Just buy a kit and plugin to fuse box. It's a 10 min jobHI Evan,
I've got a 2020 Escape SE Sport Hybrid with a Blackvue 750S (2ch) installed.
I've mounted the front camera behind the mirror to the passenger side of the mirror mount, and the rear cam at the top of the rear window within the swiped area of the rear wiper for visibility.
The cable for the rear camera was long enough that I was able to strategically run it along the trim line. I wasn't keen on dropping the headliner on a car I'd only had a few days at that point.
Overall it's a good install. The only real complaint I have is that I'm still using the 12v "cigarette lighter" jack for power and the hybrid powers it off 30 minutes after the engine is powered off. I'm considering a BT125 or home made secondary battery for the camera but I haven't put any effort into it yet. Maybe that'll be one of my spring projects.
I hope this helps!
