It’s probably no surprise, but the two newest trucks on the block are also the hottest sellers.

According to PickupTrucks.com, extended cab versions of the aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 were moving into and out of dealerships in just 10 days in January, while crew cab models only hung around four days longer than that.

Shoppers also took a mere 17 and 20 days to scoop up the extended and crew cab versions of the Chevrolet Colorado, which passed the Nissan Frontier to move into second place in midsize pickup sales. The Toyota Tacoma extended cab wasn’t far behind in fifth place at 21 days.

Those numbers compare to an industry average of 42 days. January was particularly strong for pickups, with sales up 21.9 percent compared to last year.

Getting dusty at the bottom of the list was the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Extended Cab at 105 days, so but that’s nothing compared to the slowest-selling car. The high performance Nissan GT-R may be one of the quickest cars in the world, but it’s been taking 260 days to find someone who cares.
