If you're tired of being confined to the trappings of an ordinary sedan, it's time to break free and upgrade to an SUV in the Ford lineup. Ford has made its name creating the most reliable vehicles in America for over a century, and with the current SUV and crossover zeitgeist taking the world by storm, there's never been a better time to take the plunge.

The best part about Ford's SUV offerings is that there is an option for everyone, making it work for drivers who are brand new to the segment or for those who refuse to get behind the wheel of anything else. The first step is figuring out which one is right for you.

For drivers who are new to the segment, we recommend the subcompact EcoSport or the compact Escape. Both SUVs are great options for those less experienced in the ways of handling SUVs as they are similar to sedans while offering the kind of interior utility you expect.

The mid-size offerings that Ford currently has are occupied by two options, the Edge and the Explorer. Both have their advantages with the Edge leading the way in fuel economy, and the high-level Explorer topping out at 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

Finally, if you're looking to go big, the Ford Expedition is the best large SUV that money can buy. With a high long-term reliability rating, engine power that can be as strong as 400 horsepower, seating for up to eight, and as much as 121.5 cubic feet of cargo space, the Expedition impresses on all levels.

Test drive a Ford SUV today and experience the difference.
