What Does My Transfer Case Do?

A transfer case is the difference between a two-wheel and four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle. Located behind the transmission, it allows you to adjust the gear ratio from two-wheel to 4WD. The transfer case gears work with the help of the driveshaft to transfer power from the transmission to the front and rear axles.

By creating that balance of power between the axles, the 4WD is set in motion, the wheels’ rotational speed is reduced, and they are synchronized to turn at the same speed. This provides the traction needed to get through rugged terrain.

The Ford system uses cameras to watch lane lines. You can choose how you want the system to respond. If the Escape drifts out of its marked path, the steering wheel vibrates to warn the driver to straighten the crossover's trajectory. To assist, the system may apply torque to the appropriate wheels, giving the vehicle a gentle push back into its lane.
