Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America - 2007 Year End

2007 Ford Edge
America's new vehicle market continued to contract at a slow rate in 2007; the light truck market at an even slower 2% pace. But there was a certain class of vehicle making hay.

Buyers who wanted high-riding SUVs but didn't want to pay for the truck-based vehicles themselves or the fuel that they'd require turned increasingly to car-based small crossovers. It's a trend we're very familiar with in 2014. But in 2007, the trio of utility vehicle leaders were, while certainly known entities, not traditional best sellers.

All Vehicles Ranked By 2007 U.S. Year End Sales


In 2006, the Honda CR-V ranked third, with sales having risen 13%, year-over-year. The Ford Escape was down 5% to 157,395 units, fifth on the list of America's ten best-selling SUVs. Toyota RAV4 sales more than doubled, and it was America's seventh-ranked utility vehicle.

The CR-V was the best-selling utility vehicle in America in 2007, the RAV4 was America's second-best-selling utility vehicle, and the Escape ranked third. 2006's first and second-best-selling SUVs, the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet TrailBlazer, fell to the fifth and sixth spots in 2007. Car-like SUVs like the Ford Edge and Toyota Highlander fell into place as the seventh and eighth best sellers.
