    The compact SUV segment is one of the healthiest in the automotive industry, with dozens of options to satisfy every driving need and budget. The 2022 Ford Escape finds itself at the top of the segment thanks to its versatility–it's an efficient weekday warrior and an adventurous weekend chariot. This versatility only gets better when you discover everything the Escape has to offer and how it continues the Ford legacy.

    Now in its fourth generation, the Escape made its debut in the Ford lineup in 2001 at a time when the demand for compact SUVs was minimal. The Escape showcased Ford's incredible insight in delivering a vehicle that was designed to meet all of life's demands. This first Escape was capable of light, off-road adventures with its available four-wheel-drive and promised exceptional efficiency that made it an ideal commuter vehicle throughout the week. It was everything a driver could ask for in a vehicle, and Ford knew it.

    The Escape attracted drivers to the small SUV segment and, after over two decades, continues to do so. The 2022 Escape embodies the SUV's rich history in the Ford lineup by blending capability and versatility with affordability and practicality. We see this firsthand in the Escape's starting price of $26,010, which gets you behind the wheel of a well-equipped model replete with modern conveniences and cutting-edge technology.* Add in the Escape's hybrid and plug-in hybrid options, and there's no question that the Escape has earned its place as one of the most popular, practical, and affordable models in the segment.

  • Performance and Efficiency

    Turbocharged Options

    With four available powertrains, Ford ensures the 2022 Escape can handle all the demands of your life and the road ahead. The Escape comes standard with Ford's 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The EcoBoost offers a unique balance of power and efficiency thanks to automatic start-stop technology that reduces emissions and fuel consumption by shutting off the engine when the Escape is stopped. When your foot moves from the brake to the accelerator pedal, the engine seamlessly restarts to deliver up to 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque with an average fuel economy of 28 MPG in the city and 34 MPG on the highway.

    The Escape's versatility truly shines when equipped with the 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and the Class II Trailer Tow Package that makes the SUV capable of hauling up to 3,500 pounds. Like the 1.5-liter engine, the 2.0-liter EcoBoost offers the same automatic start-stop technology that optimizes power and efficiency to deliver 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque for quick acceleration and effortless handling. This power doesn't drastically impact the SUV's fuel economy, with the model averaging 22 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway.

    Hybrid Options

    For those who prioritize efficiency, there are two exceptional options in the Escape lineup–the hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. The hybrid 2.5-liter Atkinson-Cycle engine is mated to an electric motor and an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission. Maximizing efficiency, the hybrid powertrain delivers 200 horsepower and 155 lb-ft of torque with an average fuel economy of 44 MPG in the city and 37 MPG on the highway.

    The Escape's plug-in hybrid powertrain is truly impressive and ushers the Escape into a greener, electrified future. The plug-in 2.5-liter Atkinson-Cycle engine delivers 221 horsepower, 155 lb-ft of torque, and is rated for 105 MPGe. As far as plugging in the hybrid, Ford makes it easy with the standard 110-volt Level 1 charger taking under 11 hours to fully charge, while the 240-volt Level 2 charger can charge the Escape in under five hours.

    A High-Tech Experience

    The 2022 Escape is laden with innovative technology that's designed to keep you connected, informed, and focused when you're in the driver's seat. This technology stretches from the Escape's infotainment system and expansive displays to the active and passive safety features that work behind the scenes. Together, these features add outstanding value to the Escape and give you the confidence you need to navigate the road ahead.

    Ford puts all the tools you need within reach, starting with the expansive 8-inch center touchscreen display that's home to Ford's SYNC 3 infotainment system. Through the system, you'll have access to your smartphone via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, navigation, and a host of in-vehicle apps. Tools like Ford+Alexa equip the Escape with a virtual assistant that can make calls, respond to text messages, stream your favorite music, control your smart home devices, schedule appointments, and more with a simple voice command.

    Beyond Infotainment

    Beyond the center display, the Escape makes it easy to keep your eyes on the road with the available head-up display and the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, the latter of which is fully customizable. The head-up display, which is included on the Titanium trim's Elite package, gives you vital information like your speed and mileage in a crisp display on the windshield in front of you. You'll also see incoming calls, navigation cues, and notifications from tools like the Lane-Keeping System and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go.

    Modern conveniences are also plentiful in the Escape and include upgrades like the available wireless charging pad in the center console that makes it easy to keep your device charged and ready to go at all times. Through the center touchscreen display or your smartphone, you'll have more access to the Escape in the palm of your hand via FordPass Connect. The tool equips the Escape with an available 4G LTE WiFi hotspot that can support up to ten devices within 50 feet of the vehicle. This means that you and your passengers are always connected, making the Escape a mobile office and entertainment venue for every mile ahead.

  • Safety and Driver-Assist

    Cutting-Edge Technologies

    Having confidence in the driver's seat is truly priceless, and Ford knows it. That's why you'll find the 2022 Escape is equipped with a vast suite of cutting-edge safety and driver-assist tools that are designed to engineer confidence and peace of mind when you're behind the wheel. You know that your safety is a top priority when you're in the Escape, whether you're navigating your morning commute, picking the kids up from school, running errands in town, or setting out on a weekend getaway with friends.

    The Escape's safety and driver-assist tools are part of Ford's Co-Pilot360 suite and work to enhance visibility and minimize the potential for collision. Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking constantly scans the road ahead and alerts you to potential hazards like vehicles or pedestrians in your path. If you fail to respond and a collision is imminent, the system can engage the brakes automatically and bring the Escape to a controlled stop. If traffic slows quickly and there's little time to react, Evasive Steering Assist provides added steering support to help you maneuver around vehicles or other objects in your path.

    Making Driving Safer

    Ford's Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert adds an extra set of eyes to the Escape. By constantly keeping an eye on your blind spots, the tool makes changing lanes and merging into traffic easier by alerting you to obstacles in your way. Cross-Traffic Alert is especially helpful when you're backing out of a parking space in a busy area, as is the Escape's standard Rear View Camera. Ford takes the guesswork out of parking the Escape with Active Park Assist 2.0, which can locate a parking spot and navigate the SUV into the spot while you control the brakes.

    Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control is designed to make cruising at highway speeds less stressful by improving how we use traditional cruise control. Instead of constantly having to set and reset your cruising speed, the system constantly monitors the flow of traffic ahead and adjusts the Escape's cruising speed as needed. What's truly impressive is that it works in stop-and-go traffic and can effortlessly bring the Escape to a stop and then resume the set speed once it's safe to do so.
