2019 Jeep® Grand Cherokee Summit

April 2019 – The Best-Selling SUVs In America – Every SUV Ranked

The GCBC Analysis

Before we dig into the data that we do have, it’s important to note that Ford and GM are reporting quarterly now and are not represented here. FCA will join the quarterly reporting soon, but the company’s vehicles are included this month. 

With that said, with the data that we do have, the segment was up roughly 12,000 units from this month last year. That’s a significant increase. The top four models all saw sales percentage increases for the month when compared to this month last year. Leading the pack was the Nissan Rogue with an increase of 3.55 percent. 

It wasn’t all good news for the segment. Some models didn’t see good results. The Jeep Wrangler was down almost 25 percent, the Jeep Cherokee was down over 13 percent, and the Mazda CX-5 dropped over 15 percent. Several other models also saw sales decreases. However, on the whole, the data looked pretty positive.

All SUV Sales by Quarter

Important note: Both Ford, GM and FCA have switched to quarterly reporting, making it more difficult to accurately gauge sales. We won’t have results to report for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Ford, Lincoln, Jeep, Chrysler, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Dodge and Ram until the end of each quarter.
