Welcome to etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at the Yakima FullTilt Bike Rack here on a 2020 Ford Escape. The Yakima FullTilt Bike Rack is gonna be a hanging style bike rack as you can see, and it can carry up to five bikes, which makes it a fantastic option for the Ford Escape. Now, let's take a look at how it fits on there. From directly behind the Escape, looking at how the rack fits on here, you can see that your back windshield is gonna be pretty much obstructed, especially when you do load all the way up to five bikes on here. Your backup camera and your license plate will have reduced visibility, your third brake light from your cowling should still be visible to the drivers behind you, but with five bikes on here, again, with the tires hanging off to both sides, your taillights will be obstructed. more

Right out the gate, the big things to note for this bike rack are you gonna have a 35-pound weight capacity per cradle. It's not gonna be compatible with Class I hitches for the inch and a quarter. It's only gonna work with the Class II and it's gonna have the frame hook to hold it down inside of the wheel hoops, which is gonna make it incompatible with carbon frame bikes. Taking a look at how the rack sits on the back of the Escape here today, you can see that your back windshield is gonna have most of its visibility retained. more

Welcome to etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at the Swagman Current Bike Rack here on the 2020 Ford Escape. The Swagman Current is uniquely designed to handle electric bikes, so it's gonna have a 60 pound weight capacity per cradle in the two inch by two inch hitches, and it's gonna use a wheel hook design to secure the bike down into the two cradles. The hooks on here are very nice, because they do have such a thick padding. However, because they are hooks that clamp down on the frame, they will make it incompatible with any carbon frame bikes you may have. Looking at how the rack sits on here with a bike loaded up, we can see that our third brake light cowling is still fairly visible to any drivers behind us. more

Hey everyone, Charles here at etrailer, and today we're taking a look at the Hopkins Double Protection Windshield Cover, here on our 2020 Ford Escape. This is gonna do two things. It's going to protect your windshield from the snow during the winter season, and it's also gonna keep your car cool during the hotter months. Installing this thing is super easy. Once you have it on the windshield you are just gonna open your door, and throw this hook and whatever excess flap you have left inside, and do that on both sides. And then make a connection on the inside. more

etrailer Cargo Area Protector Review - 2020 Ford Escape

Howdy everyone, John here, and today we're taking a look at the E-Trailer Cargo Area Protector on our 2020 Ford Escape. Now this is gonna be a great choice if you like to have everything in your back area, cargo area protected, not only if you have your seats up but if you have them down. Now this comes in three sections and this first section is gonna be very useful if you happen to have your seats down, or let's say you just have your back hatch open, you are out going for a run or anything like that, and you wanna just protect the back of your legs and just have a nicer place to sit. It's really good for that. But let's say you're not using that, you can just take it off 'cause it's gonna have these hook and loop straps, and then you can easily just put it away for later. It's also going to protect all of the rest of your cargo area, including the back of your seats, which is really nice. more

These are gonna come in a kit with a 20 inch blade and a 24 inch blade. Let's get them installed. The big point for the Scrubblades is that you're gonna get the two blade design here, so you have the first edge to clear things out of the way and the second edge to really clean things up. This is gonna shine mostly in, like, an off-roading situation, if you drive down gravel roads on the way out of your neighborhood or your house. more

Thule Helium 2 Bike Platform Rack Review - 2020 Ford Escape

Howdy everyone, John here and today we're taking a look at the Thule Helium on our 2020 Ford Escape. This is gonna be a great wheel tire hold for your lighter bikes. So let's take a closer look. It's able to hold by the wheels, so any of your odd shaped frame or your carbon frames are gonna be perfect for this. And in my opinion, whenever it comes to handles for these arms, this is probably one of the best for the wheel hold type. It's going to be a little bit goofy to push down, but overall, once you get it, it's much easier to work with this than some others, like the Inno Tire Hold, which has it down here, so you have to hold onto the arms as you push forward and press the button at the same time. more

Hi everyone, Aidan here with etrailer. Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Saris Freedom on the back of our 2022 Ford Escape. The Saris Freedom is a platform style bike rack. It's gonna hold the bike in these wheel cradles at the bottom and by our frame up top it's gonna be a cradle with a strap that runs around the frame to hold it in place. Any sort of frame contact means we do wanna avoid carbon frame bikes but with the way this slides up and down along the mast independently from the other one and rotates 360 degrees it is gonna be able to adapt to alternative frame bikes. The other great thing about this is that it does support a weight of 60 pounds per bike. more

The SuperClamp is a platform style bike rack that holds the bike in these cradles by the wheels. And then in those cradles, we've got wheel straps up, but primarily we've got two wheel hooks on each tire. So that's gonna create no frame contact on the bike, making it good for carbon frame, alternative frame. And with a 60-pound weight capacity per bike, it's gonna be good for some e-bikes too. more

This is a heavy duty bike rack that can carry your heavy duty bikes. You have a 70 pound weight capacity per bike, so, it's gonna be great for your heavy electric bikes. And we also have an added ramp that you can get additionally to help make your bike loading and unloading a little bit easier. But since it is a front wheel mount this is also gonna be great for your carbon fiber frame bikes, as well as, anything with an odd-shaped frame bike as well.

