10. Lincoln MKX: 62.2 Days
These days, Lincoln’s luxury crossover is called the Nautilus. The company’s previous twin-grille design language wasn’t extremely popular, which is likely part of the reason why used examples sit on dealer lots for 62.2 days on average.
9. Ford Taurus: 62.6 Days
The big Blue Oval sedan won’t be around much longer, at least as new-car inventory. There are plenty in the used market though, and they generally take just a bit longer to sell than the MKX we saw previously. Chalk it up to a rather dated design and sales trends that are seeing sedan popularity drop like the proverbial stone in water.
8. Mazda CX-9: 62.9 Days
As far as three-row SUVs are concerned, the CX-9 is a fun machine. Unfortunately, most shoppers in the three-row segment are more interested in practicality and capability, which Mazda sacrifices to a degree for its trademark zoom-zoominess. That could be why most examples go unsold for nearly 63 days in the used market.
7. Cadillac XT5: 64.2 Days
In a sea of cookie-cutter crossovers, the XT5 does an admirable job of standing out. We think most people like the Caddy’s style, but our time behind the wheel was a bit disappointing compared to its luxury competitors. We can easily see why it’s a slow mover on dealer lots, especially if sales managers are stubborn when it comes to pricing. In short, there are better options unless you can get the XT5 at a deep discount.
6. Ford Flex: 64.3 Days
There’s no question that the Flex is a love-it-hate-it vehicle, and that likely contributes to its 64.3 average days spent on sale. That's too bad, because the boxy shape that some people hate makes it a terrifically spacious people mover. It is a dated platform, however, and it can also be quite pricey in certain trims.
5. Land Rover Discovery Sport: 66.1 Days
The posh SUV isn’t lacking in looks and capability, but its price point keeps it rather high compared to similar-sized luxury competition. And we must be honest – there’s the Land Rover reputation for sketchy reliability that befalls the Discovery Sport, which likely keeps potential buyers at bay as well.
4. Porsche 911: 67.5 Days
One of the world’s best sports cars is number four on the list? The problem here isn’t quality or capability, but price. Buyers in the market for such a machine might have trouble justifying a used 911 when other brand-spanking-new performance cars are available for the same price.
3. Buick LaCrosse: 67.5 Days
Tied with the Porsche 911 at nearly 70 days, the Buick LaCrosse isn’t competing with new cars at a high price point. Rather, it’s a sedate sedan simply trying to compete in an SUV-dominated market, and the LaCrosse just doesn’t have much to offer potential buyers that can't be found in better packages.
2. Buick Regal: 67.6 Days
Going by the numbers, we reckon a Buick Regal will sell approximately 54 minutes after the LaCrosse it was parked next to for 67 days. Like the LaCrosse, the Regal is simply a sedan struggling to compete in the SUV world. That's unfortunate because it’s a fabulous car, but Buick languished as GM’s retirement division for so long that potential younger buyers may not give the Regal a chance before pulling the trigger on something else.
1. Porsche Cayenne: 67.8 Days
Is it a funny coincidence that the slowest-selling used car on this list also happens to be one of the fastest SUVs in the world? Perhaps, but the Cayenne suffers the same high-price problem shared by the 911. It might be hard to justify a used Cayenne when new luxury SUVs with similar options and amenities are available. A secondary factor might be the Cayenne's styling which, though not as polarizing as the Ford Flex, still has plenty of critics.
