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

2016 Honda Pilot
U.S. SUV and crossover sales jumped slightly more than 8% in February 2015, a significantly slower growth rate than the category achieved the prior month.

Still, over 427,000 utility vehicles were sold by the 27 automobile manufacturers that sell them in the United States. That's a near-42,000-unit improvement compared with February 2014.

Don't thank Ford for the improvement. The brand's five utility vehicles slid 4% as their leader, the small Escape, slid to fifth spot in the February standings. Year-to-date, the Escape is down 4% and ranks fourth in the SUV/crossover category behind the class-leading Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Chevrolet Equinox. 

In the premium field, Ford's Lincoln brand posted a 33% improvement in February SUV/crossover sales. Excluding the MKC, which wasn't on sale a year ago, Lincoln brand sales were down 31%. Non-MKC Lincoln utility vehicle volume was down 22%. A new MKX will help, but it wasn't be a significant helper unless it's more of a hit than the still-fresh MKC.

Americans buy more Lexus RX crossovers than any other premium brand utility vehicle. As a brand, Lexus was also the highest-selling purveyor of SUVs and crossovers in February. With 11,100 GX, LX, NX, and RX sales, Lexus utilities outsold Mercedes-Benz's G, GL, GLA, GLK, and M by 2006 units.

Honda's 90% Pilot improvement over the first two months of 2015 is by far the most impressive gain among top sellers so far this year. Keep in mind, this reflects Honda's attempt to clear out remaining second-gen Pilots. The third generation of Honda's big crossover is pictured above.

* 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.
