2023 Escape Orders & Discussion

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the PHEV ordering glitched has been resolved?

Also, if the order was placed and the DORA populated as 1.5 ST line does the order need to be fixed manually or should all be good now?

Is there any “official” Ford language as to when scheduling and builds may start? Have heard rumors of October 20 ish for scheduling to begin and late November for builds

The WBDO (Web Based Dealer Ordering) system is now configured correctly to accept all 2023 Escape orders, including the PHEV model. You should contact your Dealer to confirm and document that your order specifications are correct. If your order is for a PHEV model, any documentation identifying it as an ST-Line in incorrect.

Scheduling and production information is posted in the 2023 Escape Production Information forum. https://blueovalforums.com/forums/index.php?/topic/74088-2023-escape-production-information/

My dealer had similar issues, as on Tuesday it showed as a 1.5 ST. On Wednesday by 11:30 (Pacific) it was fixed in WBDO, so it is now accepting PHEV orders.

I find it mind-blowing that the vehicle is mostly able to be ordered yet they still have not officially released it. No AWD on the PHEV means I will probably be keeping my Maverick order in that I submitted on the 16th, but this is just bananas that there has been zero word this entire week on it yet the order bank is open. 🤯

Any dealers out there able to post pricing for the trims and options? Particularly the ST line trims...

Each trim and option is priced. I cannot attest to the accuracy.

Awesome find! From what I read about the PHEV, these prices are spot on. Can’t believe the st line elite is the highest priced trim

It looks like they list every model except the PHEV, bummer! 😢

They broke PHEV out into its own model.  Start Over at the top left and then choose "2023 Escape Plug-In Hybrid".

 

Or click this link:  https://www.thayerbg.com/carresearch/TrimsBuildDealer/year_2023/make_Ford/model_Escape Plug-In Hybrid/confid_thayerauto/

 

The source is https://www.thayerbg.com, or Thayer Ford, a dealer in the Toledo, Ohio, area.  As noted the pricing lines up with what's been seen elsewhere.

So I "built" my 22 order using this and it quoted a price about 2000 $ more. But some of the safety options I chose were not available, Does anyone know if they are now automatically included in the base trim or if they were moved to the premium trim?

Which features are you referring to?  You can compare the order guides to see where the features were moved to.

Looking at my original order I thought I had ordered a technology package that added safety features but I was mistaken. So it does not affect my order but it has disappeared.

Are specs available yet for 2023 models?  I'm particularly  interested in external dimensions for the PHEV.  If they've grown much since the 2022 model I'll have to be certain it would fit in my constrained parking space.

No but I wouldn’t expect any changes beyond the front and dash.

It's just a facelift, not a new model.  The front and rear fascias were redesigned, and the interior saw some upgrades.  Mostly just the decorative plastic pieces with minimal changes to the sheetmetal (that's the stuff that costs more to change).  The dimensions are essentially unchanged.  The same length, width, height.  If a 2020-2022 Escape meets your dimension criteria, a 2023+ will as well.

 

Just take a look at a couple of comparison photos below.  It's largely the same vehicle on the outside.

Thank you j2sys!!!  Makes sense and the photos are helpful.   Looks like those side mirrors are the same too.  It's those little things that can get you, but worse case I'll be folding them in a lot.  Off to order very soon!  I like that color.  Is that the Vapor Blue (that in my eyes leans a bit toward green?)
