Top 20 Best-Selling SUVs In America - October 2014

2015 Honda CRV
The Honda CR-V was America's best-selling SUV in October 2014 as sales surged 30%, more than enough to fend off the Ford Escape in the Ford's best-ever October. (October 2014 was a best-ever month for the CR-V, too.)

All 14 of America's top 14 best-selling SUVs and crossovers in October 2014 sold more often last month than in the same period one year ago. The biggest increase, of course, belonged to the Jeep Cherokee, which wasn't here in time to put a full month under its belt last year. 

But there were massive gains from other sources, not the least of which was the CR-V's, equal to 6703 extra sales. Toyota Highlander sales jumped 30%, as well. Toyota RAV4 sales rose 22%. The Chevrolet Traverse was up 24%. Year-over-year improvements posted by the Escape, Nissan Rogue, Jeep Wrangler, and Jeep Patriot all measured in the double digits.

Now ahead of the Escape by 15,191 units heading into the final two months of the year, the CR-V has all but locked up the title of America's best-selling SUV for the third consecutive year. Now the CR-V is on to another race: in October, it was also the best-selling Honda.

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. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of America's best-selling trucks in October and will shortly publish the list of America's 20 best-selling cars.
