Toyota’s RAV4 continues to be the leader of the utility vehicle pack, claiming top spot for a seventh consecutive month thanks to a 1400-unit victory over the second-ranked Ford Escape in May.
Although the U.S. auto industry struggled to match May 2015’s volume because of a shortened auto sales month – there were two fewer selling days, an 8% time deficit – the RAV4 and Escape were joined by 9 utility vehicles in the top 20 which outpaced their May 2015 auto sales performance.
