Ford has been an important part of automotive history for more than a century. Its own history centers around iconic models such as the hot-selling F-150 pickup and the sporty Mustang pony car. The Blue Oval brand recently made the controversial decision to stop producing sedan and hatchback models such as the Focus and the Fusion in favor of SUVs and crossovers. It's now rolling out attractive redesigns of popular SUVs such as the Escape and the Explorer. The Ranger mid-size pickup recently returned to the lineup, but it lacks the refinement found in competitors such as the Honda Ridgeline or the Chevy Colorado.
The legendary Bronco will rejoin Ford's stable of crossovers and SUVs when it hits dealer lots in late 2020.
With a full-size, off-road-ready Bronco imminent, anticipation continues to grow for its more mainstream baby brother, likely called the Ford Bronco Sport.
Despite the EcoSport's intuitive infotainment and around-town drivability, there are bigger and better-driving options in this class.
The EcoSport attempts to give crossover shoppers what they so desperately want: a high seating height, useful towing capacity, and myriad features.
Ranging from adequately equipped base models to the sporting ST, the Edge offers something for everybody.
The Edge's tidy dimensions put it in a sweet spot between the Escape and the Explorer in the Ford SUV lineup.
Graceful exterior styling, a plethora of powertrains, and standard driver-assistance features help the new Escape lead Ford's charge to replace cars with SUVs.
The compact offering in Ford's robust lineup of SUVs is the stylish and agile 2019 Escape, which slots in above the EcoSport and below the Edge.
Its huge interior can be ordered basic or luxe, but the workhorse Expedition falls short of more appealing rivals with similar price tags.
The Expedition and the longer Expedition Max have the cutting-edge tech, towing capacity, and buslike people space that exemplify this competitive class of mega-haulers.
With a composed ride and plentiful cargo space, the Explorer provides a broad lineup of family-friendly SUVs that all excel at their jobs.
On the surface, the Ford Explorer appears to be an upscale SUV, borrowing high-class styling from one of the world's shimmering luxo-utes, the Land Rover Range Rover.
Pickup trucks have morphed into luxury cruise machines, and the 2020 Ford F-150 has not fallen behind the curve.
The 2019 F-150 can be outfitted for every job and every personality, with three cab and bed styles and numerous appearance packages.
The Raptor owns the road, and pretty much anywhere else you drive it, thanks to its big all-terrain tires, lane-filling stance, and widened Ford F-150 body.
With astonishing suspension and a bonkers twin-turbo V-6, the Raptor is unlike any production pickup on the road.
While too much off-road truck for most people, it's hands down the best pickup for pulse-pounding desert running and pure, dumb fun.
Though the Fiesta might be small, it is still mighty fierce.
The Fiesta ST isn't as badass as the die-hard Ford Focus RS, but that makes it all the more lovable, er, fun.
The funky 2019 Flex is Ford's answer to those seeking a modern version of the old-school station wagon.
With myriad powertrain choices and optional all-wheel drive, the Fusion is good at many things but not great at any.
From the workaday SE to the posh Platinum, the 2019 Ford Fusion offers something for everyone.
With a droolworthy design and otherworldly performance, the 2020 GT is one of the most exclusive, expensive, and extraordinary cars that Ford has ever built.
The resurrected Ford GT is a track-focused hypercar that can hang with the best that Europe has to offer.
With a truly livable cabin and excellent performance packages, the 2020 Ford Mustang has evolved into the best all-around muscle car of the 21st century.
Despite a slew of updates to last year's Mustang lineup, Ford continues to improve its popular pony.
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is a powerful, high-strung muscle car designed to rock race tracks while still being at home on the street.
As a track-ready version of the Ford Mustang, the 2019 Shelby GT350 has even more muscular styling and next-level performance.
As the best-performing Mustang ever, the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 blends modern sports-car performance with iconic muscle-car presence.
The 2020 Ford Puma is an appetizing small crossover that serves the horde of SUV-hungry consumers, but the company currently only plans to sell it in Europe.
With a superlative powertrain and a generous list of standard driver-assistance tech, the 2020 Ford Ranger is a desirable choice among mid-size trucks.
The resurrected Ranger returns to the states to claim its share of the popular mid-size-pickup market.
It is all but official that Ford will build the Ranger Raptor, a downsized version of the high-flying, velocity-defying F-150 Raptor.
Ford enhances its 2020 Super Duty lineup with the most powerful engines and highest tow ratings its HD trucks have ever had.
Brutish power and generous payload ratings remain key traits of Ford's heavy-duty trucks, while aluminum construction brings them into the 21st century.
Once a household name, the Ford Taurus is now destined for the great scrap-heap in the sky as 2019 will be its last year on sale.
The nicely packaged Freestyle became the Taurus X for 2008 and received a bolder front-end sheetmetal, an available power liftgate, and one-touch folding second-row seats.
The Transit is a full-size van that impresses with its smooth handling and extensive range of driver-assistance features.
The Ford Transit provides value and versatility for everyone from large families to skilled tradesmen.
With nimble driving characteristics and flexible cabin accommodations, the Transit Connect is a pint-sized van that is incredibly versatile.
Ford no longer makes a minivan or a station wagon, but the Transit Connect combines the best of both worlds in a compact package.
While comfortable and competent, the C-Max's high EPA-estimated fuel-economy numbers are basically fantasy.
The Sport Trac is an Explorer SUV with a pickup bed out back.
The Focus ceased production in 2018, but as a used car it's a great value either as a hatchback or a sedan.
You might miss the exhaust note, but otherwise the Focus Electric is very similar to its gasoline-powered sibling.
All good things must come to an end: The fantastic Ford Focus RS enters its final year of production packed with performance paraphernalia and ready to desecrate a racetrack near you.
The Focus ST satisfies performance fanatics who can't afford the track-ready Focus RS or want more power and practicality than the terrific albeit tiny Ford Fiesta ST.
