Ford sold 47,764 SUVs and crossovers in July 2012, driving the Blue Oval’s seven-month total up to 353,363 units. That’s up 7% from 330,619 utility vehicle sales in the first seven months of 2011.
How popular are Ford’s utilities? America’s best-selling SUV-only brand, Jeep, the eighth-ranked automaker in July, sold a total of 41,559 SUVs, Patriots, and Compasses last month, 6205 fewer than Ford managed to sell. And it was a good month for Jeep: sales were up 7% year-over-year.

Meanwhile, Chevrolet, which has posted declining Traverse sales this year, sold a total of 274,083 utility vehicles in the first seven months of 2012, up 14% from 239,900 between January and July of 2011. That increase includes the fleet-only Captiva Sport, a vehicle which wasn’t on sale last year but ended 2012’s first seven months as a provider to 21,835 fleet buyers. Excluding that former Saturn Vue, Chevrolet utility vehicle sales rose 5% in the first seven months of 2012.

Mainstream domestic brands aren’t the only sellers of sport-utility vehicles and crossovers, of course. From the carish Juke to the Titan-based Armada, Nissan has sold 195,152 utilities in 2012. Toyota’s 4Runner, FJ Cruiser, Highlander, Land Cruiser, RAV4, and Sequoia combined for 215,631 sales in the first seven months of this year. The best-selling Honda CR-V, in concert with the Pilot and a few Elements, outsold the Toyota utility division by 16,241 units between January and July. And the Hyundai-Kia group found 163,864 buyers for the Santa Fe, Tucson, Veracruz, Sorento, and Sportage.
