Make Roof Rack Optional on All Escape Models

By Cl K.

Please consider unbundling the roof rack and rails option from other options so those of us who don't want a sporty vehicle, but do want an Escape with higher end options, can special order the vehicle without the roof rack. It means leaving something off, not adding something new, so would not make the manufacturing process more difficult. This would be great for those of us who need/want a vehicle that can be driven to client meetings without looking like we're going kayaking afterwards.

The roof rack should be deleted entirely when the vehicle has the panoramic roof since it is rated at less that 50 lbs maximum load. Take the cost savings from removing the rack and provide a better wind deflector.
