Movers and Losers: August's SUVs


Despite the general perception that nobody wants a new SUV, there are a lot of utility vehicles moving off lots much faster than the industry average 70 days. While three of August’s movers were hybrids, many were also large and/or expensive models. Besides the Lexus LX 570, though, none could really be considered a gas-guzzler. That can’t be said for the Losers.

I guess renaming the Freestyle the "Taurus X" really did the trick???


Nice work the Ford Escape, hybrid 10 days, gas 17 days. It is a pity it is so difficult to get a manual with control cruise.

The problem of the TaurusX is that it is a great car, but it is in the middle of everything, SW, SUV,?
