2022 Ford Escape Titanium Drops Standard B&O Sound System

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.

    Yet MORE decontenting and higher prices at the same time. Just wait for the next recession/depression, Ford. Sales will go into the toidy, fast. Or maybe before. And it’ll be well deserved.

      Yes, the philosophy seems to be “Pay more, get less. Seriously doubt if the ’23 Esca p e will get any better. The Mazda CX5 certainly will.

    This move will likely blow up in Ford’s face since most buyers will likely go to the cheaper SEL with the package that includes the B&O.

    I looked at the new escapes and edges that are the 2021 models they lost tilted headrests and no lumbar on passenger seats newer f150s don’t have tilted headrest either ford is cutting out the comfort in their vehicles so people that have bad backs and necks will have to buy a import that has those features prices are at a high but they eliminate the comfort for those who take long trips in their vehicles and drive a lot!

    i DON’T LIKE THE PRICES EITHER BUT IT WOULD BE NICE IF I COULD GET SOME INFO ON MY 2022 ESCAPE THAT HAS BEEN ORDERED FOR 3 MONTHS GOING ON 4 MONTHS. I’VE CALLED EVERYONE I KNOW TO CALL AND NO ONE HAS ANY INFO OF WHEN IT WILL EVEN BE BUILT. THE DEALERS SAY THEY DON’T KNOW. THE ESCAPE IS BUILT AN HOUR AND HALF AWAY IN LOUISVILLE KY. IF I DON’T HEAR SOMETHING SOON I’M GOING TO GO BUY A FOREIGN CAR. I REALLY WANT MY ESCAPE BUT I’M NOT WAITING FOREVER.

    My 2022 Ford Escape Titanium Hybrid AWD has a bad squeaking noise in the speakers on my B&O stereo system? Is ford doing anything about this problem?
