What stock wheel size options are available for the Escape?  Do they offer 20's?

Have the titanium and it has 19's don't know if there are Ford "approved" 20 inch wheels. Wouldn't mess with wheel size too much due to the 4WD. If you put on your spare the 4WD deactivates

I actually would prefer 18 inch wheels for a smoother ride

I have a new Titanium 4wd on order with the 19's.  According to tirerack.com, a 16" alloy wheel from a Taurus will fit, so I'm mounting some up with 215/70/16 studded winter tires.  The 16" tire is actually 6/10" taller than the stock 19", and I'm betting that the computer won't know a thing (they will have new tire pressure sensors).

Would love to see what reaction you get. Remember it's more than height to match the dimensions it's actually the wheel speed sensors I believe that determine if the AWD shuts down or not. A lighter or heavier wheel may affect that. If all are the same it might pass. I've heard of some drivetrain computers actually being programmed for wheel size so you could not mess with them

The new Ford is in the driveway, and while I had the wheels off to add the moulded mud guards, I checked to verify the 16" Taurus wheel fit.  So far, so good, so I'll give another update this winter.

I run 22's with no issues, and rides great!
