This week, Jochen From New Jersey wanted to know the following: “Which luxury car brand sells the most SUVs?” We’ll look exclusively at the United States and rank brands by their total SUV/crossover volume.

Easy enough. Across all 11 brands, sales jumped 20% last year to just under 1 million units: 996,986, equal to 16% of the overall SUV/crossover market.

Here are all premium brand sellers of utility vehicles in America ranked by calendar year 2015 sales.
