13. 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 steadily declined during 2021 with numbers still down in 2022. That may change with the arrival of a new 2023 Escape. Lower, wider, and longer than its predecessor, the Escape was all new for the 2020 model year sporting an appearance that was a significant departure from the previous generation. The front-end styling looks surprisingly similar to Ford’s discontinued passenger cars, rather than the brand’s SUVs. The Escape is available with a choice of four powerplants; the standard unit is a 3-cylinder 1.5-liter EcoBoost producing 181 horsepower. Ford also brought back the Escape Hybrid, available as a standard hybrid as well as a plug-in version.
