The best-selling SUV in America in February was once again the Ford Escape, its second such victory in as many months. The Honda CR-V, 2012’s leading utility vehicle, ranked second with a 16.5% decline that brought it dangerously close to the third-place Chevrolet Equinox.
Lexus reported a 20% increase in RX sales in February. That was more than enough to land the RX in the top 20, the only premium brand vehicle to have done so since December.
Nissan set a record in February Pathfinder volume. Nissan’s second-biggest utility vehicle still trailed the Ford Explorer by 10,377 units, the Honda Pilot by 2600 sales, and the Toyota Highlander by 2296, not to mention numerous other small and midsize SUVs and crossovers. 4.6% of Explorer volume stemmed from the Police Interceptor Utility.
