U.S. SUV/Crossover Sales Rankings By Model – June 2015 YTD

After rising in five consecutive years through 2014 and surging 27% through the first-quarter of 2015, U.S. sales of America’s top-selling three-row vehicle improved by just 2% in April and slid by 1% in May. But Explorer sales jumped 30% in June 2015, seemingly putting to an end the transition period turmoil between the 2015 and 2016 MY Explorers. 

According to Cars.com, fully one-third of the Explorers currently in stock are MY2016 models.

There are certainly Explorer challengers, most notably from General Motors. Combined, the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia produced 23,328 total sales across the Lambda platform. Toyota Highlander sales jumped 20% to 13,831 units in June. 

Jeep’s two-row Grand Cherokee, as much of a Lexus RX and/or Toyota 4Runner alternative as a Ford Explorer fighter, was up 3% to 15,464 units.

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.
