2013-2019 Ford Fusion
When the second-generation Ford Fusion came out for 2013, it stepped up Ford’s game in the competitive midsize sedan segment. It’s a very well-rounded car combining a roomy interior, classy styling and great performance with agile handling and some great engines available. The Fusion is even available with all-wheel drive, which is a great perk for drivers who could use some extra traction on snowy roads. Some very well-equipped used Fusions can be found at this price point. Find a Ford Fusion for sale

2015-2018 Ford Focus
You can get a really nice used Ford Focus with a budget of $20,000. This compact, which is available as a sedan or a hatchback, got a nice face-lift for 2015, which updated the car’s styling and added some extra features like a standard backup camera and some newly available tech like a heated steering wheel, blind spot monitoring and lane-departure warning. For a sporty hot hatch, consider the turbocharged, manual-transmission-only Focus S, which is a thrill to drive while retaining hatchback practicality. Find a Ford Focus for sale
2013-2019 Ford Flex
The midsize crossover segment is home to a lot of ubiquitous vehicles that kind of blend together, but the Ford Flex is one that truly stands out. Part SUV, part station wagon, this boxy crossover has seating for up to seven with a roomy cargo area to boot. It’s available with AWD and a hot twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that delivers fantastic performance making the EcoBoost-equipped Flex kind of a sleeper in high-performance family haulers.

2007-2017 Ford Expedition
The Ford Expedition has a well-earned reputation of being one SUV that can do it all. Whether it’s hauling the kids to soccer practice or towing a boat to the lake with the whole family in tow, the Expedition is a full-size SUV that’s up for anything. This Ford got a big update for 2015 in which its good old fashioned V8 was replaced with a twin-turbo EcoBoost V6, which is actually an improvement in performance over the more traditional V8. Despite being down two cylinders, the V6 brings more than adequate muscle to the Expedition. Find a Ford Expedition for sale
2015-2019 Ford F-150
The current generation of the legendary Ford F-150 came out as a clear class leader when it was introduced for 2015 and now it’s a great value in used Fords. It has a range of powerful engines available, tremendous maximum towing and hauling capabilities, and a roomy, comfortable cabin making it a pretty good family vehicle when equipped with a crew cab. You won’t find anything super luxurious at this price point for the current-generation truck, but you can find a nice F-150 XLT that offers good handling, strong capability, and all of the dependability that Ford trucks are famous for.
