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.
