Midsize SUV Sales Figures In America - October 2013 YTD

2013 Ford Flex
Ford Sells Lots Of Explorers, Not So Many Flexes
America's favourite three-row utility vehicle in October 2013 was the Ford Explorer. Indeed, the Explorer is America's favourite three-row vehicle, full stop. 

No minivan sells anywhere near as often as the Explorer. 2013's best-selling minivan, the Honda Odyssey, likely won't top 130,000 units in 2013. 

Ford has already sold 161,222 Explorers, 149,431 of which were civilian vehicles. 

Ford Police Interceptor Utility sales are up 144% to 11,791 this year.

Through 2013's first ten months, General Motors has sold 207,108 Lambda platform crossovers - Acadia, Enclave, Traverse - far outweighing what Ford has managed with the Explorer alone, in terms of volume. 

Sales of SUVs and crossovers at Ford and Lincoln are up 10.5% to 603,332 through ten months of 2013. GM SUV/CUV sales, further pushed forward by the addition of the Buick Encore, are up 15.8% to 779,019 through the end of October. Even without the Encore, GM utility vehicle sales are up 11.9%.

Japanese automakers own 22% of the midsize category, as it's defined in the first table below. Detroit manufacturers still attract the majority of buyers who are looking for bigger mainstream brand SUVs and crossovers. 

Indeed, among the biggest SUVs, GM owns nearly three quarters of the market.

You can click any model name in the tables below to find historical monthly and yearly U.S. auto sales data. You can also select a make and model at GCBC's Sales Stats page. These tables are now sortable, so you can rank midsize SUVs and crossovers any which way you like. Suggestions on how GCBC should break down segments can be passed on through the Contact page. The + icon has been removed from year-over-year improvements. Look instead for red font to designate year-over-year declines. We've also added prior year data, which means you'll spend less time hunting around GCBC looking for relatively recent historical data.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Outback and Venza here but also with midsize cars, too, and the tweener-sized Sorento and Santa Fe are shown with midsize SUVs and small SUVs, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with smaller utilities and the Volkswagen Touareg with luxury SUVs... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts.
