The Ford Escape proves to be a great SUV, with its base engine delivering solid gas mileage and the optional turbo-four providing lively acceleration. Its cabin is both comfortable and spacious, with features like SYNC 3 making it more intuitive. It also comes with a lot of tech and driver aids. Despite not having the roomiest cargo area in its class, it does provide adequate storage for small SUVs. The only issue is that it could use a little more refinement and dynamism in terms of its driving characteristics.
The 2022 Escape offers a selection of powertrains, commencing with a 181-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder motor which is available as either front- or all-wheel drive. This engine, although somewhat rough and unfinished, delivered adequate speed and propelled an all-wheel-drive Escape SE to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds. A more attractive option might be the 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder model, which proved its capability by going from zero to sixty mph in just 5.7 seconds during the test. Both gasoline engines are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Fuel economy estimates for the 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder model with front-wheel drive are the best. With AWD, it gets 26 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 28 mpg combined; it’s rated for 27 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 30 mpg combined.
