Jeep also began selling their new small SUV, the Renegade, in March 2015. Only 943 were sold in the little Jeep’s abbreviated first month. There are now more than 5000 Renegades in stock at U.S. dealers; we can expect numbers to grow rapidly over the next few months.

Meanwhile, the best-selling SUV/CUV in America for the seventh consecutive month was the Honda CR-V. Nissan’s Rogue was only 200 units back of the Honda. In the race to end 2015 as the best-selling utility vehicle, the CR-V leads the second-ranked Ford Escape by 5855 units.

* 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.