Begin the install by throwing this on top of your windshield, making sure the straps are facing outwards and that this string with the hook is towards the top of the vehicle. Next thing we're gonna do is take this little pocket and put your mirror inside it. Open the door, stick that hook and excess flap in there. Do that on both sides, and then we're gonna come inside for the final connection. We're gonna take both hooks and hook 'em to each other, and then that is it for the install. more

This is a heavy duty bike rack that's gonna allow you to carry bikes of up to 45 pounds per bike. It is a frame hold, so if you have a carbon frame style bike or anything with a weird shaped frame, this might not be the one for you. But this does have a lot of great value considering its price point because you can tilt it away with the bikes still loaded. And that way we can access our hatch, grab anything we might need, even sit in there and change our shoes. So we have three attachment points keeping your bike on the rack. more

Howdy everyone, John here. And today we're taking a look at the WeatherTech cargo liners here for our 2020 Ford Escape. Now, I always recommend having some kind of protection in the back cargo area, whether that be a cargo liner or some kind of protection gear. You never know what you may have, whether that be your equipment, just general cargo, or if you happen to have some furry friends, you don't wanna get all the hair and debris or any spills that may come with that. Now, this is also why I consider WeatherTech to be a good choice because it's custom fit, and it has these ridges. These ridges are gonna be nice because it's gonna hold not only things like let's say bags, a little bit of a placement better than if it was just a slick plastic. more

Welcome to etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the Titan Chain snow tire chain here on a 2020 Ford Escape. This tire chain is gonna be one of the lighter duty options that we carry here, and that's because it is the roller style, so it's gonna be best suited for lighter snowfall, not necessarily any heavy snowfall, or roads that are mostly compacted ice. Now, if you are driving around on roads that are mostly compacted ice, I highly recommend checking out a square link chain such as the Konig XB16. We put those on here earlier and they fit really well. Now going back into the Titan Chains chains, everything's gonna be made with a manganese nickel alloy, so it's gonna hold up very well against rust and corrosion. more

Welcome to etrailer.com. Today we're taking a look at the Konig XG12 Pro Snow Tire Chains here on the 2020 Ford Escape. These snow tire chains are going to be a great option for the Ford Escape here just because we do have a very tight wheel well and we can make our connections entirely from outside of the tire. And the self tensioning system here on the front, really seals the deal for me, just knowing that as your tire wears down over time, your fitment changes, the snow tire chain's going to be able to adapt to that and keep up with it. Now the chains themselves are going to be a diamond-patterned square link and they're gonna have these little square studs in the center in the pattern, as it goes around, which is going to give you a nice balance between your start and stop as well as your turning, so you're not having to sacrifice one for the other. And the chains themselves are going to be made of a manganese-nickel alloy, which is gonna hold up very well to rust and corrosion. more

They're gonna come in a pair of two with a plastic hard case, which is really nice. A lot of snow tire chains come with like a real chintzy bag, it tends to rip and tear through the off season when you're just keeping it in storage, so I like that it comes with this, that way, when it's time to put the tire chains back for the year, you can put them in this, set them underneath the backseat or in the garage somewhere, and not have to worry about them tearing through. The chains themselves are gonna be made up of manganese nickel alloy, so they will stand up to rust and corrosion. more

I'm gonna go ahead and start by tilting it away, there is a lever back here, you just push that and tilt it away, and now, we can go ahead and grab anything out of our hatch.

Along with that, I do wanna point out that this is frame mounted, so, if you have odd shaped frames, it's a little bit hard to work with. As you can see, even though we have a straight frame, it's still a little bit of a pain to, kind of, get in the right position, and then, also you won't be able to use this on any kind of carbon frame, so that's always something to keep in mind, but, if you happen to have something that's a little bit sturdier and heartier, I think this is gonna be a good choice. more

Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack Review- 2020 Ford Escape- Video

Kuat Transfer V2 Bike Rack Review- 2020 Ford Escape

Hey everyone, Charles here, at etrailer. And today we're taking a look at the Kuat Transfer, 2-Bike Platform Rack, for an inch and a quarter and two inch hitches, on a 2020 Ford Escape. So, this also comes in just a two inch hitch version. And that will allow you to carry 60 pounds per bike. But, for the inch and a quarter and two inch version, that we have here, we're gonna be able to carry up to 40 pounds per bike. So, being a front wheel hold, and nothing's touching the frame, this is gonna be excellent for the carbon frame style bikes, women's step-through bikes or anything with an odd shaped frame. more

Kuat NV 2-0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack Review - 2020 Ford Escape- Video

