What are the best-selling SUVs in America?

At the end of a difficult year like 2020, auto industry sales figures certainly can’t be positive, taken in their entirety: the industry has heavily left behind what was good achieved in 2019, with losses on the following year approaching 20%. A good fourth quarter was seen, for certain models belonging to those more desirable market niches, such as SUV vehicles, which constitutes a large segment. Suffice it to say that the 25 most popular models in this segment have in fact managed to contain the drop in sales to 12.7% over the previous year. So here are the best-selling SUVs in America in 2020, according to the numbers released in the automakers’ sales reports.

Completely revised 2019 looks, better performance, improved capability, and new state-of-the-art standard safety equipment (automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning).
