Ford’s second-ranked Escape was 2532 units back of the CR-V. The last utility vehicle to unseat the CR-V – the Toyota RAV4, way back in August of last year – slipped 0.3% to 26,709 units, more than 5000 sales behind the Honda.
The CR-V’s 11% increase is noteworthy for such a high-volume vehicle, but it pales in comparison to the improvements posted by some of the other top-selling SUVs and crossovers.
The fourth-ranked Nissan Rogue jumped 51% to 25,081 units in July. Ford’s Explorer, Police Interceptor-inclusive, shot up 23% to 23,381 July sales.
In all, 16 of the 20 best-selling SUVs and crossovers in America posted improved July sales. Meanwhile, the majority of cars on this month’s list of the 20 best-selling cars posted declining July volume.
