13. Ford Explorer
2022 Sales: 207,673
Vs. 2021: -5.5%
Explorer is one of the few vehicles in America that posted positive gains in 2020, but sales ended up slightly lower for 2021 – a trend that continued into 2022. 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 added two variants to the Explorer lineup — the Hybrid and the ST. The latter boasts a 400-horsepower EcoBoost engine and is responsible for almost 20 percent of all Explorer sales. The SUV features Co-Pilot360 — a suite of advanced safety features that includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection and post-impact braking. Last year Ford added the Explorer Timberline, a new trim level that offers a more rugged overland appearance backed by engineering updates and new equipment to improve off-road performance.
