September 2013 U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 90 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

The Honda CR-V's Interior Has A Lot More To Do
With Why People Buy CR-Vs Than Its Exterior Does
After taking over the U.S. SUV sales lead in August, and despite being outsold by the Ford Escape in September 2013, the Honda CR-V was America's best-selling SUV or crossover in America through the first three quarters of 2013. 

The Ford F-Series will end 2013 as America's best-selling truck and best-selling vehicle overall. The Toyota Camry will end 2013 as America's best-selling car. But the race to end 2013 as America's best-selling utility vehicle is undecided. The gap between the two top sellers is just 792 units.

Of course, GM's pair of small/midsize crossovers - Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain - have outsold the CR-V by 33,130 units. Yes, American Honda has sold an additional 33,539 copies of the Acura RDX. But then again, General Motors has also sold 40,506 copies of the Cadillac SRX, which shares some architecture with the Equinox and Terrain.

As for brands which sell SUVs and nothing else, Jeeps rank sixth, eighth, 23rd, 26th, and 70th. Jeep sold its first 17 Cherokees in Canada in September. Meanwhile, Land Rovers reside in the 59th, 66th, 67th, 72nd, and 78th positions.


SUV/CUV sales in United States slid 2.5% in September but America's appetite for utility vehicles has grown 11.7% in 2013. 48.6% of the new SUVs and crossovers registered in the United States so far this year were sold by the Chrysler Group, Ford Motor Company, and General Motors. That's down from 49.6% during the same period last year. Seven full-size SUVs from GM, Ford, Nissan, and Toyota account for 5.2% of all the utility vehicles sold.

These are year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs and crossovers by September volume by clicking the September 2013 column header, or you can rank SUVs 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.
Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
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.
