As Chevrolet clears out copies of the departing first-generation Traverse, the big Bowtie crossover jumped 17% to 8218 units. The new, smaller GMC Acaia rose 65% to 8899 units. The Hyundai Santa Fe, Mazda CX-9, Nissan Pathfinder, and Toyota Highlander all posted big gains, as well.
We’ve adjusted the way we display midsize SUVs and crossovers to bring the Subaru Outback – a true tall wagon – and the Jeep Wrangler – the majority of which aren’t two-door models – into the mix. With the Honda Crosstour, Nissan Xterra, Toyota Venza, and Toyota FJ Cruiser dead, they’re no longer pictured at the bottom of this post. Is it a perfect formula? No, it’s unlikely that a two-door Jeep Wrangler is routinely cross-shopped with a Toyota Highlander.
