November 2015 YTD U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 97 Best-Selling SUVs In America – Every SUV Ranked


2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid blue

As U.S. auto sales volume expanded by just 1% in a shorter-than-normal November sales month, SUV/crossover volume jumped 12%, a gain of 54,000 units.

The shorter sales month wasn’t the only thing working against the growth of the SUV/crossover market. The two most popular utility vehicles in America heading into November – the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape – posted 20% and 19% year-over-year losses, respectively, last month.

With joint CR-V/Escape sales falling by 11,168 units, the achievement of the overall utility vehicle market stands out as being all the more impressive. 

The addition of new product played a significant role in elevating the sector.

Six crossovers not on sale at this stage a year ago, or at least not for the duration of November 2014, combined for 23,771 U.S. sales in November 2015, 5% of the sector’s total volume.

Those vehicles – Trax, Renegade, HR-V, 500X, CX-3, NX – are surely stealing a measure of sales from established nameplates, but it’s worth noting that the SUV/crossover arena would be larger this year than last even without the impact of those new nameplates.

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.
