Top 10 Best-Selling American SUVs In Canada – September 2010
Four of Canada’s best-selling American SUVs/crossovers are actually just about as Canadian as they are American. Although by GoodCarBadCar.net standards, all ten of the utility vehicles listed below are officially American, the Chevrolet Equinox; Ford Edge; GMC Terrain; and Lincoln MKX are all built in southern Ontario. Incidentally, the Dodge Journey is built in Toluca, Mexico.
By government standards, SUVs and most crossovers are part of the “light truck” category. Light trucks have made quite a comeback in 2010 in Canada, grabbing 53.9% of the market through the end of September compared with 48.1% in the same period of 2009. For that you can thank vehicles like the immensely popular Ford Escape. September 2010 sales of the Escape were up 75.9%. The introduction of the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee spiked Jeep sales in September. In fact, more than one quarter of all Grand Cherokee sales this year came in the month of September alone.
Canada’s best-selling American SUVs are in the list below.
