I have a '03 Escape XLT Sport 4x4 w/power moonroof. It doesn't have lighted vanity mirrors.

Hopefully, we'll get some Escape experts in here that might be able to give you an answer..

Since the company that makes these did not specify one for 2013 escape when I looked; I took a WAG, based on the bolt size, and ordered the one for an '09-'11 F150 (FO2ANTPF).
Since it's made of stainless steel I am hoping it will be able to deal with the small amount of bending I did to it to make it work. Basically the angles needed to be 'opened up' a smidge, but it seems to fit pretty well. Used 3m paint protector tape to hopefully avoid that issue.
Fishing co-ax and power cable thru was not as bad as I imagine it could've been. Removed the under-engine cover thinking that might help, but turns out it really didn't. I wound up doing the job all from above.
I think i'm going to blame computer-aided design for the fact that everything is stacked in so tightly that there's barely enough room for any extras the FMC engineers didn't see fit to put in.
