Best is a purely subjective criteria. All of Ford's vehicles are in the number one or number two position world wide in quality, fuel economy, safety, performance etc. So it would be entirely dependent on what you wanted.
I own an explorer and I love it. It's a 4 wheel drive and it's fantastic in the winter. It's a 2004. I haven't had any major issues with it. I wish they made the newer models a little bigger. Not much leg room in the back seat and in the 3rd row but it's a great suv.
The new line of Ford vehicles are some of the most progressive automobiles ever made.they just moved ahead of Toyota in overall quality,and that says a lot.Perhaps the best ford on the market is the new Ford Taurus SHO.SHO stands for super high output,and refers to the engine in this model.Ford has a promotional video that shows the Taurus SHO going head to head with all the major sports cars on the market,and it BLOWS them out of the water in all aspects. from top end speed,to passenger cabin sound proofing.Add to that the fact that this car has some great curves,and body lines,and even i must admit this car is hard to beat.AND I'M A DIE HARD G.M.man.My hat is off to Ford motor corp. for making American autos that can not only compete w/Honda/Toyota but smash them into the ground.the SHO does just that.
