Ford Escape: 4wd or all wheel drive?

The broad delineation between all wheel drive and 4x4 or four wheel drive is whether the car has a low-range function. Typically, 4x4 vehicles will have a low-range mode for serious off-road driving (especially in mud, sand or challenging terrain), while all wheel drive cars and SUVs like the Ford Everest do not offer this mode. Ford Escapes can be purchased in all wheel drive or front wheel drive, so double-check the Escape you're looking at buying is an all wheel drive not a front wheel drive. There are no rear wheel drive Ford Escape models.
