Chris - I would seriously doubt the bolt patterns would match, so the answer is no. Another option you have is to go to a local hitch installer. I got a better hitch with a 2" receiver for my wife's Escape, than what was offered as a Ford factory installed 1.25", for a lesser cost.

I would bet you can find a nice hitch for less money at any hitch shop, than you would buying it from Ford.
