While Ford is known primarily for legendary nameplates like the Mustang and the F-150, the brand offers a number of competitive vehicles in many of the hottest market segments. From a new Explorer, to a revival of the Ranger nameplate, buyers looking for a new vehicle are wise to consider one of America's most recognizable brands. Here, we'll highlight these two and more in a deeper dive into some of the company's most competitive products.

2020 Ford Explorer

Explorer

Previously a body-on-frame, truck like SUV, the Explorer adopted a more appealing unibody crossover-style design as a part of a full redesign back in 2011. Ford has recently introduced an all-new Explorer, which keeps the outgoing model's great unibody construction, but applies it to a new rear-wheel-drive-based platform, which should mean added performance and driving enjoyment. Rest assured, the new Explorer is still offered with all-wheel drive, in addition to improving on a number of areas with regard to safety and technology. Additionally, new Hybrid and ST performance variants will join the lineup when the new model goes on sale some time in 2019, serving to give prospective Explorer buyers even more options with regard to efficiency and driving excitement. Find a Ford Explorer for sale

2019 Ford Ranger

Ranger

After a 7-year hiatus, the Ford Ranger makes a return to the U.S. market for the 2019 model year, diving head first into the red-hot midsize pickup segment. Anyone previously considering a Toyota Tacoma or a Chevrolet Colorado would be wise to check out the new Ranger, as it offers a great turbocharged 4-cylinder engine mated to an even better 10-speed automatic transmission, the two of which combine to allow 4-wheel drive examples to achieve a respectable 20 miles per gallon in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, along with a maximum towing capacity of 7,500 pounds, positioning the Ranger at the forefront of this burgeoning segment. Find a Ford Ranger for sale

2019 Ford Mustang

Mustang

The brand's longest running nameplate, the Mustang has evolved from a throaty muscle car into a great all-around performance vehicle. For anyone yearning for that classic muscle car roar, Ford offers the Mustang with a quintessential 5.0-liter V8, putting out 460 horsepower and propelling the car from 0-to-60 mph in right around four seconds. Additionally, the Mustang is also available with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine putting out a respectable 310 hp. The EcoBoost Mustang, as it's known, offers respectable performance figures too, with a quoted 0-to-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds, and an available performance pack that should make this value-loaded Mustang an absolute hoot for anyone looking for track-day fun. Regardless of which one you choose, the Mustang is an excellent overall performance value. Find a Ford Mustang for sale

2019 Ford Edge ST

Edge ST

With cars falling out of favor with consumers and SUVs and crossovers rising in popularity, Ford has taken to introducing performance variants of some of its hottest SUVs, and its starting with the 2019 Edge ST. Replacing the Edge "Sport" offered in years past, the new ST offers a 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 engine, putting out 335 hp and hustling the new Edge from 0-to-60 mph in a brisk 5.9 seconds -- impressive for a midsize SUV. Other features of the Edge ST include a black mesh grille, unique seating surfaces and an available performance brake package offering vented brake discs, red brake calipers and 21-in gloss black wheels. Find a Ford Edge for sale

Autotrader Says …

Overall, Ford offers competitive vehicles in all of the hottest market segments, and will be thoroughly revamping its truck and SUV lineup in the coming years. Buyers looking for value should also take note of Ford's sedan offerings as well. Despite the fact that the manufacturer has announced the discontinuation of vehicles like the Fiesta, the Focus and the Fusion, Ford's outgoing car lineup is still pretty competitive, and buyers are likely to see great deals on these outgoing models as dealers make way for more SUVs. No matter how you slice it though, whether you're looking for a new full-size pickup, a fun muscle car, or a basic 4-door transportation, Ford is almost certain to have compelling offering worthy of your consideration.
