Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In America - August 2014

2014 Toyota RAV4
Neither of the two perennial favourites from Honda and Ford claimed the title of America's best-selling SUV in August 2014. CR-V sales fell 2% (and remained above 34,000 units), and the Escape's 8.5% gain was only good enough for third spot.

The Toyota RAV4 was America's most popular utility vehicle in August as sales jumped 52% to 35,614 units, a record-setting month following up on July's record-setting month.

The RAV4 was joined by one Toyota and one Lexus in the top 11. Honda's Pilot ranked 13th among SUVs and crossovers. The Escape was one of two Fords, including the sixth-ranked Explorer, to make the list. GM landed three utility vehicles in the top 16. There are four Jeeps along with the Dodge Journey. 

Only six of the 20 top-selling SUVs and crossovers in America recorded declining sales compared with August 2013. The RAV4's massive jump wasn't matched by any of its 19 closest followers, although the Nissan Rogue, Explorer, Subaru Forester, Mazda CX-5, and Jeep Patriot all posted gains above 24%.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling SUVs and crossovers can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well.
