Ford gave us an all-new Escape for the 2020 model year and then upgraded the lineup with the Escape PHEV for 2021. There have been few significant changes since the all-new model, however, and that doesn’t change for 2022. According to Ford Authority, the automaker made some changes to feature availability in the same way it did for the 2021 car. The 2022 Escape SEL will no longer come standard with roof rails, they will be an option. autonomous. And the formerly standard Bang & Olufsen audio of the Escape Titanium will become a paid option in the Titanium Elite package. Also, citing “sources familiar with the subject”, prices will change across the entire Escape line.
The Escape S and SEL versions increase by $ 455, $ 460 or $ 465. The entry-level front-wheel drive S climbs $ 455 to $ 27,255 after the destination charge of $ 1,245, with the all-wheel rising by the same amount to $ 28,755. FA writes that the Escape Titanium Hybrid and Titanium PHEV are getting more affordable, with their prices dropping by $ 100. The eccentric is the Titanium base. Comparing the prices of the Ford Configurator to the previous MSRP of the entry-level Titanium AWD, it looks like Ford has already cut the price by $ 400; it used to cost $ 37,700, it is now listed at $ 37,300.
The 2022 Escape is expected to give way to a slightly refreshed model for 2023. According to spy snapshots, the front fascia of next year’s car will receive the brunt of the redesign. The headlights are slimmer and don’t recoil as far as the current one. The leading edge of the hood has been brought forward to meet the tops of these headlights. The grille has been moved higher and also joins the edge of the hood. Combined with a grille shape more gathered than the smiley grille, the facelift gives the Escape a taller, nastier design, which should serve it well in a market that favors more rugged crossovers and SUVs. In addition, it will help it integrate with the Mustang Mach-E, as well as the new Evos and Mondeo in other markets.
There could be some feature changes, but we expect the powertrain lineup to be basically unchanged, including turbo three-cylinder, turbo-four, and hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. As of this writing, we’re still waiting for Ford to announce the 2022 Escape and place the model on its configurator, so it can have a short run before its successor arrives.
