Ford Escape Review 2022

Automobile

By autogos.com

Friendly and unpretentious appearance, a diverse choice of possible powertrains, and driver-assistance systems as standard.

Ford Escape 

$28,660

Overview

Entry-level versions are fairly basic, with an unrefined base engine; hybrid powertrains are expensive.

What's New

Aside from the addition of three additional blue hues to the choices sheet Atlas Blue, Flight Blue, and Iced Blue.

Engine

Featuring a 181-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine and the option of front- or all-wheel drive

Performance

At our test track, we were able to urge an all-wheel-drive Escape SE to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds.

Fuel Economy

It's rated for 27 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined

Interior

The cabin of the Escape, while attractively designed and capacious for both front- and rear-seat occupants, is marred by various low-cost plastic panels.

VERDICT

The Escape, while pleasantly proportioned and quite functional, lacks the polish of class-leading small SUVs.
