After undergoing a complete redesign for the 2020 model year, the 2022 Ford Escape isn’t bringing forth too many changes. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2022 Ford Escape Titanium – which comes standard with Ford’s 2.5L Hybrid drivetrain – is dropping its standard B&O Sound System, which will instead be bundled with the Titanium Elite Package.
The Titanium Elite Package is optional on the Standard Package (400A) and 2.0L AWD Powertrain Package (401A) equipment groups and adds the B&O sound system along with 19-inch Luster Nickel-painted aluminum wheels, silver front and rear skid plates, a chrome five-bar grille with a chrome surround, Active Park Assist 2.0, front and rear embroidered floor mats, HD radio, a head-up display, leather-trimmed seats with mini-perforation, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, and a wireless charging pad.
In addition to the 2022 Ford Escape Titanium, the B&O Sound System is also available on SEL-trimmed models via the Technology Package, which also includes a wireless charging pad, 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a hands-free foot-activated tailgate, and the Memory Package for the driver’s seat and side-view mirrors.
Aside from this change, the 2022 Escape SEL will also drop its standard roof rack side rails, as Ford Authority reported back in August. But while the front-wheel drive 2022 Escape will be trading its multi-link rear suspension for a torsion-beam rear axle setup in Australia, that won’t be the case with the U.S. market Escape. As Ford Authority reported in September, the Escape will be getting a refresh in 2023 ahead of another redesign in 2025.
