What's the Difference between Ford Crossovers and SUVs?

The key difference between a Ford crossover and SUV is related to the way they are made. A crossover typically features a unibody construction. This means its structure is more rigid and shares a likeness to the sedan. The result is better maneuverability on the street. Due to the low cost of manufacturing this body style, Ford crossovers like the Ford Escape, Ford EcoSport, and Ford Edge are far more affordable. Alternatively, an SUV often features a body-on-frame construction which enables it to perform more like a truck. As its name suggests, it is a utility vehicle in that it can tow greater loads and perform better in off-road scenarios. Usually, Ford SUVs are much larger in size, too. Take the 7-passenger Ford Explorer and 8-passenger Ford Expedition.
