Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America - 2002 Year End

2003 Ford Explorer
America's list of the ten best-selling SUVs in 2002 was headlined by the Ford Explorer, sales of which declined in each of the seven years thereafter.

The Explorer's dominance in 2002 was complete: its nearest rival, the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, was 184,279 sales back of the Ford. In other words, the Explorer sold 74% more often than the next-best-selling SUV.

In total, three of four available Ford SUVs were present in the top ten. The other, Ford's gigantic Excursion, found 29,042 buyers in 2002.

Only two import nameplates cracked the top ten: Honda's eighth-ranked CR-V and the tenth-ranked Toyota Highlander. Two-thirds of Jeep's lineup was present in the top ten. Jeep also sold 64,351 Wranglers.
