2022 Ford Escape PHEV for Sale in Wilbraham, MA
Trim and Power Source
Ford offers a trio of trim levels for the 2022 Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid: SE, SEL, and Titanium. A 2.5-liter gasoline engine, an electric motor, and a rechargeable battery make up their powertrain. The transmission is an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT), and a front-wheel drivetrain is the rule. The Escape PHEV’s total system output is 221 hp; as mentioned, it can travel about 37 miles solely on electricity (it returns 40 mpg in combined gas/electric power).
With the standard 110-volt Level 1 charger, a full charge can be achieved in 10 to 11 hours; with a 240-volt Level 2 charger, the charging time drops to the vicinity of 3.5 to 4.5 hours. If you plan on pulling some equipment, the SEL and Titanium are eligible for the optional Class II Trailer Tow Package, which will enable the Escape PHEV to pull a maximum of 1,500 pounds.
Standard and Available Features
The entry-level SE is generously equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, four USB ports, front and rear skid plates, keyless entry and ignition, selectable drive modes (deep snow/sand, slippery, normal, sport, and eco), and a second-row seat that splits 60/40. Buyers of this trim can elect any of three noteworthy packages to customize the comfort level of their Escape PHEV. The Cold Weather Package is great for New Englanders, as it issues remote start, heated side mirrors, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. The Convenience Package supplies LED headlights, a keyless entry keypad, a power liftgate, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a rear-seat center armrest, and the SE Sport Appearance Package distinguishes this trim with black exterior accents.
The contents of the Cold Weather and Convenience packages come standard in the SEL, along with fog lights and ActiveX (faux leather) seats. The optional SEL Technology Package contains a hands-free liftgate, a lavish 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen (B&O) audio system, a wireless smartphone charger, position memory for the side mirrors and driver’s seat, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. The top-end Titanium adds most of the features from the SEL Technology Package, except for the wireless charger and deluxe sound system (they can be ordered as options, though). Aside from that, the Titanium gets LED fog lights, rain-sensing wipers, roof rails, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. A panoramic sunroof, leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a head-up display are all available.
Advanced Safety Features
Ford has made its safety-enhancing Co-Pilot360 bundle of driver-assist features standard across the board. It consists of forward collision warning with dynamic brake support, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Although they’re not part of Ford Co-Pilot360, automatic high beams are standard as well. The more advanced Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ Package is available for the SE and SEL to add adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, voice-activated navigation, speed sign recognition, lane centering, and evasive steering assist. Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ is standard in the Titanium, and automatic parking assist is optional.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The ’22 Escape Plug-In Hybrid receives Ford’s well-rounded SYNC 3 infotainment system. In the SE and SEL, this 8-inch touchscreen setup includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system. The SEL and Titanium can be ordered with a 10-speaker B&O sound system; the Titanium is the only trim that comes with integrated navigation.
