2022 Ford Escape PHEV Retail Order Bank Closes July 12th

Following multiple delays stemming from the Kuga PHEV’s stop-sale in Europe due to fires and various supply chain constraints, the Ford Escape PHEV and Lincoln Corsair Grand Touring  finally launched in the U.S. back in September of last year. However, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that 2022 Ford Escape PHEV retail order banks are set to close after tomorrow, July 12th, due to high demand, though dealers will still be able to order the plug-in hybrid for stock. However, production of the electrified crossover will prioritize retail orders made on or prior to July 12th.

This move comes as order banks for the refreshed 2023 Ford Escape are scheduled to open up in September with production following in November, as Ford Authority reported last month. The refreshed crossover will receive a host of changes for the new model year, including revised front and rear exterior styling, an updated cabin with a larger infotainment screen, and the addition of a new ST-Line trim, as Ford Authority recently reported.

The 2023 Ford Escape PHEV leaked online just last week, giving us our first look at the refreshed version of the plug-in hybrid, as well as some info regarding that model, which looks set to carry over largely unchanged from the current-gen model. In the meantime, the 2022 Ford Escape PHEV is powered by the Ford 2.5L I-4 iVCT Atkinson-Cycle engine. The traditional gas powerplant is paired with a permanent magnet synchronous motor and a liquid-cooled, 14.4-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery to produce a combined output of 200 horsepower, which flows to the front wheels through an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT).

When running strictly on gasoline, the Escape PHEV carries an EPA-estimated rating of 41 miles per gallon, or an EPA-estimated all-electric fuel economy rating of 100 MPGe combined, which is best-in-class. The Escape PHEV will travel up to 37 miles on battery power alone, too.

We’ll have more on the Escape PHEV soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Escape news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.

    Someone else can buy Ford Garbage. They refuse to fix the coolant leak problems on past Escapes leaving the owners to foot the bill for new engines. I’ll never be stupid enough to buy or recommend any Ford product. RUN!

    People have had orders for 2022 Ford Escape PHEVs going all the way back to December 2021 yet these back-ordered cars are still not scheduled for production. There is zero chance anybody placing an order on July 12th will get a 2022 Escape PHEV. Once production switches to the 2023 Escape PHEV in October, all those who did not receive their 2022 models will be forced to cancel their existing orders and re-submit new orders for 2023 models. It makes no sense Ford continued to accept orders that it knew it would never fulfill.
