With growing concerns about greenhouse gas emissions and the rising cost of gas, many people are switching to more environmentally conscious vehicles. The 2023 Ford Escape redesign has added two new environmentally-conscious trims to the Escape lineup. The 2023 Ford Escape Plug-In Hybrid is the same sporty and versatile compact SUV that Ford Escape fans love, with the added benefit of providing excellent fuel economy. The 2023 Ford Escape PHEV sets the standard for hybrid SUVs and is becoming a popular choice for residents of Chilliwack and Mission, British Columbia residents. Here’s a Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid review where we can closely examine some of the features that make this Ford model a crowd-pleaser.

Power and Performance – The front-wheel-drive 2023 Escape Hybrid SUV is powered by a 2.5-litre iVCT Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine paired with an electronic continuously variable transmission (eCVT). When the electric battery is depleted, the vehicle switches to hybrid mode, using the gasoline engine and electric motor to power the SUV. These motors combined deliver 210 horsepower and provide a smooth and responsive driving experience.

What is the range on the Ford Escape PHEV in all-electric mode? 

The electric motor on the Ford Escape Hybrid gets its energy from a 14.4-kWh lithium-ion battery, which allows for an estimated 60kms in all-electric mode.

How does the Ford Escape Hybrid plug-in battery charge?

The Ford Escape Plug-in Hybrid has a standard 120V convenience cord that can charge the battery in about 10-11 hours. For faster charging, the Escape Plug-in Hybrid comes with a Ford Mobile Charger, which can be used with a 240V outlet and can fully charge the battery in just 3.5 hours. The Escape Hybrid can automatically switch between gas and electric power, making it easy to stay on the move without worrying about range.

What kind of styling and technology is standard in the hybrid Ford Escape 2023?

The 2023 Ford Escape Hybrid is more than just your typical eco-friendly SUV. The 2023 Ford Escape interior is clean and stylish, with lots of front and rear passenger space. A 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 13.5-inch touchscreen display give access to Ford’s SYNC 4 infotainment system. The infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use, allowing you to stay connected while on the road with features like:
