviably possibly it would be a lot of work and money and in the end probably wouldnt be worth it all.

You can have it done for a reasonable price but the things is PARTS!!!. well you need a transfer case(1) a new rear axle which you can use a mustang one(2) new rear suspension setup(3)INTERMEDIATE SHAFT.MOST ofall MORE POWER!!! The transfer case the new axle,new suspension and basically all the parts you put on will add more weight so more power such as turbo. This will cost like maybe 3000 or less i not really sure but it will be a bitch to do

My friends mom had a ford escape 03 and it had a auto. It was a fast little suv and it was fun to ride and IT CAN ZOOM!!! It had a zetec

i have heard rumors that its possible one of the volvo variants who will share a platform w/ the next gen focus and mazda whatchamacallit, will feature AWD, i think though it will cost more, this would be an easier fix, id wait and see

In order to use an escape as a doner for an AWD conversion heres all you'd need.

-A ford escape

-A ford focus

-A shop containing, lifts, fabrication, pipe bending, welding, bodywork/finishing work etc.

-A crew of knowledgeable mechanics/engineers to put it all together for you.

No ford doesn't sell an AWD focus. Though there are AWD foci around, most are rally cars or cosworths from what I have seen.

I thought it was gonna be the 300 hp cossie focus that was the concept a while back. And 300hp in a focus is by no means slow.
