This week we look at a very popular segment, mid-sized SUVs, from the automakers that report sales monthly.
Toyota Highlander beat out the Ford Explorer for the top spot, although both were down from a year ago. Subaru Forester scored the largest increase from a year ago, while Hyundai Palisade took the biggest loss. One could speculate the chips went to the Santa Fe during production since there does not seem to be a lack of demand for either Palisade or Kia Telluride.
