Ford is a historic American brand with a long reputation for building sturdy, reliable cars, trucks and SUVs. Ford also has a rich history of performance cars that dominate both the track and the street. If you have a used car budget of $15,000, you have a wide variety of Ford models available that can be the perfect fit for your budget and your lifestyle.

Here are eight great used Fords you can find on Autotrader under $15,000 for 2020.

2013-2017 Ford C-Max Energi

2013-2017 Ford C-Max Energi

Ford might not be the most famous hybrid brand in the car industry, but the Ford C-Max Energi is a respectable plug-in hybrid compact hatchback. With a fully charged battery, the C-Max Energi has an all-electric range of 20 miles and returns a combined fuel economy rating of 39 miles per gallon with a dead hybrid battery. That makes the C-Max Energi a great hatchback for urban commuting drivers trying to reduce their carbon footprint or just trying to save a few bucks on gas. Find a Ford C-MAX for sale

2013-2019 Ford Escape

2013-2019 Ford Escape

The Ford Escape is all-new for 2020, and its previous generation that was introduced in 2013 and refreshed in 2017 is an excellent value in used compact crossover SUVs. The Escape is just-right-sized with roomy seating space, and it has one of the bigger cargo holds in its class while still being small enough to drive like a compact car. The Escape offers a lot of variety under the hood with a base 4-cylinder engine that's upgradable to two different turbocharged engines: one that's tuned for better fuel economy and a bigger one that's more performance-oriented. Find a Ford Escape for sale

2007-2014 Ford Expedition

2007-2014 Ford Expedition

Drivers looking for a plus-size SUV with real truck-like capabilities and a family-friendly interior without breaking the bank should look no further than a used Ford Expedition. Yes, the current Expedition that came out in 2018 is outstanding, but there's no way you'll find one in one piece for less than $15,000 in 2020. The 3rd-generation model has plenty to offer with a standard V8 engine through the 2014 model year with some serious muscle. For one do-it-all SUV that can haul the whole family while towing a boat to the lake without breaking a sweat, the Expedition is hard to beat. Find a Ford Expedition for sale

2011-2015 Ford Explorer

2011-2015 Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer is a trusted name in midsize family SUVs for good reasons. The Explorer combines rugged capabilities with on-road refinement in a way that few competitors can match. The Explorer made the big switch from body-on-frame to a unibody construction starting in 2011, and the result is an excellent, modern three-row crossover. The Explorer earns great safety scores, comes with high-tech interior features and retains great off-road performance when equipped with 4-wheel drive. Find a Ford Explorer for sale

2009-2014 Ford F-150

2009-2014 Ford F-150

There's arguably no truck on the planet more iconic than the Ford F-150. Ford trucks have a long history of sturdy durability and rock-solid reliability. The one to get with a $15,000 budget is the 12th-generation model, which is new enough to be modern but depreciated enough to be affordable. The F-150 got a nice update in 2011 with two new V8 engine options and a new base V6. The powerful 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 also became available, which has quickly become a fan favorite for its outstanding blend of performance, capability and fuel economy. This isn't just a great value in used Fords -- it's one of the best trucks you can get for under $15,000. Find a Ford F-150 for sale

2015-2018 Ford Focus

2015-2018 Ford Focus

The Ford Focus was a great compact car that was gone from the U.S. market too soon when it was discontinued after the 2018 model year. Available as a sedan or a hatchback, the 3rd-generation Focus was introduced in 2012. It got a nice update for 2015 that added a standard backup camera, a refreshed look and more available features, including a heated steering wheel, blind spot monitoring and lane-departure warning. For drivers who need a practical hatchback but have an appetite for a performance car, we strongly recommend the Focus ST hot hatch, which has become a screaming deal on the used market. Find a Ford Focus for sale

2013-2019 Ford Fusion

2013-2019 Ford Fusion

When the second and final generation of the Ford Fusion came out in 2013, it was Ford taking a serious shot at the tough Japanese competitors in midsize sedans. Refreshed in 2017, the Fusion got a slightly revised look, the SYNC 3 infotainment system and two new trims: the luxurious Platinum trim and the performance-oriented Sport model. The Fusion has a roomy, upscale cabin, a strong range of engine options and available all-wheel drive, which was uncommon in this segment up until the last year or two. Find a Ford Fusion for sale


2015-2017 Ford Mustang

The Ford Mustang is an American icon that needs no introduction. Right now is a great time to be shopping for a used Mustang because the current S550 generation of the sports car is creeping below the $15,000 mark on the used market. Don't expect to find any V8-powered GT models in this price range, but if you can find an EcoBoost Mustang coupe or convertible for less than $15,000, you've got yourself an outstanding bargain on a modern performance car. Don't be fooled by the four cylinders under the hood. The turbocharged Mustang makes 300 horsepower while returning 32 mpg on the highway. Find a Ford Mustang for sale
