CR-V sales plunged 20% in November; RAV4 sales jumped 30%. As a result, the RAV4 outsold the second-ranked CR-V by 1437 units. Woth the Ford Escape’s 19% year-over-year decline, the RAV4 also moved into second place in the year-to-date SUV/crossover sales race.
The Escape is rare among top-selling utilities in 2015, with a modest 1% downgrade through the first eleven months of the year in a booming SUV market. Ford says the company’s Friends & Neighbors sales event in November didn’t lure customers to the Escape, Fiesta, Focus, and Fusion. As a result, Escape sales slid to a 10-month low.
Among America’s 20 top-selling SUVs and crossovers in November 2015, the Lexus RX was the only premium brand contender. The Nissan Rogue’s 50% year-over-year improvement was tops.
