Yes - other than the 5.0TA, Escape uses the Torflex #10, which includes the 3500 pound capacity (per pair) hub group, with 5 on 4.50 bolt pattern and electric brakes.
The Cerka diagram looks like some version of the one from the application catalog
from Dexter Axle
, with their version of the parts list with Cerka part numbers. (If looking for parts from other suppliers, use the Dexter part numbers.) Dexter offers some variations, so not all of them are the common configuration (thus the several bolt patterns), but in this case it looks like there's only one stud choice, so that's clear now. Other Dexter hubs have at least a choice of studs versus threaded for bolts, but we know Escape doesn't use those.
