Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America – December 2010


Despite a terrific performance in which sales jumped 79%, the Chevrolet Equinox wasn’t able to land America’s best-selling SUV crown in December 2010. Just imagine how strong General Motors would look if The Good Car Guy would include the GMC Terrain’s 9303 sales?

The order of the top five didn’t change from November 2010, as you can see in the status column. However, the Honda Pilot and Lexus RX made their way back into the Top 10 while the Nissan Rogue and Kia Sorento fell off the wagon. Keep in mind, Sorento sales were up 213% – it wasn’t a bad month at Kia. Nissan Rogue sales were up 58.2%, not a horrendous result, either. 

Based on this listing of America’s Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs, Americans clearly didn’t show a conscious worry of rising fuel prices nor did they balk at vehicle purchases in a month when holiday spending is priority number one for many families. The top ten’s total sales volume was up 25% from November 2010.
