2014 Year End U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 92 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

2015 honda cr-v
America's best-selling SUV in 2014 was the Honda CR-V, the third consecutive year and seventh in the last eight in which the CR-V has led the U.S. utility vehicle leaderboard.

The CR-V strengthened its position on top by expanding the gap between itself and the Ford Escape to 28,807 units, up from 7911 units in 2013.

Yet joining the CR-V in its record-setting sales year were some of its closest rivals: the second-ranked Ford Escape, the third-ranked Toyota RAV4, the fourth-ranked Chevrolet Equinox, and the sixth-ranked Nissan Rogue.


Traditional favourites like the Ford Explorer and Jeep Grand Cherokee reported nine-year highs. Year-over-year, the full-size SUV category was up 12% to 293,087 units. Luxury automakers also improved upon their 2013 SUV/crossover sales totals: BMW's five X models were up 8%, Mercedes-Benz utilities rose 11%, Lincoln's four utility vehicle nameplates jumped 36%, Cadillac's Escalades and SRX rose 9%, Acura's crossover lineup was up 13%, Land Rover's Range Rover trio improved by 9%, Lexus SUV/crossover sales were up 14%, Audi and Porsche combined for an 18% increase. Infiniti and Volvo were the only premium brands to report fewer SUV/crossover sales in 2014 than in 2013.

* 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.
