The 2022 Ford Escape offers several powertrains so that you can choose the one that aligns the best with your needs. These options include:

Besides power, you can choose the trim and the engine based on efficiency. With the 2.5L hybrid engine, you’ll get an EPA-estimated 44 city/37 highway MPG when it’s paired with a front-wheel drivetrain. The plug-in hybrid engine, on the other hand, gives you an EPA-estimated 105 combined MPGe.

With the gas-powered options, you’ll still enjoy an efficient SUV. The 1.5L EcoBoost® achieves a maximum EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG, with the front-wheel drivetrain. The 2.0L EcoBoost® engine offers an EPA-estimated 22 city/31 highway MPG with all-wheel drive.

Bubble of Safety

Ford Escape ParkedEven the best drivers can’t predict what others will do on the road, be it a vehicle coming out of a parking spot as you’re approaching it or another driver flying through a stop sign. The Escape is built with these scenarios in mind. It comes equipped with a range of safety features and technologies to keep you safe when the unexpected happens.

For instance, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking comes standard on the Escape. You’ll also appreciate the Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning, and Dynamic Brake Support to help you stop before colliding with an unexpected object.

Moreover, the available Active Park Assist 2.0 with Park Out Assist turns parking into a no-brainer. You won’t have to worry about hitting the vehicles near you—your Escape will do the parking for you, with ease and accuracy.

Interior Versatility

This small SUV can easily be reconfigured and adjusted to feel much larger and fit more than you thought possible. In total, you’ll have up to 65.4 cubic feet of cargo space to work with when the second-row seats are folded down.

However, you can easily switch up your space when you need to accommodate guests or fit your thrift finds. The 60/40-split folding rear seats with sliding function make it easier to reconfigure on the fly. When the second row is fully upright, you’ll have up to 37.5 cubic feet of room for cargo.
