Midsize SUV Sales In America – November 2014 YTD


2014 Toyota Highlander cargo area

Much of the strength in the U.S. utility vehicle market stems from growth in the number of available luxury nameplates and the expansion of the small two-row crossover segment.

In the former group, we have new products like Lexus NX, Lincoln MKC, Audi A3, and Mercedes-Benz GLA. In the latter, the Honda CR-V ended November as America’s best-selling non-pickup truck. 

That’s not to say this larger, often-two-row type of vehicle is struggling, but it’s not the source of excitement among SUV sellers that the smaller segment is. 

Then again, the Ford Explorer continues its march upwards. No three-row vehicle – no minivan, no crossover, no SUV – sells as often in the United States as the Explorer. Sales of the venerable Ford nameplate are up 9% this year and shot up 15% in November. 

The Toyota 4Runner still resides on the truck-based side of the SUV/crossover conundrum. The 4Runner has taken off in 2014, rising 53% in November and 48% through the first eleven months of the year.

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 Outback and Venza here but also with midsize 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 smaller utilities and the Volkswagen Touareg with luxury SUVs… 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.
