Full-sized SUV sales in the US were up 43% in the first half of 2021, beating the overall market up 29%. Some of the biggest players in this class have been redesigned in 2020, which is one of the drivers of this strong growth, in which only a single nameplate is down on last year and only one other is up by a single digit. The class now makes up 3.1% of the total US car market, up from 2.8% in the first half of 2020. Luxury models slightly lose share of the segment at 27.9%, down from 30.4% in the same period last year, and also down from 28.3% in all of 2020. The class leader loses market share of the segment, as the Chevrolet Tahoe is up just 40% despite las year’s redesign. It stays ahead of the Ford Expedition, up 47% and the GMC Yukon, up 72% on last year. The Tahoe’s extended version Chevrolet Suburban is up 48% while luxury sibling model Cadillac Escalade sees its sales almost double to extend its leadership of the luxury part of the segment. The Nissan Armada loses 1.5 percentage points of share while its luxury sibling Infiniti QX80 is hte only loser of the class at -17%. The BMW X7 outsold the Mercedes-Benz GLS by 7 deliveries in Q2 but remains behind year-to-date. The X7 does move ahead of the Lincoln Navigator. The Range Rover is up just 9% as it’s due for a redesign, while the three last places are still Toyota products, with the ancient Toyota Sequoia distancing the Land Cruiser which is in a bit of a revival ever since the brand announced the legendary nameplate’s departure from the North American market. The LC’s luxury sibling Lexus LX remains the least popular large SUV in the United States.
