2022 Ford Escape PHEV for Sale in Hyannis, MA
The streamlined lineup of the 2022 Escape PHEV consists of the SE, SEL, and Titanium trims. Their powertrain consists of a 2.5-liter gasoline engine, an electric motor, a 14.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, and an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT). The total system output is 221 hp, and all Escape PHEVs have front-wheel drive and a drive-mode selector with settings for deep snow/sand, slippery, normal, sport, and eco. The EPA has officially rated the vehicle’s all-electric range at 37 miles, with combined gas/electric fuel economy of 40 miles per gallon.
The standard Level 1 charger (110 volts) will fully juice the battery in about 11 hours. The available Level 2 charger (240 volts) will do the job in 3.5 to 4.5 hours. An Escape PHEV set up with Ford’s Class II Trailer Tow Package can pull as much as 1,500 pounds.
Standard and Optional Features
At the base level, the SE has some good features, starting with automatic climate control (dual zone), keyless entry/ignition, four USB ports, but a lot more can be added through optional packages. Those are the Cold Weather Package (remote start, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated exterior mirrors), the Convenience Package (power liftgate, LED headlights, a keyless entry keypad, a power driver’s seat, and a rear-seat center armrest), and the SE Sport Appearance Package (black exterior accents).
The equipment listed for the Cold Weather and Convenience packages is issued as standard in the SEL, which is also upgraded with fog lights and ActiveX (leather-like material) seats. This trim is eligible for the SEL Technology Package (a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, wireless smartphone charging, position memory for the driver’s seat and exterior mirrors, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster). The Titanium is loaded as expected, receiving rooftop rails, LED fog lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power front passenger’s seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. It also gets most of the features listed for the SEL Technology Package, minus wireless charging and the B&O sound system, which are offered as options. A panoramic sunroof, leather seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a head-up display are optional as well.
Automatic high beams and Ford Co-Pilot360 come standard on all ’22 Escape PHEVs. The included technologies are pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, forward collision warning with dynamic brake support, lane keeping assist, and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert. Buyers of the SE and SEL can elect to upgrade to the Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ Package for adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, lane centering technology, navigation (voice-activated), speed sign recognition, and evasive steering assist. The Titanium gets all of that as standard equipment, with automatic parking assist available as an option.
Connectivity and Infotainment
The SYNC 3 infotainment system comes standard in the SE and SEL, with an 8-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth (for hands-free phone use and audio streaming), an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, an audio system, six speakers, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The SEL and Titanium are eligible to upgrade to the aforementioned B&O sound system with 10 speakers, but the Titanium is the only trim that gets integrated navigation.
