This page is updated monthly with the latest new car inventory data.

Navigating the current car market can be a daunting task, with its varying inventory levels and volatile prices. In this context, knowledge truly is power. A critical piece of this knowledge is understanding the Market Day Supply (MDS).

MDS is a measure of the number of days it would take to sell all of a particular model of car, based on the current sales rate, assuming no additional inventory is added. A high MDS suggests an oversupply, potentially giving buyers leverage for negotiation, while a low MDS might indicate a seller’s market, where negotiating could prove tougher.

Using CarEdge Data, we identified which new cars have the most and least inventory available in February. What we found was shocking. In today’s new car market, inventory ranges from just two weeks of supply, to a nearly two-year supply. Several models have over one year of supply on dealer lots.

Why does inventory matter to car buyers?

Inventory influences negotiability. When there’s a glut of cars, dealers will be more inclined to negotiate with you. Slim pickings? Not so much. This valuable insight can give you an edge in your car buying journey, helping you save money and avoid the hassle.

The Top 10 in February 2024: New Cars With the Highest Inventory

new car inventory numbers 2024

Stellantis appears to be in serious trouble. CDJR brands just can’t seem to sell cars like they used to. This isn’t a new problem, either. Stellantis has led the list of slowest-selling cars for months on end.

These are the new cars, trucks and SUVs with the most inventory right now. The average transaction price of these ten slowest-selling models is $70,277.

In February, Stellantis brands dominate the list for the sixth month in a row. This month, the Dodge Hornet (480 days of supply) and Dodge Charger (477 days of supply) beat the others by a long shot. The Ford Mustang Mach-E climbed to third place, with nearly one year of supply.

Six of the 10 slowest selling cars are Stellantis models. All Stellantis models, not just the ones mentioned here, are highly negotiable right now. However, some CDJR dealers are notorious for resisting negotiation, despite the massive oversupply.

The Maserati Levante, Jaguar F-Type, and Audi e-tron GT show that ultra-luxury cars are selling slowly as high interest rates amplify costs.

There’s BIG potential for deals on any of these cars, but only with negotiation know-how.

The Bottom 10 in February 2024: New Cars With the Lowest Inventory

Fastest-selling new cars in 2024

On the other side of the coin, these are the fastest-selling cars today. In February, we’re seeing some new makes and models on this list. Last month, Toyota dominated. This month, Chevrolet has three models in the top 10.

A few luxury cars are also seeing slim inventory today. But those are low-volume sellers. What’s more alarming is the low inventory among some of the most popular affordable cars on sale today. The Chevrolet models, Kia Carnival, and Kia Rio (discontinued but still popular) are all in high demand, but very short supply.

If you’re shopping for any of these new cars in 2024, you’ll be up against stiff competition and in many cases, greedy dealers.

These are the fastest-selling new cars, trucks and SUVs today. Among the fastest-selling models, the average transaction price is $65,797. That’s about $5,000 less than the slowest selling models.

    How can I access this list directly? Only showing me the top and bottom 10 is not very helpful to me. I would like to see how the other hundred models stack out which will include models I am actually interested in purchasing.

    My husband has been talking to a salesman at Todd Wenzel. And asked for his best out the door price, for a 2023 Denali 1500 sierra. The price is 76,380, less 7,045 Gm employees discount. The salesman gave a price of 69,634.38, included 270.00 doc fees and 30.00 temporary license. My question is was that a good deal or not

    I want a V-6 (non turbo-charged) or a V-8 (naturally aspirated) fuel engine. There are some 2022 SUV models that fit this category, but most have no style. My focal interest is for a mid-size SUV. Any suggestions? I have been browsing for months with no luck.

    Cherry and I just spent the afternoon buying a car, and it turned out to be a long, fruitless endeavor.
    We found a car (Chevy Bolt) within our budget with many of the features we wanted, agreed on a price (about $32,000) at Chevrolet of Fayettville. We produced our driver’s licenses and our proof of insurance and signed the first round of papers with the salesman. After a very long process of gathering information and signing papers, we began the next phase that involved signing many of the same agreements and the whole process came to a complete stop when I was required to sign a paper giving up my right to sue the dealership in a court of law, and instead to bring any disagreement to an arbitrator.
    I wouldn’t sign that paper. As far as I can see, that paper just means that I trust our justice system to make fair decisions and the dealership trusts a private arbitration system, but not the court system.
    That’s a pretty serious problem, and shame on Chevrolet of Fayettville for distrusting our system of justice and coercing us to give up our right to sue in a court of law. They refused to sell me a car without signing that paper and they claimed that all other dealerships would require the same agreement. I don’t believe for a moment that there is no other dealer anywhere that would trust our justice system enough to sell me a car without signing that agreement. Chevrolet of Fayettville chose not to sell me the car.
    So they stood their ground and I stood mine — no deal! Of course, they have their rights and I have mine, but I hope I’m not the only person who will adhere to principle and refuse to sign away my rights for the privilege of over-paying for a car. Think about what this means before you sign a paper like that. I hope you’ll come to the same decision and DON’T SIGN!

      The fact that you would even consider buying GM Electric crap indicates to me that your not very bright or at least, have more than enough knowledge about legal stuff and bery little in car choices. that being said, businesses all over the country have been forcing employees to arbitration, and siriusxm, and directtv and just about everything. Next time refuse to sign away your rights at a Toyota or Honda dealer. Make better choices

    Those graphs were confusing. Not clear which ones were fast or slow selling. Please make it easier to understand.

      Hi Tam, thank you for commenting. The fastest-selling have the lowest inventory ‘market day supply’, and the slowest-selling have the highest inventory ‘market day supply’. Basically, a higher MDS means the cars are sitting on the lot for longer before being sold.

    Interesting that Ford is not in those lists at all.

      Yes, the only reason Ford is not is that Stellantis brands like Jeep and Ram took up most of the list. Ford is not far behind. Ford does have high inventory right now due to slow sales and too much inventory.

    Your October article says this is the first time in a while that Subaru was not in the last of ten least available cars. Except your September list does not include a Subaru. Oops!

    Also, readers should know that just because your list doesn’t include a model, it doesn’t mean you’re going to be able to find that model with your desired options any time soon. I’ve been on a wait list for a Rav4 Hybrid in California at a no mark-up dealership for many months now, and that vehicle hasn’t even been on your least available list the entire time.
