The Ford Escape and its most direct rivals combined for a 12.9% increase in January 2014 despite the class-leading Escape's slight 2.4% decline. The 10,505 additional Jeep Cherokee sales (8470 more than its Liberty predecessor managed a year ago) were a big help. 

Exclude the Liberty/Cherokee and the segment still generated a 6.9% gain with help from the second-ranked Honda CR-V, the two smallest Jeeps, and huge increases from the second, third, and fourth-ranked Japanese-brand utility vehicles at Toyota, Nissan, and Subaru.

Aside from the Countryman, sales of the smaller, car-like crossovers from Buick, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, and Subaru improved in January. Collectively, the group was up 65% last month. America's trio of available off-road SUVs was up 10% last month, as well.

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 Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small 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 midsizers, as well... 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. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee - truly not midsize inside - replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.
