Serving Beeville, TX

The 2022 and 2023 Ford Escape models are available for viewing at Blake Fulenwider Beeville in Beeville, TX. For four generations, the Ford Escape has been a popular choice for local drivers, and the 2023 model year has brought exciting improvements that enhance its appeal. Read on if you're curious about the differences between the 2022 and 2023 models.


In terms of performance, the 2023 Ford Escape has a modified trim lineup, which includes the base, Active, PHEV, ST-Line, ST-Line Selection, ST-Line Elite, and Platinum. However, the four powertrains offered in the 2022 model remain available for the 2023 model year. The base engine is a 180-horsepower, turbo, 1.5-liter, three-cylinder engine with optional all-wheel drive, while the higher trims offer a turbo 2.0-liter, 250-horsepower engine with standard all-wheel drive. In addition, the 2023 model offers two available powertrains: a 2.5-liter hybrid with a 192-horsepower system and a PHEV with a total of 210 horsepower.


The 2023 Ford Escape has undergone a front-end redesign with a larger grille featuring metallic accents on the sides, a restyled bumper with a metallic strip, and deep-seated air vents. The headlights also have a new U-shaped LED ribbon design topped by a solid LED bar. The back of the vehicle boasts a liftgate spoiler, a molded bumper, and sharp headlights featuring a double-element design.


Inside the cabin, the 2023 model year sees a significant update with the introduction of the new Sync 4 system with a redesigned central display screen. Some features have been reorganized across trim levels. In contrast, others remain the same, such as the 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system, an automated parking system, a panoramic sunroof, a tow package, a wireless charging pad, adaptive cruise control, a navigation system, a surround-view camera, memory settings for the driver's seat, a digital instrument panel, and other equipment.
