Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In Canada - May 2012

2012 Dodge Journey Crew Grille
After winding its way onto Canada's best-selling SUV/crossover list in March 2012 and April 2012, just its second and third months on sale, the Mazda CX-5 couldn't muster more than 1308 Canadian sales in May 2012. The Hyundai Tucson, down 19% year-over-year, fell to 1361 sales, 53 units ahead of the big-mouthed Mazda.

There were other changes besides the CX-5's offing and the Nissan Rogue's re-entry. Ford took back Canada's best-selling SUV title, not just for the single month of May, but on year-to-date terms. Don't for a second conclude that the Ford's ticket to the top was paid for by the all-new 2013 Escape, either. For one thing, Escape sales were down compared with May of last year. For another, the 2013 Escape is still a rare species. The Ford dealer nearest to GCBC Towers currently has five 2013 Escapes for sale and 64 old-design 2012 Escapes.

Both Ford Canada and Chrysler Canada ended May 2012 with two utility vehicles which sold more frequently than any GM Canada SUV. Chevrolet Equinox sales fell 7% to 2083 in May. Jeep sold more Wranglers, Dodge sold more Journeys, and Ford sold more Escapes and Edges. Chrysler Canada sold 7688 SUVs and crossovers in May. Ford and Lincoln combined for 9135 utility vehicle sales. Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC sold 5019 sport-utes and crossovers in the same time period, fewer than Hyundai-Kia. 

Of course, the combined efforts of Chevy's Equinox and its twin, the GMC Terrain, would have landed the duo in second place in May with 3141 sales. Terrain sales slid 10% in May.

Monthly and yearly sales figures for these ten utility vehicles and every other vehicle currently on sale in North America can be found through the dropdown menu at the top right of this page or at GoodCarBadCar's Sales Stats home.
