Today, to succeed in the automotive market, you need to have SUVs in your line-up. This is because, over the past few years, SUV sales have been increasing while sedan sales have been decreasing. That’s why Ford has an SUV or crossover for just about every taste and budget.
Ford has a wide range of SUVs and crossovers to choose from. Sizes, features, and powertrains, the American brand has understood that if they want to increase their market share, they have to provide an SUV for everyone.
Below, we are going to show you the lineup of Ford SUVs names in the United States and Europe, since the American automaker sells some models in both regions while others are available in only one of those. ford suvs names
2022 Ford EcoSport, the discontinued crossover
The EcoSport is living on borrowed time in the US since Ford is planning to discontinue this budget crossover this year.
Sales haven’t been good for what once was a solid crossover from the American manufacturer, the Ecosport is still available with a starting price of MSRP $22,040, however, don’t wait for long if you’re planning to grab one.
The 2022 EcoSport is one of the smallest and the most affordable cars in the Ford SUVs and Crossovers line-up, and it comes standard with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 166 hp (168 PS) and 149 lb-ft (202 Nm) of torque, while also featuring an all-wheel drive system.
The small crossover is also available in Europe, with a starting price of around €21,833.
2023 Ford Escape, new looks, more style
The recently face-lifted 2023 Ford Escape is a massive improvement from the old model that was released in 2020, the crossover found a lot of criticism from customers who saw the car as too bland in terms of styling, thankfully, Ford has fixed that with this new face-lift.
The new Escape is more stylized, and features a new front-bumper design, while the interior receives a larger infotainment screen.
There are three engine options for the 2023 Ford Escape, a 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 180 hp (182 PS), a 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 250 (253 PS), and a 2.5-liter hybrid four-cylinder unit with 210 hp (213 PS)
Depending on the trim the Escape is available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, pricing for the Escape starts at an MSRP of $27,500 in the United States, and the crossover is not available in Europe.
2023 Ford Mustang Mach-E, the only EV in the Ford SUVs and Crossovers line-up
The only electric car in Ford’s SUVs and crossovers line-up is the Mustang Mach-E, a direct competitor of the Tesla Model Y, and one of the best electric SUVs that you can get today.
For the entry-level Mach-E, you get a 70 kWh battery with a range of 247 miles (EPA est.) that’s around 400 km of range, and a power output of 266 hp and 317 ft-lbs (430 Nm) of torque.
However, you can opt for the Extender Range Battery version which uses a 91 kWh battery to increase the range to 306 miles (around 490 km). It also increases the power to 290 hp, while the torque remains the same.
Then, there are the eAWD models, the most basic one uses a 70 kWh which gets a reduced range of 224 miles (360 km), and produces 266 hp and 428 ft-lbs (582 Nm) of torque.
Similarly, like the RWD models, the eAWD also comes available with the Extender Range Battery version, which increases the range by using a 91 kWh battery to 290 miles (466 km) and gets a power output of 346 hp and 428 ft-lbs (582 Nm) of torque.
Lastly, there’s the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT, the sportiest version of the electric SUV which uses a 91 kWh battery to get a range of 270 miles (434 km) and produce 480 hp and 600 lb-ft (816 Nm) of torque.
The Mach-E GT is a great option for those who need a fast electric SUV, however, for some, it may not be enough, and that’s why Ford also offers the Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition.
It uses the same battery however it develops 10 miles less of range, (16 km), so it can produce more torque 634 ft-lbs (860 Nm) which translates into faster acceleration times, 3,5 seconds from 0-60 (0-96 km/h), 0,2 seconds faster than the standard Mach-E GT.
Prices for the Mach-E start at MSRP $54,975 in the US, and around €63,000 in Europe.
2022 Ford Bronco, an icon reborn
It’s available with either a 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline-four engine that produces 300 hp (304 PS) or with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 unit with 330 hp (335 PS).
There’s also the smallest brother of the Bronco, the 2023 Ford Bronco Sport which starts at $29,215 and brings a similar design in a smaller package.
The Bronco Sport serves as a compact crossover that differentiates itself from the competition by heavily focusing on off-roading capabilities. It offers a 1.5-liter EcoBoost three-cylinder engine rated at 181 hp (184 PS) and 190 lb-ft (257 Nm) of torque.
