Gorgeous looks, important standard safety features, a plethora of gas-powered and electrified powertrains, etc., it’s easy to see why you want to lease a 2022 Ford Escape.
Ford lease deals have always impressed shoppers searching for practical daily drivers with a solid value proposition, and thanks to the Escape, compact crossover lovers also get a sizeable piece of the American automaker’s cake.
This article walks you through the most fuel-efficient Ford Escape, the optional technology package, and why you might want to spend a few extra bucks on it.
About The 2022 Ford Escape SEL And Its Plug-in Hybrid Variant
The Ford Escape is available in ten models with three engines and four different powertrains. The base engine is a 181-hp turbocharged three-cylinder, but shoppers seeking remarkable performance will be attracted to the top-spec 2.0Liter turbocharged four-cylinder that churns out 250-hp & 280 lb-ft. Ford also offers two hybrid powertrains for the Escape, one of which is a plug-in.
While the SEL trim offers the best value in the Escape’s lineup, the plug-in hybrid returns the highest EPA numbers of all the Escape’s powertrains. So shoppers who desire optimum value will likely gravitate towards the SEL plug-in hybrid model.
The SEL plug-in hybrid’s setup comprises a 2.5Liter four-cylinder which partners with one electric motor and a continuously variable transmission. The total power output here is 221-hp and 155 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to its 14.4 kWh battery, the Plug-in hybrid gets an EPA-estimated 38 miles of electric-only driving range and a combined rating of 105-MPGe for the engine & electric motor. It also has an impressive rating of 40-mpg combined when it’s running on gas power alone.
The SEL plug-in hybrid gets all the standard features offered on the regular Escape SEL, including a power liftgate, remote start system, rear parking sensors, synthetic leather seats, 18-inch wheels, etc. However, if you desire enhanced convenience amenities, the Optional Technology Package will certainly make life in your Escape SEL Plug-in Hybrid much more comfortable and convenient.
What Features Are Included In The Technology Package?
Opting for the optional Technology Package adds the following new features to your Escape SEL
- 10-way power driver’s seat
- 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system including subwoofer
- Hands-free, foot-activated liftgate
- 3-inch digital instrument panel
