There may be no better example of the American dream than Henry Ford. From the son of an immigrant farmer to the founder of Ford Motor Company, Ford altered personal transportation like few others.
More than 100 years later, used Ford vehicles continue to meet the demands of a variety of buyers. Much of its success is attributable to the Chevy Camaro's nemesis, the Ford Mustang; family-friendly alternatives to the Toyota Camry, such as the Ford Taurus; and a series of ever-growing utility vehicles, many of which start with "EX" - Explorer, Expedition, and Excursion. For lighter loads, the Blue Oval brand offers the used Ford F150, Ford Ranger and Ford Sport Trac, but for heavier lifting, look to the Ford F250 and F350 in the Ford truck lineup. If, however, fuel efficiency is your primary concern, consider the Ford Focus or Ford Fiesta. Hybrid and all-electric versions of the Ford Escape, Ford Focus, Ford Fusion and Ford C-MAX Energi round out the list.
