11. Ford Escape
2021 Sales: 40,990
Vs. 2020: –14.8%
Ford’s original compact 5-seat crossover, Escape was the best-selling American-brand SUV for many years. Although redesigned for the 2020 model year, Escape sales were down 26 percent in 2020. That trend continues for 2021 with Escape one of only two models in the top 25 with first-quarter 2021 sales lower than 2020. (Note that sales may be impacted by the addition of the similar-size Bronco Sport to the Ford lineup.) The redesigned Ford Escape is lower, wider and longer than its predecessor, with a look quite different from the previous generation. The front end features an all-new grille surprisingly similar to those on the Focus and Fusion passenger cars rather than Ford 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. With the latest generation Escape, Ford also brought back the Escape Hybrid — available as a standard hybrid or as a plug-in.
