20. Ford Escape
2021 Sales: 40,990
Vs. 2020: –14.8 %
This small 5-seat crossover from Ford had been the best-selling American-brand SUV for many years, although a sales decline last year continues into 2021 to drop Escape down this list. Lower, wider and longer than its predecessor, the all-new 2020 Escape has looks that are a significant departure from the previous generation. The front end features an all-new grille surprisingly similar to those on Ford’s now discontinued passenger cars, rather than the brand’s SUVs. The Escape is available with a choice of four engines; the standard unit is a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter EcoBoost producing 180 horsepower. Ford also brings back the Escape Hybrid — the new model is available as a standard hybrid as well as a plug-in version.
