Midsize SUV Sales In America - February 2014 YTD

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee off road red
Toyota Highlander sales continued to increase in February 2014. Jeep's Grand Cherokee recorded especially strong year-over-year growth. The Ford Explorer suffered its second consecutive major decline; its fourth straight year-over-year drop.

The Explorer continues to be America's favourite three-row vehicle, nevertheless. The Ford had a 230-unit gap beyond the JGC's total even when the Explorer's Police Interceptor versions are excluded.

The Grand Cherokee, despite the lack of a third row option, seems to be unaffected by the introduction of the smaller, less costly Cherokee. The addition of a diesel engine option won't hurt the bigger Cherokee, either.

Honda's Pilot is not far from a revamping, and with a newer Pathfinder and newer Highlander on offer, it's not surprising to see the Pilot struggling to match last year's sales pace. Pilot sales reached a seven-year high in 2013.

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.

  1. Not sure why the tested car was so expensive: I got my Lincoln hybrid-2013 almost a year ago in reserve package with glass roof, park assist and lane keeping system for $41K. It was only 2K more than a similar Fusion Titanium but presented by far better styling and features (quiet cabin, better sound insulation, suspension, glass roof). Are Lincolns taxed in Canada more than Fusions (at the luxury vehicle scale) or, possibly, oversubscribed and thus more expensive than in the US?

  2. Don't know how you got to 49K without lane keeping or rain sensing wipers. at MSRP of 50,500 you get everything minus the retractable roof. No mention of the drive control system? How was the handling/performance/ride between comfort/normal/sport modes?

  3. This MKZ Hybrid was a Preferred Package car with options including floormats and inflatable seatbelts. We've inquired about receiving the window sticker so we can include it here.

  4. The MKZ (Preferred) was optioned with $225 in interior satin/nickel/aluminum trim, $1600 moonroof, $250 all-weather floor mats, $750 multi-contour seats, $250 inflatable rear seatbelts, and $350 for a power rear sunshade. Add in Ford's handling fees and the window sticker totals $49,625.
