Midsize SUV Sales In America – February 2017


2017 GMC Acadia Denali

U.S. sales of SUVs/crossovers have grown 9% so far this year, earning 42% of the market thanks to big gains from new and refreshed utility vehicles such as the GMC Acadia, Mazda CX-9, and Toyota Highlander.

Acadia volume is up 43% this year thanks to the launch of a smaller, more efficient second-generation three-row GMC. Its former partner, the Chevrolet Traverse, has already been revealed in second-gen form but has yet to go on sale. The next Buick Enclave will appear later this year.

At Mazda, the relatively low-volume CX-9 is on track to rise to at least a six-year high. February was just the third 2000+ month in the last three and a half years.

The Toyota Highlander is an increasingly hot seller, buoyed by the facelifted 2017 model, its upgraded powerplant and new eight-speed transmission. Compared with the first two months of 2016, the best year ever for the Highlander, sales are up a further 21% in 2017.

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 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.
