What Roof Rack Do You Recommend For A 2021 Escape Hybrid w/ Moonroof  


Can you recommend a roof rack for a 2021 Ford Escape Hybrid with a moonroof and factory rails?


Expert Reply:

Yes I can. I prefer Yakima racks on roofs with flush rails. My recommended rack will consist of the following:

Yakima JetStream Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 60" Long - Qty 2, part # Y00426,
RidgeLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars - Flush Side Rails - Qty 4, part # Y00145,
RidgeClip Fit Kit for Yakima RidgeLine Roof Rack Towers, part # Y33FR, and the
Yakima Same Key System (SKS) Lock Cores (QTY 4), part # Y07204.

There are a couple of things to keep in mind with this rack. The rack I recommended includes the 60" Yakima JetStream bars you expressed interest in on our website. These bars are 10" longer than necessary, but if you want to carry larger items on your roof, longer crossbars can help. You will have an additional 5" of crossbar length per side, but these bars will not extend further than your side view mirrors. If you do not want the longer crossbars you can replace them with the

Yakima JetStream Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 50" Long - Qty 2, part # Y00425.

These crossbars are 50" in length.

Your roof rack will have a weight limit of 165 lbs. This roof rack has elliptical shaped crossbars. This helps to reduce wind noise and help with fuel efficiency. The t-channels on your rack will accept all channel mounted accessories AND traditional roof rack accessories that clamp to the crossbars. You will also be able to lock this rack to your roof with the Yakima SKS Lock Cores. With regard to your sunroof, you should be able to operate it when you are not carrying items on the rack.

I have included product descriptions and video review links below.
