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.
|Trim Level||2022 Ford Escape||2021 Ford Escape||2022 +/-|
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.
