It's hard to buy a car right now, whether new or used, thanks to the global semiconductor shortage. That doesn't mean that people aren't still doing it, though, and the vehicle that's moving off of dealer lots the quickest right now almost definitely isn't what you think it is, according to a recent study from iSeeCars.com.

You probably think that it'd be something affordable and practical like a Honda or Toyota , but no, the car in the US that spends the least amount of time on dealer lots as of May 2021 is none other than the Mercedes-Benz G-Class SUV.

E-TRON SUV for China - Audi Concept Shanghai

 E-TRON SUV for China - Audi Concept Shanghai Audi presents four world premieres in China: the Audi A6 E-Tron Concept, the Audi Q5L the Audi A7L and another SUV. © NewSpress While the three first mentioned with more or little a lot of tamtam have been revealed, the Audi SUV does not only notice a shadowy one on the Audi booth. Also in the current press release of the Ingolstadt is Lapidar to read, it is dealing with "An still in camouflage-filled SUV study named Audi Concept Shanghai".

That's right. A big box on wheels with a six-figure price tag takes the cake. Dealers just can't keep them on their lots. The iSeeCars.com study says a new G-Wagen takes just 9.4 days to sell and has an average sale price of $174,887. For comparison's sake, the wildly popular (and totally great) Kia Telluride takes 11.6 days to sell, on average.

Why is the G-Wagen so popular? Well, the short answer is that it always has been, even when it was an objectively bad car to drive on-road, people just had to have them. They're a status symbol too, thanks to their popularity with celebrities. Finally, the current G-Wagen is the best it's ever been, thanks to a massive update in 2018 that brought much better comfort, steering, and technology.

2022 Mercedes-AMG SL-Class Bodyshell Revealed

  2022 Mercedes-AMG SL-Class Bodyshell Revealed The work that went into bodyshell of the upcoming 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL-Class shows just how much time has passed since the last SL-Class debuted. The bodyshell of the upcoming 2022 Mercedes-AMG SL-Class will feature significant gains in rigidity and torsional stiffness.The new SL-Class replaces a model that debuted in 2011, and is expected on sale by the end of the year as a 2022 model.The SL-Class is now in the Mercedes-AMG lineup, and is expected to receive two inline-sixes and a twin-turbo V8 from Affalterbach at launch.

The Chevy Corvette comes in second place, and its popularity makes sense too. It's also an aspirational vehicle, and continual production issues have meant that the C8 is in short supply most of the time. Couple that with its extremely attractive starting price, and those things just aren't going to sit on dealer lots for long --  just 9.5 days, to be specific.

Now, to be clear, that doesn't mean that the G-Class is America's best-selling vehicle right now. Far from it, in fact. It just suggests there's significant demand for these models -- demand that Benz's supply pipeline likely can't satisfy. It also suggests that if you want one, you're probably not going to be able to score a deal on one, because another buyer is just around the corner. Either way, this is an impressive showing for Mercedes' iconic 4x4.
