Big gains were were produced by few other three-row utility vehicles last month. The Hyundai Santa Fe XL rose 38% to 429 units, but Toyota Highlander volume slid slightly and the aging Honda Pilot was down 11%. Dodge Durango sales, up 48% this year, slid 32% in October.

The Ford Explorer continues to be Canada’s leading three-row utility vehicle, but sales of tweener-sized two rows like the Ford Edge (soon to be replaced) and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport are far stronger. 

Unlike American car buyers, when Canadians think three rows, they’re far more likely to pursue a Dodge Grand Caravan than an Explorer. 

And when Canadians do narrow their choices down to utility vehicles, a Ford Escape is a far more likely purchase than the Explorer. It sells four times more often than the Explorer in Canada; not even 1.5 times more often in the United States.

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 Wrangler and Xterra listed with small SUVs, too, and the Subaru Outback shown with mainstream cars… 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.
