Most Popular New And Used SUVs

January 27, 2011

Kelly Blue Book ( is the resource that I use to establish used car values. It's also a valuable resource for new car information. KBB recorded over 30 million pricing reports last month on all kinds of vehicles. With this many searches, it soon becomes clear which vehicles are on the minds of car buyers. It's particularly useful when KBB breaks their figures down to just the searches of sport utility vehicles (SUVs).

Top Ten New SUV Searches

It's interesting to note that as the price of gas rises, the most searched new SUVs on Kelly Blue Book include many of those known for their fuel economy. The list begins with Toyota's RAV4 and includes two other Toyota models, along with two from Honda. Here's the full list of these 2011 models:

1.       Toyota RAV4

2.       Jeep Grand Cherokee

3.       Toyota 4Runner

4.       Jeep Wrangler

5.       Honda CR-V

6.       Chevy Tahoe

7.       Toyota Highlander

8.       Honda Pilot

9.       Ford Explorer

10.     Lexus RX

Top Ten Used SUV Searches

The new SUV list boasts a wide selection of models and manufacturers. This does not happen with the top ten pre-owned SUV list. Instead, the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer dominate the list:

1.       2007 Chevy Tahoe

2.       2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee

3.       2002 Ford Explorer

4.       2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

5.       2004 Ford Explorer

6.       2003 Ford Explorer

7.       2007 Jeep Wrangler

8.       2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee

9.       2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

10.     Chevy  Trailblazer

It's obvious from this list that the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ford Explorer continue to be sought-after favorites of pre-owned SUV buyers around the country.
