Visited a Ford dealership on Friday, March 18, 2022. Went back and ordered a 2022 Titanium 2.0 AWD on Saturday, March 19, 2022!

Have been thinking of replacing my wife's 2012 Limited Hybrid for a little while. It is in great condition, aside from the standard rear wheel arch rust.

Visited my closest dealer and also filled out the application through AAA and AARP. Looks like both of those take you to TrueCar.

Closest dealership, I really like the folks there, wants $2k above sticker to place an order.

Two places in the area contacted me about the online submission. I checked the web site for one of the dealerships, and their Escapes are listed at $15k above sticker Yes. $15k! Sales manager at second dealership called a couple of times. Nice conversation, but they wanted, I think, $3k to place an order.

Found an Escape Titanium in NJ near where I used to live and close to my MIL that is optioned as I would like. My local dealer said they could get it in. I also contacted the dealership directly. Saw online that they are asking $2.5k above sticker and other things, like $300 window etching.

Decided to check other dealers in the area, as there are lots, and I mean LOTS, by me. Search my zip code, 01752, to see. Dealer that I have visited in the past states prominently on their web site, "At Acton Ford, you'll never pay above sticker."

Went there Friday. Went back Saturday to place an order!

Great to hear. Thanks!

There are 10 dealers within 20 miles. Colonial is 5 miles from our house. We are in Marlborough, close to the Wayside Inn in Sudbury. Acton Ford is 9 miles. McGovern is 7 miles.

Been to Acton just for simple things like inspections and to pick up a rear wheel speed sensor for my Escape when Colonial didn't have it and searched local dealerships for me.

The Ford ESP on my 2014 Escape is done at the end of the year. Will order a Bronco Sport for my wife through Acton at that time. She has the 2012 Escape now, so she really likes the Bronce Sport.

Mine was sticker with the $1,500 from Ford currently. Any new, additional Ford incentives will be applied at delivery.

Their offer on my wife's Escape as a trade-in a somewhat low, so it will go to Carmax by me in the next couple of months.

Received e-mail from Ford that "order had been confirmed."

Next is "scheduled for production." That should be tomorrow, right? :p

Well, maybe. :)

My new Titanium 2.0 was ordered on November 18, and arrived at the dealer on January 31.

I had considered a hybrid this time, but was told the HEV would take at least 6 months and the PHEV might take 9. Our lease was up in mid-February so I opted for the 2.0 since it would get here quicker. Love the car so far.

I am curious about production since I ordered without the panoramic vista roof. VERY few Titaniums without moonroof when I was configuring cars and searching inventory.

Ice Blue Silver Metallic was a color I was considering. Neat color. Like it a lot. The dealer actually had one for me to see and also a Carbonized Gray Metallic. Went with the gray.

April 25 update below. Interestingly, cost of three items are each $250 higher than the March 19 purchase agreement: base MSRP, Titanium Elite Package, and Destination & Delivery.

Your 2022 Escape Titanium is "In Production".

In Production
Your order is being manufactured at one of our factories. This can take a few days. When you have a moment, tryout the link to your Window Sticker that is now available lower on the page.

That'd be great. Where are you? My salesman said around 45 days from build to when I can pick it up.

Been wondering how many they need to have to make a shipment to the New England region.

Used to volunteer for a golf tournament when it was in the area. Didn't like seeing a bus from the volunteer parking lot pull away just as we were walking up to the drop off point. Meant we would be first on the next bus. Had to wait until it filled some before it would head to the course. 😀
