August 2015 YTD U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings - Top 96 Best-Selling SUVs In America - Every SUV Ranked

2013 Ford Escape green
Only four of the 30 best-selling SUVs and crossovers in America are selling less often in 2015 than they did in 2014. 

Only three of the 25 best-selling SUVs/CUVs in America are in decline. 

And only one of the 22 top-selling SUV/crossover models on sale in the United States is less numerous in terms of new vehicle sales in the first eight months of 2015 than during the first eight months of 2014.

That final vehicle, the Ford Escape, is down 2% in 2015, a loss of 3905 units. It's still America's second-most-popular utility vehicle, 25,035 sales back of the top-selling Honda CR-V.

The CR-V's lead is substantial, and the consistency with which the CR-V has built up that lead is notable. In each of the last twelve months, the CR-V has been America's top-selling SUV/crossover. 


If it succeeds in holding on to this lead – and with four months remaining it's all but certain that the CR-V will – than 2015 will be the fourth consecutive year and the eighth year in the last nine that the Honda CR-V will end a calendar year as America's favourite SUV/crossover.

The CR-V must now fend off added competition inside its own showroom. Granted, sales of the HR-V, Honda's latest crossover entry, fell to the lowest total yet in August. The HR-V arrived four months ago.

Indeed, August was the first month in which the HR-V and its subcompact crossover compatriots were made to tangle with the new Mazda CX-3. The CX-3 produced just as many sales in August as its big brother, the CX-5, lost.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total.
^ Escalade here does not include sales of the EXT, which is shown with pickup trucks.
Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it's with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type's name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can't be squeezed through a round hole.
