August 2013 U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 89 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

2014 Kia Sorento red
Only One SUV In The Top 30 Has Reported A  YOY
Decline Through August 2013, The Kia Sorento.
Sales Were Up In August, However.
Americans registered nearly 90,000 more SUVs and crossovers in August 2013 than in August 2012. 

Those gains were fuelled in large part by the Honda CR-V (up 10,777 units), Chevrolet Equinox (up 4842 units), and an additional 4296 sales from the Buick Encore. All three of those nameplates reported best-ever months in August. 

The CR-V's August was good enough for the smaller Honda utility vehicle to lay claim to the title of best-selling SUV in America, not only in August, but year-to-date. The CR-V's lead over the Ford Escape is narrow, however. 

With four months of battling ahead, the Honda CR-V is 1960 sales up on the Ford Escape. Both vehicles have managed to attract more than 200,000 buyers in the first two-thirds of 2013. A year ago, the CR-V was at 191,113; the Escape hadn't yet crested 177,000.


Meanwhile, Jeep has sold more than 100,000 Wranglers and 100,000 Grand Cherokees, and Nissan has already sold more than 100,000 Rogues. It took until September for those three utility vehicles to cross the 100K threshold last year.

These are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs and crossovers by August volume by clicking the August 2013 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header. Just remember, the list is horizontally flipped from the norm: YTD on the left, monthly data on the right.


As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page.

Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
^ Escalade here does not include sales of the EXT, which is shown with pickup trucks.

Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it's with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type's name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can't be squeezed through a round hole.
