For the eleventh consecutive time, the Ford Escape was Canada’s monthly sales leader among SUVs and crossovers. Escape sales shot up 14% to 2750, creating a 537-unit gap between the Ford and Honda’s CR-V.
The third-ranked Toyota RAV4 suffered its first year-over-year decline since January of last year. The RAV4 leads the Honda CR-V in the year-to-date rankings.
Buick’s very soft soft-roader, the Encore, recorded its second-best Canadian sales month in the model’s 14-month history, enough to outsell the Ford Explorer and GMC Terrain; enough to find the 18th position on this list of the 20 top-selling SUVs and crossovers. The Encore’s Chevrolet Trax twin was up 14% to 374 units.
Jeep’s Cherokee, Wrangler, and Grand Cherokee were Canada’s seventh, eighth, and 16th-best-selling utility vehicles in February 2014. Only Ford positioned as many utilities in the top 20 last month, although the Hyundai-Kia tag team also combined for three, with the Santa Fe Sport, Tucson, and Sorento, and General Motors’ Equinox, Encore, and Terrain did the same.
