Right here. Americans have registered 154,692 Honda CR-Vs in 2014, meaning CR-V sales are up 6% compared with the first half of 2013, a record-setting year for the nameplate. 

Toyota RAV4 sales are up 15% after a record-setting 2013. Dodge is selling more Journeys, Jeep has sold 80,432 Cherokees, Nissan has sold 20,251 more Rogues than they had in the first six months of 2013.

That's not at all. Subaru Forester sales improvements total 23,652 extra units. Mitsubishi is increasing its U.S. Outlander sales total; Hyundai and Kia selling more Tucsons and Sportages. 

Notable in its omission from that group are Detroit's two top-selling utility vehicles, the Ford Escape and Chevrolet Equinox. Through the first half of 2014 and in June specifically, they were America's second and third-best-selling SUVs/crossovers, but sales are down. Equinox volume slid 8% in June and is now down 4.4% year-to-date. 

Escape sales dropped more harshly in June and are down 2.4% year-to-date. Their market share has clearly decreased, but especially in Ford's case, there's plenty of time to regain strength by year's end.

The CR-V led the category in seven of the last eight years.

GCBC isn't here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better, right? This explains why you'll see the Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small cars, too, and the tweener-sized Sorento and Santa Fe are shown with midsize SUVs and small SUVs, and the pricey FJ Cruiser and Xterra with midsizers, as well... because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the All Vehicle Rankings posts. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee - truly not midsize inside - replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.
