March 2017 YTD U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 101 Best-Selling SUVs In America – Every SUV Ranked


2017 Mercedes-AMG GLC63 AMG S

U.S. sales of SUVs and crossovers jumped 9% in March 2017, holding fast to a trend set throughout the first-quarter of 2017. No vehicle sector – not vans, not trucks, not cars – garners more sales activity in the United States today than the utility vehicle market, which accounted for 41% of the overall industry in 2017 Q1.

Passenger car market share, meanwhile, fell from 41% in 2016 Q1 to 37% so far this year. While most of the most popular cars in America are selling far less often this year than last, the best-selling Nissan Rogue and its three top-selling cohorts have all made improvements.

Together, the Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Ford Escape have already added 64,409 sales to the ledger in 2017, year-over-year. In March 2017 alone, the Rogue, CR-V, and RAV4 were up by nearly 21,000 units.

Whether the Rogue can maintain this unbelievable momentum throughout the course of the year depends on the degree to which Nissan is content to incentivize the top-ranked utility vehicle, the degree to which the new Rogue Sport (aka Qashqai) eats into its volume, and the degree to which new and refreshed vehicles like the CR-V and Mazda CX-5 carve out greater market share.

Reminder: these are 2017 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort SUVs/crossovers by March volume by clicking the March 2017 column header, or you can rank SUVs/crossovers by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the SUV/Crossover column header.

As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
