What Roof Rack do You Recommend for My 2020 Ford Escape with Panoramic Sunroof and Flush Rails?

Question:

Hello, Im trying to determine if there is a roof rack option for the 2020 Ford Escape Titanium with a panoramic sunroof. The rails are present on the vehicle but the manufacturer says with the pano sunroof the weight capacity is zero. Doesnt make sense......is there an aftermarket option? Thanks for your assistance

We definitely have an option for a roof rack for your 2020 Ford Escape Titanium with flush rails and a panoramic sunroof. However, as with all roof racks, it is important to confirm with your Ford owner's manual to make sure that your roof can accommodate the weight you wish to transport.

For a great crossbar system, I recommend the following setup:

- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 53" # TH711420 (black) or # TH711400 (silver)
- Evo Flush Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars - Flush Side Rails # TH710601
- Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet - 6049 # TH96RV
- Thule One-Key Locks # TH450400

With this particular setup, not only you get the benefit of an extremely aerodynamic system, you also receive the unmistakably sleek look of a Thule crossbar system. It is important to note that the height of this setup measures about 3 inches from your roof to the bottom of the crossbar. While Thule does not recommend opening your sunroof with the rack installed, you technically can as long as you have enough height. I recommend measuring the top-most height of your sunroof when it opens to make sure you have enough clearance with the rack. This particular roof rack system provides you with 165 pounds of maximum weight capacity.
