Which Fords are the Best Uber Acceptable Vehicles?

As an avid Uber user, I have been picked up in many different popular model vehicles. For example, I have experienced an Uber trip in a Honda Accord, Toyota Corolla, and a Ford Fusion just to name a few. But with the popularity and limited color choices, I have been on vacation or away for business and witnessed people getting into the wrong vehicles thinking it was the Uber they ordered. It wasn’t until recently that I realized some of the Fords would make great Uber vehicles.

The Ford Fusion, Focus, and mostly all of the SUV’s in the Ford lineup would serve as efficient Uber acceptable vehicles. Additionally, with all the extra incentives Ford is offering currently, a new vehicle could be the best option.