Kuat NV 2-0 Base 2-Bike Platform Rack Review - 2020 Ford Escape

How's it going Ethan with etrailer here to show you the NV Base 2.0 on the 2020 Ford Escape. So with the NV Base, you have the wheel hook here as your primary point of contact and the strap in the back as your secondary point, so there's no contact with the frame at all, which is great for carbon bikes or alternative frame bikes. So your wheel base here will support you from anywhere up to 50 inches, and the weight capacity is about 60 pounds per bike, so it'll support most of your larger mountain bikes and maybe even some e-bikes. So if you come down here, you can see this pedal that allows you to tilt this back, and that gives you a little bit more room to see if you can't get enough clearance to open your hatch. So as you can see here, plenty of room, no real troubles with that. They go right back down, and then you can come right back around to the front, lift this guy up until you hear a click, and then you should be nice and secure and ready to go. more

WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2020 Ford Escape- Video

WeatherTech Front Floor Mats Review - 2020 Ford Escape

John here, and today, we're gonna be taking a look at the WeatherTech Front Seat Floor Liners for our 2020 Ford Escape. This is gonna be a great choice if you want something that's gonna be a custom fit, gonna be able to keep all of your spills and drips along with any dust, dirt, debris that may be on your shoes away from the sides of your carpet and keeping it somewhere where you can clean it up. Now, floor liners are something that I always recommend a person get, especially whenever it comes to if you've got kids, if you've got furry friends and pets that you wanna take places, or you just happen to be a busy guy that has a lot of dirt and debris showing up on their boots. As you can see here, WeatherTech's one of the best that we can get, it's held right here with this little tab, so you know it's not gonna be moving around too much as it keeps it right there, gonna be a custom fit with our edge, and as you can see, it's almost like a bucket design where it's going to have the sides of the walls up a little bit more, so you're not gonna have to worry about any odd spills that go up onto the side of the carpet, which is something that I always worry about whenever I have any kind of floor liners is that is it going to protect everything, which as you can see here, it's going to do that. Along with the grooves, it's going to keep any liquid that you have in a specific area that's gonna make it easier to clean. And let's say that we have some water in here, some juice, something sticky, I'm gonna just take it out, spray it with a hose, and then I can just take it and put it back in, which makes it very easy for cleanup, especially if you have any kids that just happen to cause a mess whenever you're at home and ready to take care of it. more

SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack Installation - 2020 Ford Escape

Hey everyone, it's Evangeline here at etrailer. And today, we're gonna be taking a look at how the SeaSucker Monkey Bars fit on a 2020 Ford Escape. So, there are some custom-fit roof racks for your Ford Escape and I highly recommend those since they have more stability and they are more formfitting for your vehicle. But I also understand that maybe those custom-fit roof racks are a little too overwhelming when it comes to the install process, or maybe this is a rental and you just need a quick and easy roof rack to put on there and you're okay with having to take it off at the end of the trip, so that's where the SeaSucker Monkey Bars can come in handy for you. They are vacuum cup mounted, so you don't need to work with any tools, you don't need to use any drills. You just put them on your roof, tighten them down, and now you can put on your roof rack accessories. more

John here and today we're taking a look at the etrailer Bucket Seat Protector for our 2020 Ford Escape. Now this is gonna be a great choice if you are an active person. Let's say you go to the gym, you go trail running. I have one of these for whenever I go out on a trail run or it happens to be just raining really bad whenever I get out of the gym, mostly because it does a really good job at what it's supposed to do and that's supposed to be to protect your seat whenever you've got sweat and water and other kinds of things on you and you still wanna sit and be able to drive around. As you see, we've got some nubs on the bottom here that's going to hold it in place, so whenever you're sitting, you don't have to worry about it moving around and making any kind of movement where you could still get any kind of sweat or anything on your seat. So it is really nice for that. more

WeatherTech 2nd Row Rear Floor Mat Review - 2020 Ford Escape

Howdy everyone, John here, and today we're taking a look at our WeatherTech Second Row Custom Floor Liners on our 2020 Ford Escape. Now, this is gonna be a great choice if you want to protect the inside of your vehicle, especially if there happens to be any spills in the backseat, let's say your kiddos have some drinks, or you have a couple soccer players that get muddy shoes. This is gonna make sure that you protect not only your carpet, but just in general, your investment. Now, after having this in the backseat, I have noticed that while we haven't had a chance to leave it out in the heat to make it a little bit better when it comes to molding around the outside so it's a custom fit, there are a lot of areas that it isn't gripping the best. I haven't had this problem with the front row, so I think the WeatherTech for the front row is great, but I think after you left it out in the heat a little bit or your car got a little warmer, it would be better in this specific situation, 'cause I am not the biggest fan of how it's sitting out like this, or the fact that the lip doesn't go any farther in. Other than that, it's still made out of a really good material. more
