Midsize SUV Sales In America - April 2015 YTD

2015 Ford Edge
So healthy are U.S. sales of the Ford Explorer Police Interceptor that the civilian Explorer's April decline was more than made up for by the police Explorer's April improvement.

In April 2015, the conventional Ford Explorer posted a slight 0.3% decrease. Yet total Explorer volume rose 2%, a gain of 365 units, because Police Interceptor Utility volume rose 22% to 2259 units, more than double the total of the Ford Taurus Police Interceptor.

The Explorer is America's best-selling three-row vehicle.

Ford also welcomed a new version of their larger two-row utility vehicle. The Escape is Ford's top-selling utility, but the Edge added 13,097 April sales, a 78% year-over-year increase. The first-gen Edge went on sale at the end of 2006. 

Among larger two-row utility vehicles - setting aside small crossovers like the Escape, RAV4, and CR-V - the Jeep Grand Cherokee stands out as the top seller. Grand Cherokee sales rose 2% to 16,030 April sales. 

Nissan also competes in this field with the new, third-gen Murano. Hyundai combines sales of the Santa Fe Sport and three-row Santa Fe. Likewise, the Kia Sorento overlaps many crossover sub-segments because of its value-oriented pricing, tweener size, and available third row.

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 Outback and Venza here but also with midsize 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 smaller utilities and the Volkswagen Touareg with luxury SUVs... 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.
