Ford is an iconic American brand with a strong reputation for value going back well over a century. Whether you’re in the market for a practical SUV, a rugged pickup truck, an exciting sports car or even a commercial vehicle for your business, you’ll find something in the Ford model range that could be the perfect ride for you. And it could be more affordable than you expected.
Here are the seven most affordable new Fords for 2020.
1. Ford EcoSport — $19,995
The Ford EcoSport is the Blue Oval’s smallest and most affordable SUV offering. It’s also the only new Ford model with a starting MSRP under the $20,000 mark. The EcoSport is an agile subcompact crossover with stylish looks and a city-friendly footprint that makes it easy to maneuver. You can also park it pretty much anywhere. The base S trim has some excellent equipment like two USB ports and a Wi-Fi hotspot, but upgrading to the higher trims gets you extras like the SYNC 3 8-in infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a moonroof and much more.

2. Ford Fusion — $23,170
The Ford Fusion is on its way to discontinuation as Ford shifts its focus more toward SUVs, but it’s still a great buy in 2020. This competitive midsize sedan boasts a smooth ride on the highway yet athletic handling when the road gets curvy. This sporty handling pairs nicely with the Fusion’s lineup of strong engines, which all deliver a satisfying blend of performance and efficiency. The interior is spacious and comfortable, the trunk is enormous and the aesthetics look sharp compared to the blander choices in this segment. Find a Ford Fusion for sale
3. Ford Transit Connect — $24,275
New Fords don’t just consist of cars, trucks and SUVs: There are also some excellent vans in the brand’s lineup. The Ford Transit Connect is a clear class leader in compact commercial vans for a lot of reasons. It’s just the right size for businesses that need a van but don’t need a big, hulking full-size van. The Transit Connect is available as a cargo van for businesses or as a passenger van (starting at $27,020) for families looking for something a little different. With two available wheelbases, two engines and your choice of either a liftgate or barn doors in the back, you can customize your Transit Connect to be perfect for your business.

4. Ford Ranger — $24,410
The Ford Ranger finally returned in 2019 after a long hiatus in the U.S., and we couldn’t be happier to welcome it back to its home turf. The rugged aesthetic of the new Ranger is backed up by its excellent EcoBoost turbocharged engine, which puts up very impressive towing and hauling numbers despite only having four cylinders. The EcoBoost engine is also great on gas, which helps to make this one of the more practical choices in midsize pickups. New for 2020 is the available FX2 off-road package, which is great for playing in the mud. Find a Ford Ranger for sale
5. Ford Escape — $24,885
The Ford Escape is all-new for 2020, and it has shot up toward the top of the competitive compact SUV segment. The stylish new look is just the beginning of what makes the 2020 Escape all-new. It also has a new lineup of engines, a very long list of standard driver-assist technologies and a near-perfect predicted reliability rating from J.D. Power. The Escape has one of the roomiest interiors in this class, with two spacious rows of seats and generous cargo space to boot. If you’re one of the many drivers in the market for a new compact crossover, the new Escape is a must-test-drive SUV. Find a Ford Escape for sale
6. Ford Mustang — $26,670
The Ford Mustang is iconic not only because of its style and performance but because it’s always been one of the best values in performance cars. That reputation holds up as well as ever in 2020. Available as a coupe or convertible (starting at $32,170), the Mustang delivers a balance of everyday comfort, head-turning style and engaging performance all in one exciting car. It also serves up a measure of practicality with a surprisingly roomy trunk in the coupe models. The interior is straightforward and stylish using nice materials and plenty of modern tech features, making the Mustang as good to sit in as it is to look at. Find a Ford Mustang for sale
7. Ford F-150 — $28,745
The legendary Ford F-150 starts below the $30,000 mark and has so much variety in its model range that there is an F-150 for any need, any want and any budget for the American truck driver. Continuing its unrivaled reputation for durability, the F-150 has a stellar reliability rating that few rivals can match. Its towing and hauling capabilities are toward the top of its competitive class, and its wide range of engine choices let you decide what balance of capability, efficiency and value is right for you. It has a nice interior that can go anywhere from no-nonsense work truck to full-blown luxury vehicle depending on the trim. Find a Ford F-150 for sale
