Ford has sold more Escapes during those four months, 21,519, than all but two other utility vehicles have over the last eight months.
Those two next-best-selling SUVs/crossovers, the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, trail the Escape by large margins, as well, though the gap between the duo is now down to just 45 units.
Only five of Canada’s 20 best-selling SUVs posted year-over-year sales declines in August. The Nissan Rogue, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Chevrolet Trax all improved their Canadian sales totals by at least 50%. The Grand Cherokee, in fact, doubled its volume compared with August 2013.
Historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these best-selling SUVs and crossovers can always be accessed through the dropdown menu at GCBC’s Sales Stats page, and for those not viewing the mobile version of this site, near the top right of this page, as well. GoodCarBadCar has already published the list of Canada’s best-selling trucks in August and will shortly publish a list of Canada’s most popular cars.
