November 2014 U.S. SUV And Crossover Sales Rankings – Top 91 Best-Selling SUVs In America – Every SUV Ranked

2015 Lexus NX

The Honda CR-V was not just America’s best-selling utility vehicle in November 2014, it was America’s best-selling non-truck. In other words, no passenger car sold as often as the CR-V in November; not the Honda Accord; not the Toyota Camry.

The CR-V, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4 – America’s three best-selling SUVs – are all on pace to set sales records in calendar year 2014. Slow down, one of them already has. The RAV4 eclipsed its 2013 banner year before November even began. 

Within the first few days of December, Honda will break the CR-V’s one-year-old record. Ford only needs to sell 15,384 Escapes in December to break its record, also set last year. Ford has been selling at least that many Escapes on a monthly basis for nearly four years now.

One new product was added to the list of SUVs and crossovers in November. Lexus’s NX, a sub-RX Audi Q5 rival, sold its first 22 copies at the end of November. Expect to see at least 2000 monthly NX sales in the near future.

This post was updated at 9:55 AM AT on 12.08.2014 to reflect 30 additional Subaru Tribeca sales. * Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model’s total, not in addition to the model’s total.
^ Escalade here does not include sales of the EXT, which is shown with pickup trucks.
Rather than listing the 500L with the Mini Paceman and Countryman in these SUV/crossover rankings, it’s with cars in large part because it is not available with all-wheel-drive. The placement of numerous crossovers often prompts disagreement, but consider the vehicle type’s name: crossover. By its very definition, it crosses over from one category into another. The very act of calling, for example, the Toyota Venza a car or a utility vehicle requires ignorance of the fact that the Venza (or Outback, Crosstour, Encore, Countryman, 500L) is a square peg that can’t be squeezed through a round hole.
