Small SUV Sales In America - February 2015 YTD

Yes, that's the Ford Escape ranked fifth in its class in terms of U.S. sales in February 2015. Typically the number two vehicle - and the top-ranked small SUV/crossover in February 2014 - the Escape was the last vehicle other than the Honda CR-V to end a calendar year as America's favourite utility vehicle.

But as its rivals its category climbed 8% in February 2015, Escape sales tumbled 10%, a loss of 2230 units.

Don't expect Ford to consistently suffer from declining Escape volume. But don't expect potential challengers to quit their quest for the top of the leaderboard. 

The Toyota RAV4 is the only contender that had been able to consistently sell in Honda CR-V/Ford Escape-like numbers. The Chevrolet Equinox will soon be refreshed, and though it'll still use old architecture, GM has proven more than capable of selling the Equinox in big numbers as the vehicle approached old age. The Nissan Rogue is Nissan's driving force. Remove it and they wouldn't have outsold the Honda brand in each of the last two months.

* vehicle also displayed in another GCBC segment breakdown
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 Encore and XV Crosstrek are listed with small 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 midsizers, as well... 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. GCBC has historically shown the Liberty with midsize SUVs but as the Cherokee - truly not midsize inside - replaces the Liberty, proper year-over-year comparison requires seeing the Liberty listed here with these smaller utility vehicles.
