Full-size SUV U.S. Sales – 1st Half of 2023

This table covers all full-size truck-based three-row SUV sales in the United States. It’s no surprise that the Chevy Tahoe is leading the way and growing sales. GM has been dominating this segment for years and decades. GMC Yukon (and Yukon XL) are also growing their number in 2023 – when compared to the same period last year.

It’s noteworthy that the Ford Expedition reclaims 3rd place with a huge 72.3% sales growth. The Nissan Armada is finding a lot more new owners, and the all-new 2023+ Toyota Sequoia is coming into its own with huge sales numbers compared to where it was before.
