The 2022 Ford Escape may be compact but it does have plenty of space to offer for its passengers. You also get loads of space in the cargo area, plus a long list of technologies that you can count on.

The 2022 Subaru Forester also gets some great points with the same attributes as the ones offered by its Ford counterpart. Add to that, all-wheel drive is now standard to the vehicle.

Design & Style

The Ford Escape gets praises for being able to accommodate passengers comfortably inside. With soft touch materials added to its high-quality components, you will appreciate it even more. As promised, this one opens up 37.5 cubic feet of space behind its seats.

One of the things that you will notice in the Subaru Forester is its updated exterior styling. Go inside it, and you will definitely like its roomy cabin too. Behind the third row, there is plenty of space to accommodate up to about 29 cubic feet, much lesser than the space that the Escape initially offers. Carrying up to five passengers, even six-footers will love the comfort that the rear seats bring whenever they move.

Technology & Safety

Basically, the 2022 Ford Escape uses the SYNC infotainment system with a 4.2-inch infotainment display. That said, you have the option to upgrade to the eight-inch touch configuration if you feel the basic setup does not suit your needs. This also features six speakers, multiple USB ports, and a WiFi hot spot in its list of standard equipment. For its driver aids, you get blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, lane keep assist, and lane departure warning.

One of the things that you will appreciate in the Forester when it comes to technologies is the fact that its Starlink infotainment system is easy to master. It has a 6.5-inch touch screen that quickly responds to inputs, and displays sharp graphics. It also has a secondary display found on top of the dashboard, plus it has four speakers, satellite and HD radios, and smartphone integration. Safety wise, its standard driver assistance includes rearview camera, lane centering assist, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, forward automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.


The 2022 Ford Escape is given an inline-three base engine that can rate up to 181 horsepower. It gets 28 mpg and 34 mpg for city and highway driving, respectively in terms of fuel efficiency. For the Forester, it can release up to 182 horsepower for its base four-cylinder engine. It scores only 26/33 in terms of city/highway driving fuel efficiency.

The Bottom Line

The true measure of a great ride is not just based on its appearance, but what else it can offer beyond that. With all the attributes of the 2022 Ford Escape, and its capacity to defeat that of the 2022 Subaru Forester, you will get more than your money's worth.
