January 2015 U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 89 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

2015 Lincoln MKC
America's SUV/crossover market grew 19% in January 2015, a 63,000-unit improvement compared with January 2014.

For the fifth consecutive month, the Honda CR-V was America's top-selling utility vehicle. The CR-V outsold the second-ranked Ford Escape by 3157 units. The third-ranked Toyota RAV4, the last utility vehicle to outsell the CR-V on a monthly basis, was just 230 sales back of the Escape.

U.S. sales of SUVs and crossovers expanded more rapidly than the overall market (+14%) in January but not quite as fast as the growth experienced in the pickup truck sector (+22%). 


Only a handful of moderately high-volume SUVs and crossovers posted year-over-year decreases: the Ford Edge, Dodge Durango, Buick Enclave, Cadillac SRX, and Hyundai Tucson, none of which sold half as often as the top-selling CR-V.

There were no new entrants in the utility vehicle arena in January, although the Volvo V60 Cross Country (which we label as a car) attracted its first 28 buyers. The Chevrolet Trax was in its second month on the U.S. market. It ranked 50th overall with 1839 sales, just behind the Mercedes-Benz GLA; just ahead of the Lexus GX460. 
The Trax, together with a number of premium brand utility vehicles which weren't on sale at this time a year ago, accounted for 2.6% of all SUV and crossover sales in America in January.

* 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.
