U.S. Ford Explorer sales dropped 4% in March 2017, the first year-over-year Explorer decline since October of last year. Nevertheless, the only SUVs/crossovers to outsell the Explorer in the United States in March 2017 were four compact crossovers.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee finished March 3050 sales behind the Explorer, America’s best-selling three-row vehicle. The Toyota Highlander, second in three-row sales, jumped 21% but finished March 5366 sales behind the Ford.

3192 of the Explorer’s 23,424 March 2017 U.S. sales were produced by the Police Interceptor Utility. That made March the second-best month in the Explorer Police Interceptor’s history.
Up a notch from compact crossovers but lacking the third row of the Explorer and Highlander, the Grand Cherokee reported a fourth consecutive year of March improvement.
Subaru Outback sales jumped 13%, the 37th consecutive month in which Outback volume climbed into five-digit territory.
