If you’re looking for the best value for the money, the Escape PHEV Titanium has a low starting price thanks to the EV incentive. It costs much less than the average new vehicle.

The SEL adds standard features like a power liftgate, ActiveX-trimmed seats, and rear parking sensors. It also comes standard with a remote start system, heated steering wheel, and selectable drive modes.

The PHEV Titanium final trim adds front and rear skid plates, rain-sensing wipes, and a universal garage door opener. It also comes with ambient lighting, heated front-row seats, and heated side mirrors. Drivers can enjoy premium features for an affordable price. The plug-in hybrid is one of the few final trim compact SUV models to start under $35K thanks to the tax incentive.

Should you buy a Ford Escape PHEV?

The 2022 Ford Escape PHEV perfectly balances affordability, power, and fuel efficiency. It’s exactly the type of SUV Americans need to consider giving plug-in hybrid electric vehicles a whirl. The Blue Oval has experienced plenty of success with electric vehicle nameplates like the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Ford F-150 Lightning.
