The Best Ford SUVs


The SUV body style is one of the most popular options in Ford’s lineup. They’re known for their toughness and capabilities, plus they offer more cargo space and roomy seating than smaller models.

The Explorer and Edge are two popular choices. Each model has an EcoBoost engine under the hood so that you can get the right power for your driving needs.


The Explorer is a capable SUV with plenty of intelligent features to help you tackle your daily adventures. It has more power and space than ever, plus improved off-road capability thanks to intelligent four-wheel drive.

Safety is a priority with the Explorer, with the Co-Pilot360 suite of crash avoidance tech standards. It includes forward collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Drivers can control various vehicle, information, and entertainment functions with Ford’s SYNC 3 technology interface. It can display a range of touchscreens from 4.2 to 8 inches in size and interact with media players, smartphones, and USB sticks.

In addition to the all-wheel drive and an available Terrain Management System, the Explorer also offers a self-parking system that works in parallel or perpendicular parking spaces. The cargo area is quite roomy, too, with the third row able to be folded and the back seat equipped with a removable floor panel.


A two-row crossover that shares its underpinnings with the Ford Fusion sedan, the Edge is a midsize SUV with plenty of style and technology. Its standard Intelligent All-Wheel Drive keeps it agile and responsive even on rough roads.

A turbocharged two-liter EcoBoost inline-four provides the power for fast acceleration and fuel economy. Step up to the track-inspired Edge ST, and get a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that produces 335 horsepower.

It’s also equipped with a suite of advanced safety features that include Ford Co-Pilot360, which contains forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, as well as blind spot monitoring. It also offers Ford’s active safety suite, which provides for Enhanced Active Park Assist and Evasive Steering Assist.

It’s easy to stay connected inside the Edge with a standard voice-activated SYNC 4 system, which supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Its twelve-inch infotainment screen puts information at your fingertips, and you can also download the FordPass app to lock, unlock, and start your vehicle from anywhere – even while you’re on the go.

Bronco Sport

The Bronco Sport is a compact SUV that combines adventure with utility, which makes it a perfect fit for people who like to go off the beaten path. It also offers plenty of interior room, even with a raised roof that steps up safari-style for more rear headroom.

The Bronco Sport feels a bit more like a truck than a crossover SUV. Its angular cabin design is more upright, with high air vents straddling an 8-inch touchscreen.

Its interior also feels comfortable, especially on long drives. The blend of fabric and soft vinyl on the seats helps keep dirt out and makes them comfy enough for comfort.

The Bronco Sport has many safety features as standard, including Ford CoPilot360 driver assistance technology (adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic warning, lane-keeping assist, and auto high beams). It’s also available with an Assist+ package that adds adaptive cruise control, lane centering assist, evasive steering assist, and speed sign recognition.


If you’re looking for a large, affordable SUV that can handle a heavy load and haul your favorite cargo, the Ford Expedition is the way to go. It has a roomy interior, a powerful drivetrain, and an array of helpful driver-assist features.

Despite its enormous size, the Expedition can be very handy to drive around town and over narrow roads in the mountains. It can also tow heavy trailers, and the rear suspension can adjust for uneven pavement and sharp bends.

The interior of the Expedition gets fancier with each trim and tops out on the Platinum, which is appointed with leather upholstery and massaging front seats. You can even get a Stealth Edition Performance Package, which boasts blacked-out exterior trim and 22-inch wheels.
