2022 Ford Escape: Power, Efficiency, and Towing

If you want raw power, the greatest fuel economy possible, or some middle ground between the two, the 2022 Ford Escape has you covered. Four engines are on tap, each touting a distinct personality:

  • 1.5L 3-cylinder making 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.0L 4-cylinder making 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.5L hybrid making 200 system net horsepower
  • 2.5L plug-in hybrid making 221 system net horsepower

As you might imagine, the most efficient of these powerplants are the hybrids. The standard hybrid returns an EPA-estimated 44 city/37 highway MPG. The plug-in version allows for a certain range of all-electric travel and registers at 105 combined MPGe according to EPA estimates.

Your engine also plays a role in the towing capacity:

  • 2.5L hybrid and 2.5L plug-hybrid both tow 1,500 pounds
  • 1.5L 3-cylinder tows 2,000 pounds
  • 2.0L 4-cylinder tows 3,500 pounds

2022 Ford Escape: Cargo Room

A proper crossover will have a proper trunk with usable storage room. Ford ensured the 2022 Escape would be able to support your various belongings. Maximum cargo capacity measures 65.4 cubic feet when you put the rear seats down, while the space behind the rear seats measures 37.5 cubic feet.

2022 Ford Escape: Lengthy Trim List

There are a host of 2022 Ford Escape trims. However, it's important to note that certain trims merely change the engine under the hood. The standard trim only comes with the 1.5L 3-cylinder and is called the S.

From there, the remaining trims will alter features, technology, styling, and of course, the engine. So, the next grouping would be the SE, SE Hybrid, and SE Plug-In Hybrid. The rest of the list looks like this:

  • SEL
  • SEL Hybrid
  • SEL Plug-In Hybrid
  • Titanium
  • Titanium Hybrid
  • Titanium Plug-In Hybrid
