2020 Ford SUV Models

Crossovers and SUVs have gradually been replacing sedans as America's go-to vehicle with Ford SUV models leading the way. The Ford SUV lineup consists of six different models, including the EcoSport, Escape, Edge, Explorer, Expedition, and the soon-to-be-released 2021 Mustang Mach-E. All of these CUVs and SUVs have different capabilities so Vern Eide Ford in Mitchell is going to break down the Ford SUV lineup by size to help you find the vehicle that fits your family's needs.

Ford SUVs by Size

While the smaller Ford SUVs offer fuel efficiency and maneuverability, the larger SUVs with 3rd row seating provide enough space and power needed to haul both people and payload. One thing that all of these Ford SUV models have in common is safety. Every CUV and SUV in Ford's lineup can be equipped with an all-wheel drive option and Ford Co-Pilot 360™ driver-assist technologies.

Small Ford SUV Models

2020 Ford EcoSport

The 2020 Ford EcoSport may be a subcompact crossover but it has above-average cargo space for its class, and its small size makes it easy to park and maneuver through town. One Ford EcoSport review from KBB.com said, "The 2020 Ford EcoSport is fun to drive, offers cool features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto plus, unlike the Nissan Kicks or Toyota C-HR, it can be fitted with all-wheel drive." The entry-level 2020 EcoSport S has the following specs:

  • Engine: 1.0L EcoBoost® with Auto Start-Stop Technology
  • Horsepower: 123 @ 6000 rpm
  • EPA-Est. MPG: 27 City / 29 Highway*
  • Seating: 5 Passengers
  • Max Cargo Space: 50 cu. ft.

2020 Ford Escape

After a full redesign for 2020, the 4th generation Escape has five different trim levels and four available powertrains, including two gasoline-only EcoBoost® engines, a hybrid model, and the Escape Plug-In Hybrid. While the Ford Escape is well-known for its sharp handling and comfortable ride, its spacious interior is hard to overlook with sliding 2nd-row seats for maximum versatility. The entry-level 2020 Escape S has the following specs:

  • Engine: 1.5L EcoBoost
  • Horsepower: 181 @ 6000 rpm
  • EPA-Est. MPG: 27 City / 33 Highway*
  • Seating: 5 Passengers
  • Max Cargo Space: 65.4 cu. ft.

2020 Ford Edge

Taking its spot between the Escape and Explorer in the Ford SUV lineup, the 2020 Ford Edge offers four distinct trims and two lively powertrains to choose from, including a turbocharged four-cylinder or the Edge ST's twin-turbo V6 and its class-leading horsepower. This compact crossover comes loaded with standard features like Ford's Co-Pilot 360 suite, dual-zone climate control, 8-inch Sync 3 touchscreen, FordPass Connect™, 10-way power-adjustable driver seat, and reverse-sensing system. The entry-level 2020 Edge SE also has the following specs:

  • Engine: 1.5L EcoBoost®
  • Horsepower: 250 @ 5500 rpm
  • EPA-Est. MPG: 21 City / 29 Highway*
  • Seating: 5 Passengers
  • Max Cargo Space: 73.4 cu. ft.

Ford SUVs with 3rd Row Seating

2020 Ford Explorer

The iconic Explorer is now in its 6th generation and features a complete redesign. Ford's 7-seater SUV is back for the 2020 model year with a longitudinally-mounted engine, unibody construction, and standard rear-wheel drive, similar to the layout found in many luxury SUVs. The 2020 Explorer has tons of standard safety and tech features, an extremely spacious 3-row interior, and three powerful engine choices: a turbocharged four-cylinder, a twin-turbocharged V6, and a hybrid version. The base 2020 Explorer has the following specs:

  • Engine: 2.3L EcoBoost®
  • Horsepower: 300 @ 5500 rpm
  • EPA-Est. MPG: 27 City / 29 Highway*
  • Seating: 7 Passengers
  • Max Cargo Space: 87.8 cu. ft.

2020 Ford Expedition

The 2020 Ford Expedition is an absolute workhorse. This SUV boasts a huge 3-row interior with upscale materials, twin-turbo V6 engine, superior towing capabilities (more than similarly-sized SUVs in its class), and now every Expedition comes standard with Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system and the Ford Co-Pilot 360 suite of driver-assist technologies. For even more space, check out the long-wheelbase Expedition Max. The entry-level 2020 Expedition XLT has the following specs:

  • Engine: 3.5L EcoBoost® V6
  • Horsepower: 370 @ 5000 rpm
  • EPA-Est. MPG: 17 City / 23 Highway*
  • Seating: 8 Passengers
  • Max Cargo Space: 104.6 cu. ft.
