May 2014 U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 88 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

2014 Chevrolet Equinox
Compared with May 2014, U.S. sales of SUVs and crossovers increased 10% in May 2015, a gain of more than 50,000 units in a market that saw car sales drip noticeably. 

The Honda CR-V was the top-selling utility vehicle in America, continuing a streak of leadership that stretches back to September of last year. But CR-V sales declined ever so slightly in May 2015, and we have to assume the new Honda HR-V is partially to blame. Although the new HR-V's base price is 22% higher than the base price for the car on which it's based, the Fit - and Fit sales increased hugely in May – a basic HR-V is 18% cheaper than the basic CR-V.

And considering May was the HR-V's first month on the market, it was ridiculously popular. Mazda's CX-3 hadn't yet shown up; Fiat only reported eight 500X sales; Honda sold 6381 HR-Vs. That was enough to make the HR-V America's 26th-best-selling SUV or crossover in May 2015.



But HR-V sales will inevitably rise. Theories that this is Honda's latest hit, even if it's only barely a crossover in a world that's all but forsaken SUVs, are on track.


All but forsaken? Jeep set a Wrangler sales record in the U.S. in May with 22,324 units.

But that's a rare exception. The Chevrolet Equinox, something of an indirect replacement for the body-on-frame Chevrolet TrailBlazer of long ago, is now America's second-best-selling SUV/crossover. Other CUVs dominate the leaderboard, from the CR-V and Escape to the RAV4, Rogue, Explorer, and Cherokee. Yes, even the Explorer and Cherokee have fled their SUV roots.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
^ Escalade here does not include sales of the EXT, which is shown with pickup trucks.
Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it's with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type's name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can't be squeezed through a round hole.
