Here’s a look at what AutoNXT editors deem as some of the top cars of 2020.
14. 2021 Ford Bronco Sport
According to Car and Driver, the 2021 Ford Bronco Sport is a viable alternative to Jeep’s smaller model off-road-ready SUVs. It was estimated to earn 25 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. However, the four-cylinder version drops to 21 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport has five models to select from, with the Badlands model being the most capable off-road. It has a 245-hp turbo-four engine, an enhanced all-wheel-drive system, a lifted suspension and upgraded dampers for rugged terrain.
Inside the Bronco Sport are plenty of popular features, including upright seating position, a good amount of rear-seat legroom, tons of cargo space, washable, rubberized flooring and upholstery, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, touch-sensitive controls and voice commands and a storage bin under the back seats.
Safety and driver-assistance features include standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic assist, standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, and available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology.
Starting price: $28,155
13. 2021 Ford F-150
Did you know that the Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in America for nearly 40 years? It should come as no surprise, then, that the F-150 is considered one of the top cars of 2020.
The new Ford F-150 has a powerful V8 engine, a high-torque diesel, and multiple turbocharged EcoBoost powerplants. It can reach 60 mph in 5.7 seconds, gets an estimated 20 mpg combined for city/highway driving and can tow up to 14,000 pounds.
Inside the 2021 Ford F-150, you’ll find updated infotainment and storage options, including a 12-inch touchscreen display that can be split for multiple functions simultaneously, max-recline seats in the cabin and a center console that converts to a table.
