Top 10 Best-Selling SUVs In America - 2008 Year End

2008 Saturn Vue
For the second consecutive year, the Honda CR-V was America's favourite SUV/crossover. Of course, 2008 was not much of a year on which to base trends, as sales across the industry were plunging, particularly toward the end of the year.

But the CR-V's ability to lead SUVs and crossovers in terms of U.S. sales has held almost completely firm (save for 2011) since it took over from the Ford Explorer in 2007.

Car-based SUVs - we call them crossovers now, whatever that means - took the six top spots and eight of the top ten in 2008. This list includes one premium brand utility, the Lexus RX. And a Saturn. 

That Saturn, the tenth-ranked Vue, was new for the 2008 model year. You can still buy one, sort of. The fleet-only Chevrolet Captiva Sport is a Vue, and it was America's 31st-best-selling SUV/crossover in 2013.
