fastest and slowest selling trucks iSeeCars.png

The research team at iSeeCars.com has determined which used truck sells the fastest, and which sells the slowest on used vehicle lots. Neither is a GM product. The group looked at the sales data for over 4 million used vehicles to make its determination. The overall average number of days a pickup sits on a used car lot is about 51 days. Cars and SUVs tend to move a bit quicker, around 47 days on average. Every GM product is a bit slower than the average, but not an outlier. The Nissan Titan is the dog in this group. The Honda Ridgeline is the fastest-selling. iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly, says the reason may be that the Ridgeline “..ceased production between 2014 and 2017, so there aren’t as many in the used car marketplace, which drives up demand.” Ly says the Titan has a poor reliability record, which may help explain its longer than usual stay on dealer lots.

The mean is 48.8 days.

 

If we throw out the Titan, the mean is 46.5 days.

 

So not a ton of variance from top to bottom, but definitely significant when multiplied by the number of trucks sold.

 

Anecdotally, when shopping for my current CPO half-ton truck, my dollar went furthest with Chevy.

Is the HONDA RIDGELINE Really Even a Truck? :troll:

Poor reliability on the Titan eh?  I am somewhat surprised.  I thought it was a fairly solid truck (the previous gen)

I have seen maybe 2 Honda Ridgeline "Trucks" in the past 6 months around here in KC on the streets.

However, I pass Dozens of GM, Ford, RAM trucks daily.

The chart above clearly reflects inventory of these vehicles.

Of course a make and model with fewer units available will disappear from a lot sooner....

That Ridgeline is awful looking. It's a minivan with the back seats removed and the top cut off masquerading as a truck. There are two in our neighborhood. An old one and one of the new ones. Those new ones are horrendous IMO.

Amen! 

It sort of reminds me of these blasts from the past:

Wonder how that compares to past years?  

 

My Silverado took 3 weeks to get from the factory to Silao, Mexico to the dealer here in the Midwest.  Supposedly went on a train all the way north to Chicago and then back south again (not sure that's cost effective) to KC via semi trailer.  Then it sat on the lot for 87 days until I bought it.

I’m offended they put my Silverado on the same list as Honda Ridgline!   I see my therapist in a couple days, I will be discussing this and be requesting stronger medication. 😂 

 Good grief!

Actually to be more accurate, the Ridgeline is identical to a Honda Pilot from the B-pillar forward; much like how the GMT900 Avalanche was identical to a Tahoe from the B-Pillar forward.

      The 2014 Chevy Malibu sedan and Equinox crossover are near the top of the list of popular high-depreciation cars in a study done by iSeeCars.com. The Malibu's depreciation is 1.23-times greater than the average for vehicles in general. The study finds that the average price of a 2014 Malibu is just $14,622, reflecting a 43% depreciation over just three years. The Equinox is not far behind the Malibu with an average price of just $17,200, reflecting a 41% depreciation over three years. These are cars still under the original GM warranty.


      Even more incredible is the deal that shoppers of used Cadillac CTS sedans should expect. After just three years, the CTS is worth less than half its original value. iSeeCars pegs the average 2014 CTS price at just $27,537. That is a whopping 52% depreciation rate reflecting a depreciation that is about one and a half times that of the average vehicle.

      Silverado and Sierra both hold their value better than the industry average. After three years, they have depreciated roughly 29% compared to the average of about 35%. See the full study at this link.
