Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America – November 2011


2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee River

Let’s just call it. Let’s end the suspense. The fat lady is singing, and she’s singing because the Ford Escape will be the best-selling SUV in America in 2011. 

Sure, there’s one month remaining, but the Escape is now 31,932 sales ahead of the second-ranked Honda CR-V, sales of which dropped 10% in November 2011. The third-ranked Chevrolet Equinox (down 3% in November) is another 21,708 sales back. November’s surge came as Ford offered discounts on leftovers before the 2013 Ford Escape arrives. The ancient (yet current) first-gen Escape finished November nearly 5400 sales of the CR-V. 

Up a class or two, Jeep reported a 23% increase in Grand Cherokee sales. The most expensive Jeep trails the Ford Explorer by almost 11,000 sales going into December, a lead the Explorer is unlikely to give up. Explorer sales rose 217% in November. The only Chrysler product more popular than the Grand Cherokee in November was the Ram pickup. 

You can find last month’s best-selling SUVs post here, last November’s edition here, and the 10 best-selling SUVs in America from November 2011 below. From America’s list of the 20 most popular cars in November, you’ll find just one – the Toyota Camry – that was more popular than America’s favourite little cute-ute.
