22. Ford Escape
2022 Sales: 137,370
Vs. 2021: -5.5%
At one time this small 5-seat crossover from Ford had been the best-selling American-brand SUV; however, sales declined in 2021 and continued in that direction in 2022. 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 similar to those on Ford’s 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 offers the Escape Hybrid, available as a traditional hybrid as well as a plug-in version.
