21. Ford Escape
2021 Sales: 85,492
Vs. 2020: 0.8%
At one time this small 5-seat crossover from Ford had been the best-selling American-brand SUV; however, sales have declined over the last year with little recovery so far in 2021. Lower, wider and longer than its predecessor, the Escape was all new for the 2020 model year sporting looks that are a significant departure from the previous generation. The front-end styling looks 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.
