2023 Escape

Recommended Posts

The order guide is out but no official pics yet.

The order guide is a CF.  The good news is you can get a hybrid on every trim above base.  Now the bad news.

 

Here are the orderable models (16 to be exact).  Ridiculously complicated.

 

Base 1.5 FWD

Base 1.5 AWD

 

Active 1.5  FWD

Active 1.5 AWD

Active  HEV FWD

Active HEV AWD

 

ST-Line 1.5 FWD

ST-Line 1.5 AWD

ST-Line HEV FWD (no AWD)


ST-Line Select 2.0 AWD

ST-Line Select HEV AWD

 

ST-Line Elite 2.0 AWD

ST-Line Elite HEV AWD


Platinum 2.0 AWD

Platinum HEV FWD

Platinum HEV AWD

Base should be dropped altogether with Active being the fleet model.

Keep Active

Ditch ST-Line And Change ST-Line Select to ST-Line

Drop ST-Line Elite and give ST-Line a luxury package 

Keep Platinum as is

 

Make ST-Line Luxury and Platinum AWD only with 2.0 and HEV.

 

Active and ST-Line get 1.5 or HEV, AWD or FWD.

 

Thats still probably too many options but far better than what they did.

PHEV is its own trim now.  That makes it 17 unless you're ignoring that.  Still no PHEV AWD.  PHEV Premium Package bundles basically everything but the panoramic vista roof and tow package.  PHEV gets a variant on the 20-22 SEL wheels with a darker finish.

 

LED headlamps standard.  "Coast to Coast LED Lightbar" - the bar above the grill presumably - is on ST-Line Elite, Platinum, PHEV Premium Package.

 

Sync 4 8" standard with the 12.3" system Corsair, Europe, etc gets as the upgrade here.  That one puts climate controls at the bottom of the screen.  22 Escape S didn't even get Sync 3 so that's an upgrade.

Order guide shows FHEV is fleet-only on Active.

I can't recall another Ford vehicle who's order guide was released before an official unveiling. We haven't even seen the full interior yet!

thanks for the clarifications on the 2023 PHEV order guide. Most of it is hard for me to decipher and I ma waiting on a call from my dealer to tell me my 2022 Escape PHEV order is scheduled or that I need to order a 2023. The scheduling info says they are still scheduling escapes this week so I guess I wait which puts me further down the list for 2023. I am ready to give up the whole process of trying to get a 2022 tax credit and possibly buy a 2022 or 23 Kia Niro PHEV instead. Looking for a road trip car and am worried the Niro would be too small. Any comparisons between the Escape and the Niro would be welcome.

I forgot PHEV.  

 

Odd that they chose to make PHEV its own trim instead of being available on SE, SEL, and Titanium in 2022, but they probably decided they didn't have enough trims.  Or they thought the rest of the lineup was confusing enough, so they decided to add more confusion. ;)

 

Don't think I want to know what the PHEV Premium Package costs...

At least it’s consistent with Corsair and Aviator GT.

 

I’m guessing it’s still FWD only because they don’t want the added cost of the rear motor like Corsair GT.

Welcome to the forum. You will find lots of discussion on Priority Codes.

 

This is the mechanism for your dealer to advise Ford, regarding which order they would like their unscheduled orders built. For a retail order, the dealer can assign 10 - 19 (inclusive), with the order defaulting to 19. As orders ahead of yours are built, if the dealer manages their Unscheduled Order Bank, your priority number should reduce. After 4 to 6 months, if still Unscheduled, the dealer can contact their Ford Zone Manage to lower it to 1 or 2.

 

To summarise - when Ford is scheduling, if they didn't have any plant/commodity restraints, they will pick the dealer's unscheduled order with the lowest Priority Code for scheduling.

So you are saying that after 6 months of waiting, my dealer could change my 11 priority to 1 or 2? I guess it would be worth asking when I talk to them tomorrow. Does not seem like I got scheduled this week. But with an 11 priority maybe I should not expect to be scheduled this year.

Dealer can't.  They can request it from their zone rep who may or may not approve the request.  Dealers can assign 11-19 for retail orders.

I have heard of plenty of orders filled with a high priority, the issue is what feature are in the build.  From what I have been told, if they are lacking chips for productions it can be pushed for lower priority cars. So the priority other than 1 or 2 really isn't going to improve your chances if the parts are not there to build it.

So bizarre that they have the order guide out and still haven't shown the actual product.

It’s an example of the disorganisation going on within Ford, priorities and people in controlling positions have changed

The strangest part is that they officially unveiled 2023 Corsair in time for NAIAS, yet no word about 2023 Escape and apparently they couldn't even be bothered to bring one to the show.

Farley is also convinced that the $3 billion annual spend on advertising is excessive and is being slashed as part of increasing profits.

How much of that $3 billion USD does it take to put together a simple press release, post some text and pictures online, oh and maybe have a couple units to send around to the auto shows that they're choosing to participate in?

 

Especially since we're just talking marginal cost over what they actually did do for Corsair.

 

Nobody here is asking why Ford isn't spending millions to advertise 2023 Escape on TV, online, and in print.  That's what adds up to your $3 billion.  Not failing to put some text and pictures on the web and show off the vehicle at the shows you're already at.

You can see quite clearly that Ford cares little about Escape, they spent money on the 2023 model but it’s clear they just don’t support it like in the past ……..commodity vehicle?
