Midsize SUV Sales In America – August 2017


 

The Toyota Highlander goes from strength to strength, hammering home year-on-year growth of more than 25% compared with last August.

Its growth is overshadowed by that of the Jeep Grand Cherokee; the stalwart SUV had its best month of the year in August, growing a full 28% on the equivalent month last year. A sporty Trackhawk version of the Grand Cherokee is due this autumn, with Jeep borrowing the 6.2-litre V8 from the Dodge Challenger for a full-on 707bhp.

Another SUV riding a wave of success is the GMC Acadia. 12 consecutive months of year-on-year growth for the Acadia put it on track for its best year ever. We could see it hit 100k sales in a year for the first time ever at the end of 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.
