This is what I found: "REAR CARGO COVER for 2001-2011 Escapes, Mercury Mariner and Mazda Tribute. (Will Not fit Hybrid)."
Looks like 01-04 are plain looking, and 05-07 have a looped pull handle.
If anyone is able to verify, it would be good to know if late 90's model Explorer cargo covers work. But with the Escapes being so plentiful, there are plenty surer options.
