The CR-V, American Honda's best-selling model year-to-date, was the third-ranked Honda during the month of May. Surging toward the top of the leaderboard last month was the Chevrolet Equinox, which overtook the Ford Escape to earn second spot for the second consecutive month. The CR-V has been the top-selling SUV/crossover in the United States in nine consecutive months.

The overwhelming majority of America's most popular SUVs and crossovers are significantly more popular this year than last, as evidenced by the lack of red font in the list below. Jeep was the stand-out utility vehicle brand in May with the brand's best-ever month of sales, the Wrangler's first-ever month above 20,000 units, and record Cherokee sales, as well.

Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling SUVs and crossovers can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC's Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of America's best-selling trucks in May and will shortly publish the list of America's 20 best-selling cars.
