Big SUV Sales Decline, But There is Still Hope (Sales Report)

Dodge Durango SRT vs Ford Raptor: Super Ike Gauntlet

While all full-size SUVs on this list declined in sales when compared to last year, they are still selling in significant numbers. Dodge Durango tops the list, as GM is no longer reporting their sales results monthly (they will report quarterly).

Ford says that the new Expedition is still ramping up in sales, especially in direct to consumer sales (not fleets). It will be interesting to see what happens over the next several months.

The Nissan Armada had a great launch of the new 2017 model, but it is now struggling to increase sales further.

We will see how these sales stack up against the segment-leading GM truck-based SUVs in about a month.
