    25 Best-Selling SUVS Of All Sizes August 2021

    SUV sales in August 2021 actually fell from August 2020 sales, at least from those automakers that report on a monthly basis.  It’s a pretty fair guess that even if Ford, GM, and Stellantis had reported, the end result would likely be the same.  The microchip shortage seems to have finally had a big impact on sales.

    Year-to-date SUV sales, however, are substantially higher through eight months than they were through August 2020.  For the year, the Toyota RAV4 holds a 20,000 unit lead over the Honda CR-V, but the CR-V is gaining ground, up 40% this year while the RAV4 is up only 12%.

    We will have a better overall picture at the beginning of October when we can look at numbers from all the automakers.
