It took a long time to get here, but Ford finally released a second-generation Edge, its bigger two-row utility vehicle. Canadian sales increased 11% in June 2015 to an all-time record high of 2885 units in June 2015, enough to make the Edge Canada’s fifth-best-selling SUV/crossover last month.
Incidentally, the Edge ranked fourth art this time last year, but many of the Edge’s slightly smaller rivals posted bigger gains last month, including a handful of more popular utilities from Toyota, Nissan, and Honda. (The Edge ranked 11th in the 2014 calendar year.)
Nevertheless, in a dreadful month that saw Ford brand sales tumble 14%, the Edge’s improvement was a real bright spot. Even the Ford Escape, the brand’s best-selling non-pickup truck and Canada’s best-selling SUV overall, posted an 18%, 1091-unit loss last month. The Edge and the Escape were joined by the twelfth-ranked Explorer on this list of Canada’s 20 best-selling SUVs and crossovers in June 2015.
Jeep landed three utility vehicles in the top 15 alongside another FCA crossover, Dodge’s Journey. There are three products from the Hyundai-Kia conglomerate, two GM products, two Nissans, two Toyotas, and single entries from Mazda, Subaru, and Volkswagen.
