25 Best-Selling SUVS In America Of All Sizes in Q1

Toyota Rav4

It is good to see the SUV segment continuing to do well. Typically, I look at how vehicles did in the current quarter versus the same quarter a year ago, but Q1 of 2020 was decimated with Covid-19 plant closures, dealership closures, and a paralyzed public, trying to make sense of the pandemic.

This year brings us a completely different set of issues with shortages in many areas that have closed many assembly plants. However, as we started the first quarter of 2021, inventory levels were adequate. It has just been the past few weeks that we’ve seen inventory really getting critically short.

RAV4 continues to dominate all SUV sales, with Honda CR-V in a distant second place. No real surprises on the list except Chevy Suburban broke into the top 10. I’d have bet money the Tahoe would have been there before Suburban. The new Ford Bronco Sport snuck in the list at #25.
