2022 Ford Escape in Winnipeg | Reserve Yours Today!
Think of an ideal family SUV, and it's likely that something close to the Ford Escape will come to mind. Built to a compact crossover format but adding more power and greater comfort than its rivals, it remains Ford's best-selling vehicle outside of the truck market. The latest 2022 Ford Escape is now available at our Winnipeg dealership, and here are just some of the reasons you should put it at the head of your test drive list.
Choice of Gas Engines
There are two powerful gas engines available in the 2022 Escape lineup. At the entry level, a 1.5L turbo mill makes a healthy 181 horsepower and 191lb-ft of torque, reaching front-wheel or all-wheel drive through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The result is a sprightly performer with reliable acceleration and fuel economy ratings of 8.7L / 100km in the city and 7.1L on the highway.
Drivers looking for a little more zip can upgrade to the optional 2.0L turbo engine which produces a capable 250 horsepower and 280lb-ft, again with an eight-speed automatic transmission but this time with all-wheel drive as standard. This configuration boasts a 0-100kmh acceleration time of less than seven seconds, although as you'd expect the fuel consumption is a little higher at 10.2L in the city and 7.6L on the highway.
Advanced Hybrid Powertrains
But for an excellent balance of power and fuel economy, the 2022 Escape is available in regular and plugin hybrid formats. Pairing a 2.5L four-cylinder gas engine with dual electric motors, both hybrid powertrains have a combined output of 221 horsepower, with a fuel rating as economical as 5.3L / 100km in the city.
Interior and Infotainment
The entry-level Escape S trim has a basic interior that focuses on comfort and affordability rather than the latest in technology. However, every other trim in the lineup offers an advanced 8" touchscreen display to access the infotainment functions, alongside Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and satellite radio as standard. Higher trims add in-built navigation, along with an excellent 12.3" digital instrument cluster nestled behind the steering wheel. The standard sound system is a six-speaker affair, but audio devotees will likely seize the chance of upgrading to a ten-speaker Bang & Olufsen rig that's available at the higher levels of the range.
Safety and Driver Assistance Technology
The Ford Escape has received a five-star safety rating from the NHTSA, as well as a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS for the models boasting LED headlights. The physical safety is backed up by a range of advanced active systems, with standard features including:
- Automatic emergency forward braking.
- Blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Lane keep assist.
- Automatic high beams.
Higher trims also add a parking assist system and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality.
