the 2005 and newer Escape models have the so called "intelligent system" made by JTEK. It is computer controlled with no driver input or button. It is a front wheel drive system that engages the rear wheels (frequently) as determined by the computer. Torque is sent rearward but not laterally. System returns to FWD system under cruise conditions.
