A blizzard hitting the Northeast didn't slow down car sales in January. In fact, the time it took to sell a new car was identical to January 2014's rate of 42 days. As we've noticed during winter months — with or without blizzards — SUVs and trucks are hot.
Fifteen of the top 20 fastest-sellers were SUVs or trucks, and there was an equal mix of luxury and mainstream models. Subaru continues to be popular, with four spots in the top 20, and Land Rover ruled too as luxury buyers bought four of its models at a quick rate. Of course the entire country wasn't impacted by snow, and those places must be where folks were snapping up the redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang convertible.
