With some internet searches, is seems like the 2012 Ford Escape requires the MERCON LV Automatic Transmission Fluid, but I haven't found an official source to confirm that. Can anyone provide an official source that says that is or is not correct?

According to page 325 of the Owner's Manual, it uses Mercon LV ATF or equivalent.

I know this to be true because I have an Escape also.

  • Perfect! Just the source I was looking for.

    Also noticed that the dip stick has a label that says to use MERCON LV fluid
