October 2014 U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 90 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

2015 Toyota 4Runner TRD Pro
SUV and crossover sales in the United States grew 10% in October 2014, a 38,000-unit improvement compared with October 2013.

The larger passenger car market, on the other hand, grew by just 17,000 units in October. The smaller pickup truck category was up 10%, as well, a near-19,000-unit improvement. Minivan sales, up 6% through the first three-quarters of 2014, fell 2% in October 2014.

Utility vehicles were led in October - and in year-to-date terms - by the Honda CR-V. Not only was the CR-V America's top-selling SUV/crossover in October 2014, it was also American Honda's best-selling model, ahead of the normally more popular Accord and Civic.

Last month did mark best-ever October sales for the Ford Escape, but the second-ranked SUV in America still trailed the CR-V by 4338 units; by 15,191 heading into November.

The Lincoln MKC, Porsche Macan, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q3, and BMW X4 weren't on sale at this time a year ago, but they've contributed 20,421 sales to the SUV category's ledger in 2014. 

In terms of volume, the more meaningful addition has been the Jeep Cherokee, which arrived late last October. 143,848 Cherokees have been sold this year – 169,634 since the nameplate returned - and it's been the best-selling Jeep in each of the last two months. Jeep is second only to niche automaker Maserati as the fastest-growing auto brand in America.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
^ Escalade here does not include sales of the EXT, which is shown with pickup trucks.
Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it's with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type's name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can't be squeezed through a round hole.

  1. I understand why people purchase #1 to #6...But how is the Equinox in that group?

  2. Are these sales figures 2015 only, or any year as long as it's a new car sale which if i'm not mistaken would only include MY14 & MY15? Also do pre orders factor in, or not until the sale is final?

  3. Reported sales have nothing to do with model years, only chronological occurrences. Subaru USA reported 2085 total WRX/STi sales during the month of October.