Thankfully, Ford also offers a more powerful engine, a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that develops 245 hp (248 PS) and 275 lb-ft (372 Nm) of torque.
As of now, the Bronco is only available in the US with an MSRP price of $31,300, however, Ford recently announced that the Bronco will arrive in Europe for the first time at the end of 2023.
But for those who need something more radical, Ford has a solution, enter the Ford Bronco Raptor, an extreme off-roader that packs a 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that can unleash 400 hp (405 PS), it’s also more pricey, $68,500, and it’s only available in the US.
The 2023 Ford Explorer, the mid-size SUV
The Explorer is a great mid-size SUV that even the police use in the US, however it’s due for a refresh, and we say that because in China, it already did, and it looks exceptional.
Where they gave it a new front bumper design, which looks sleeker and more modern, and an interior that departs from the rugged looks to achieve a more luxurious styling.
The problem is that we don’t know if that refreshment will ever arrive in the US, and the reason for it is that Ford already has an answer for those who look for a more luxurious Explorer, the Lincoln Aviator.
The incentive to restyle the Explorer is low as they want to avoid cannibalization. Nevertheless, the 2023 Explorer still looks great and drives well.
The offering of this SUV is quite different between the US and Europe, starting with the US, the entry-level Explorer packs a 2.3L EcoBoost inline-four engine that produces 300 hp and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of torque.
Then there is a hybrid version that mates a 3.3-liter V6 with an electric motor to produce a combined power output of 318 hp and 322 lb-ft (437 Nm) of torque.
And lastly, Ford offers a 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 with 365 hp and 380 lb-ft (515 Nm) of torque, however, there is a tuned version of this engine which is used for the ST trims, among others that can produce 400 hp and 415 lb-ft (563 Nm) of torque.
In Europe, the offering is limited to just one hybrid model which combines a 3.0-liter V6 with an electric motor to produce 450 hp (457 PS) and 608 lb-ft (825 Nm) of torque, which makes it the most powerful hybrid SUV in Ford’s line-up.
Prices for the 2023 Explorer start at $36,760, while in Europe since the only available model is the powerful hybrid one the price starts at €80,496.
2022 Ford Edge, another discontinued car in the US
Another model that seems to be about to disappear is the Ford Edge, according to Ford Authority, the next generation of the SUV has been canceled in North America.
This is another mid-size SUV in the line-up, but this one looks way more outdated than the Explorer, you can tell by its interior and exterior design that it was due to be restyled for a while.
In the engine departments, we get a standard 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that produces 250 hp (253 PS) and 275 lb-ft (373 Nm) of torque, while the sportiest version, the Edge ST, packs a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with 335 hp (340 PS) and 380 lb-ft (515 Nm) of torque.
Prices for the 2022 Edge start at $37,945, and it’s only available in the United States.
2023 Ford Expedition, the only full-size SUV in the line-up
In the latest, mid-term makeover Ford gave the 2023 Expedition new tech, more power, and the new Timberline trim which is focused on off-roading.
The Expedition features a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that pumps out 380 hp and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) of torque, while the more powerful models get a tuned version of the engine which produces 440 hp and 510 lb-ft (691 Nm) of torque.
The Expedition is only available in the United States and its price starts at $53,875.
2023 Ford Puma, the popular European crossover
The Puma is a subcompact crossover that is not available in the US, however, in Europe where it’s one of the most popular crossovers.
This is the smallest SUV from the American brand, and that explains why they don’t sell it in the US since small crossovers don’t sell that well there compared with in Europe.
The Puma comes with a 1.0-liter EcoBoost mild-hybrid engine that you can choose in either 123 hp (125 PS) or 153 hp (155 PS), but for those who are really into electrified tech, Ford offers the Ford Puma ST.
The 2023 Puma ST boasts a 1.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produces 197 HP (200 PS) 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque, and it comes with minor sporty exterior and interior design elements.
The starting price of the 2023 Ford Puma in Europe starts at around €23,449.
2023 Ford Kuga, only available in Europe too
And lastly, the other crossover SUV in the list that’s only sold in Europe, the Ford Kuga.
Following the face-lifted Escape, it’s a matter of time before the Kuga receives one as well since both cars are related.
The Kuga is only available as a hybrid that combines a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an electric motor that produces 187 HP (190 PS).
Pricing for the Kuga starts at €30,000, and like the Puma, it is not available in the United States.
