The Escape’s nearest rival was nearly 1900 sales back of the Ford in July 2014 as Escape volume surged 28% and sales of that next-best-selling nameplate, the Honda CR-V, fell 2%. 

The category which they control – 42% of the segment’s sales come from the four top sellers – was up 14% in July, a gain of 3853 units compared with July 2013. 

Aside from the Escape’s 1105-unit gain, Nissan Rogue volume jumped by 1334 units and Volkswagen Tiguan sales rose by 526 units.

A smaller, perhaps even more car-like subset of this small SUV/crossover group was powered by big gains across the board last month. Chevrolet Trax sales jumped 26%. Sales of its twin, the Buick Encore, rose 37% to the highest level yet. Subaru sold 622 XV Crosstreks, a 14% improvement.

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. 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.
