Best Roof Rack System for a 2022 Ford Escape With a Naked Roof  


What roof rack do you think I should use on my 2022 Ford Escape? It doesn't have any mounts on the roof.


Expert Reply:

For your 2022 Ford Escape I recommend the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711520 with the Evo Clamp Feet # TH710501 and Fit Kit # TH36RV for your naked roof. I find this system is best as having the WingBar crossbars will not create as much wind noise as other systems and the dual rubber strips that cover the T-slot allow you to easily add accessories while keeping out debris. I have linked an installation video below that was performed on a different Escape so you can see what is involved in this installation.

I do recommend getting the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450800 with 8 cylinders. Four of the cylinders will be used on the Evo Feet to ensure that your roof rack stays on your Escape. The other 4 cylinders can be used for your Thule accessories that you will use with the roof rack but can also replace any cylinders that may become damaged on your roof rack.

The Cross Bars use the T-Track mounting system which is great for securing your accessories like the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 as you do not want all your mounts disappearing while you are out enjoying your activities.
