Small SUV Sales In America - February 2014 YTD

2014 Ford Escape white
No, the U.S. auto industry isn't currently growing at the rapid pace it did in early 2013, but sales of small SUVs and crossovers are shooting through the roof as a handful of Japanese-brand utilities steal market share from the class leaders. Jeep's new Cherokee is certainly have an impact, as well.

The Cherokee, meanwhile, was up 671% from the Liberty's February 2013 performance.

February 2013's figures show the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Chevrolet Equinox - still the segment leaders - claiming 41.7% market share. In February 2014, despite the CR-V's slight increase and the Equinox's more meaningful improvement, the trio combined to own 34.9% of the segment, a huge drop, indeed.

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.
