I have 2020 escape with 13,000 mikes on it. My avg mpg is 82. Been as hi as 140 mpg in most city drive. Check out all mpg on fuelly.com web site. The car is laurel. The PHEV combo does workI placed an order for 2022 escape phev December 1, 2021. No response from Ford on build date. Does anybody know if Ford is building them. I live in Florida which is a desert for PHEVs.
Trade-in value is assessed at purchase time since a lot can happen before delivery. I'll decide what do with my current vehicle based on what the dealership offers and an after-tax judgement of what I could get selling it myself.Question for those of you that have placed an order. Do they value or guarantee your trade in, or do you plan to sell your current vehicle to a private party when it comes in?
Thanks for the info, that makes sense. I saw on a Kia forum that people were getting trade in offers when they ordered their new one, and the dealer honored the price even though they had driven thousands of miles before the new one came in. That seems too good to be true to me.Trade-in value is assessed at purchase time since a lot can happen before delivery.

How does the pricing compare for ordering vs on the lot w/5k over msrp?I am in SoCal. We actually have seen a fair number of PHEVs available on the lot if you want to pay $5000 over MSRP. I am not, so placed an order (no deposit, no commitment) on March 18th. We got a VIN# on March 24th with a production scheduled for the week of April 18.
On April 12th, FoMoCo sent email rescheduling production date to week of April 25.
On April 13th, FoMoCo sent email rescheduling production date to week of May 2.
On April 14th, FoMoCo sent email rescheduling production date to week of May 9.
On April 22nd, FoMoCo sent email rescheduling production date to week of May 16.
Fingers crossed. One thing--if you really follow the chip shortage issue, it does become easier to understand just what a difficult situation this is and how hard it is to rectify in any kind of a rapid manner. Understanding does help make it easier to be patient.
(Dealer has also been quite good about trying to keep us posted with whatever news they can get, to be honest. At this point, still eager if admittedly frustrated. Better situation than those in the area facing even longer waits and even more ridiculous above-MSRP options for Toyota Rav4 PEHVs.)
I read a post where someone supplied a link for “Ford Vehicle Order Tracking”. That particular link was for the U.S. but because I live in Ontario it directed me to the Canadian site. I had to obtain the order number from my dealership and upon entering this and the serial number it popped up showing my Escape was built on April 22nd and was now waiting to be shipped. Stated it should arrive at the dealership between May 01st and May 7th. My dealership received no information on the production date and was not aware that it was being delivered. The last thing my salesman told me on April 29th was that it could take another couple of months.I live in Ontario. Ordered a 2022 Ford Escape hybrid first week of February and received a serial number two weeks later. Have not heard anything else since then. Was told it could take 3 to 6 months. 😏
The local dealer had a 2021 Titanium Ecoboost with the Package and the interior was a nice touch.Congrats. At first I didn't want the PP either, as I wanted the sandstone interior too (black "leather" seats in summer is no fun). Then noticed the PP interior was a mix of Ebony/Sandstone, with most of the seating surfaces sandstone. I really wasn't too impressed with the stock sound system either, and hope the upgraded will be enough (Hopefully no rattling sub either). Parking assist does seem like a bit of a gimmick as well, though I might use it for parallel parking on the rare occasion I do. Just getting a backup camera and the front sensors will make life easier. Heads up display might be interesting.
Huh, just noticed the PP in Canada went up from 2,150 to 2,450, along with the rest of the car. I think I might have gotten my order in before the MSRP jump after all.
