2013 Chevrolet Tahoe beige city driving
Best-ever months for numerous crossovers made for some exceedingly high numbers on this list of America's 20 best-selling SUVs for May 2013. The five top sellers combined for 118,128 sales, up 14% from 103,287 a year ago, when in fact, the top five was made up of the same five nameplates.

Because of 16K+-unit months from the Wrangler and Grand Cherokee, Jeep sales grew despite 6658 lost Liberty sales. Mazda's CX-5 was only 1807 units from being the most popular Mazda - the CX-5's three highest-volume months have all occurred in the last three months.

GM sold 9243 Chevrolet Tahoes, a 29% increase, but that's not all. Sales of the Escalade, Escalade ESV, Suburban, and Yukon XL all rose, and collectively, General Motors sold 22,601 full-size SUVs off their full-size truck foundation, a 28% improvement.
