February 2013 Midsize SUV And Crossover Sales In America

2013 Ford Explorer Sport Ruby Red
Assisted by 805 Police Interceptor Utility sales, the Ford Explorer recorded a 67% year-over-year U.S. sales increase in February 2013. Sales of the non-police Explorers rose 59% in February, and year-to-date, they're up 53% to 31,140. 

Chief rivals are quite a ways behind. Jeep Grand Cherokee sales are down 12% this year. A new diesel engine option should provide a boost, as will other key updates. Sales of the Toyota Highlander are up 21%, but Explorer volume is 80% stronger. The Honda Pilot is 15,579 sales back of the Ford. And Ford's own two-row Edge is 13,301 units abaft.

The Explorer, America's fourth-best-selling SUV in America this year, is just 11,451 sales behind the best-selling Ford Escape in 2013. A year ago, the Explorer ranked seventh, 23,313 sales back of the top-selling Honda CR-V. 

The nearly iconic Explorer was last America's best-selling SUV in 2006. It's unlikely that it'll rank at the top of the heap again - the least efficient Escape is 8.7% more efficient than the most efficient Explorer, and cheaper, too - but we wouldn't have expected sales of the fifth-gen Explorer to be rising so quickly in early 2013, either.
