2022 Ford Escape Lineup Gets More Expensive On Most Trims

As Ford Authority reported back in September, the Ford Escape – which was completely redesigned for the 2020 model year – will be undergoing a mid-cycle refresh in 2023 before another redesign takes place in 2025. In the meantime, the 2022 Ford Escape is receiving a few small changes as well. That includes a price increase across all trims, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority.

SEL Hybrid $32,465 $32,000 +$465
Titanium Hybrid $35,000 $35,100 -$100

These 2022 Ford Escape pricing changes vary based on trim, but range from a $100 reduction on the front-wheel drive Titanium Hybrid, Titanium PHEV, and all-wheel drive Titanium and Titanium Hybrid to a $465 increase for the front-wheel drive SEL, SE Hybrid, and SE PHEV, as well as the all-wheel drive SE Hybrid and SEL Hybrid. All other trims are receiving a similar price increase of somewhere between $455-$460. These prices do not include Ford’s mandatory $1,245 destination charge.

In Australia, the front-wheel drive 2022 Ford Escape will be trading its multi-link rear suspension for a torsion-beam rear axle setup while all-wheel drive Escapes will retain the existing multi-link suspension. However, as Ford Authority reported back in September, every U.S. market Escape will boast a multi-link rear suspension.

As Ford Authority reported back in August, the 2022 Ford Escape SEL has dropped its standard roof rack side rails, though that feature will now be a standalone option for that trim. Additionally, the 2022 Escape Titanium is dropping its standard B&O Sound System, which will instead be bundled with the Titanium Elite Package.

    It should be LESS expensive and get a major recontenting.

  2. Robert J Wollin

    Whoever developed the aggressive pricing for the Maverick needs to apply that same process to the Escape. I am assuming Ford is making a profit on the Maverick. I hope there is more to that question besides US vs Mexican production.

  3. Alan Calunas

    Pay More, get less.
    Ford is killing the Escape.

  4. Bob

    New, no thank you.
    Bronco-Maverick, you can have them.
    First & last time I bought a NEW car was 1980.
    I will buy USED until the end.

    1. Bruce Edward Pritchard

      A used Bronco or Maverick?

  5. Chris

    That is cheap. Taking the B&O sound system out the Titanium trim and only offering it as part of the Elite package. Thank God that ugly Escape front end is getting a facelift for ’23.

    1. NCEcoBoost

      I agree that the front end redo for ’23 can’t hurt. But the issue remains about the 3-cylinder base engine. Ford scrapped it due to potential customer outcry on the Maverick and it needs to be scrapped on both the Escape and Bronco Sport as well. We can talk about Escape pricing here, but Bronco Sport pricing is even worse, and bordering on atrocious (and the Escape now outsells it consequently). GM is succeeding with the 3 on the Trailblazer and Encore GX because pricing is spot-on (no standard AWD, but still. That engine is much better designed than Ford’s) and time will tell how Nissan fares with one on the ’22 Rogue (prediction: not well).

      1. Chris

        Good analysis. I had forgotten about the little whiney 3 banger in the Escape lower trims. What’s with the all decontenting? Pulling light bulbs out of glovebox and center armrest really saves Ford that much money?

        1. John

          Ford has always had a problem with letting the bean counters make too many decisions. An auto company should be run by engineers and not accountants. Too many instances of de-contenting to save a buck here and there.
