Apart from a switcheroo between the Ford Escape and Chevrolet Equinox and the Buick Enclave vacating the spot now held by the Chevrolet Suburban, America’s Top 10 Best-Selling American SUVs list is exactly the same as it was last month. Surprising it may be for its exactness, but really, if you had to guess which Detroit-based utility vehicles were going to fill the top ten, you just might name these ten over and over.
If there was going to be a battle General Motors wanted to win and could win, it’d be the Equinox beating up on the Escape for the first time in… ever? Strip away talk of dimensions, discounts, and retail vs. fleet sales and what you have is the Chevrolet Equinox selling 450 more times than the Ford Escape in November 2010 in their home market. The 2011 Chevrolet Equinox has a base price of $22,745.
Of course, true success is seen in the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. At this time last year, the Grand Cherokee was a forgettable SUV with strange headlights and poor sales. Now it’s America’s #3 American SUV for the second month in a row thanks to a sales jump of 256%.
