Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America - 2009 Year End

2010 Lexus RX
Although the U.S. auto industry collapsed, producing fewer than 11 million new vehicle sales, in 2009, numerous crossovers took advantage of continued disinterest in truck-based SUVs to produce American sales increases.

Sales of the Honda CR-V slid 3%, and yet the CR-V went from owning 1.5% of the overall new vehicle market in 2008 to 1.8% in 2009. Sales of the Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, Lexus RX, Chevrolet Traverse (rather expected given its newness) and Honda Pilot improved.

The Traverse, a large Lambda platform unibody utility vehicle, shot up to the fifth position as Chevrolet's full-size, truck-based Tahoe slid from the seventh position to #13, behind the Hyundai Santa Fe and Nissan Rogue, sales of which improved. Tahoe volume was down 20%. 

Meanwhile, for the third consecutive year, the Honda CR-V was America's best-selling SUV/crossover. The CR-V held the title for four years, lost it in 2011, and regained the crown in 2012 and 2013.
