Cars.com has cobbled together a list of the top ten fastest and slowest selling cars in the US market these days and, shocker, the best selling cars are largely all-new or recently refreshed.

Fastest Selling Vehicles Based On Time On Lot

Despite a miserable economy, eroding consumer confidence, financing issues and lingering fears of another gas price spike, the best selling cars are all fairly expensive and skew towards crossovers (with the exception of the Fit), trucks, and SUVs. Not a single hybrid on the list. It's almost as if Americans prefer bigger cars that maybe don't get the best gas mileage. Holy Toledo! Stop the presses! Head over to Cars.com for the top ten biggest sales losers.

The Venza being on the hot list makes us silently weep for humanity.
