15. Ford Explorer
2021 Sales: 118,241
Vs. 2020: 16.9%
The Ford Explorer continues as a fixture on this best-seller list as it has for almost 30 years. Explorer is one of the few vehicles in America that posted positive gains in 2020, and that trend is continuing for 2021. Ford engineers updated the Explorer for the 2020 model year with an all-new rear-wheel-drive flexible architecture designed to improve ride, handling and overall capability. Ford also added two variants to the Explorer lineup — the Hybrid and the ST; the latter boasts a 400-horseower EcoBoost engine and is responsible for almost 20 percent of total Explorer sales. The Explorer features Co-Pilot360 — a suite of safety features including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist, post-impact braking, automatic high-beam headlights and a rearview camera with a built-in lens washer.
