20 Top-Selling SUVs In All Segments In May 2021

20 Top-Selling SUVs In All Segments In May 2021

Again, numbers will look a little skewed versus Covid-ravaged May of 2020, but one other thing is clear, too: the microchip shortage has been rough on Toyota and Ford, which in some cases, sold more SUVs during the May 2020 pandemic than this May, due to a lack of inventory.

While the SUV market remains strong for the automakers that can still build vehicles, it is hard to imagine how good the auto industry could be doing were it not for this chip blip. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen CR-V outsell RAV4.
