The car market is so wild right now. I’m glad I got my ride right before the pandemic hit. So, what’s the hottest ride in Michigan right now?

Looking at more than 1.3 million new and used cars sold in May 2021, iSeeCars.com named the new and used cars that were in the highest demand and sold the quickest from dealers in each state and major city.

Detroit’s fastest-selling new vehicle, according to the study, is the Jeep Wrangler 4xe. Our fastest-selling used vehicle is the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Michigan’s fastest-selling new car is the Toyota Tacoma. Our fastest-selling used car is the Kia Sedona.

I’m happy to see the Jeep at No. 1 in Detroit, but for the Michigan picks, personally, I wish those had been GM, Ford or Dodge vehicles. My grandpa worked for GM his whole life, and I’ve only purchased GM cars, so they have a special place in my heart. Hey, maybe GM could bring back the Pontiac line and see if that brings them one of the fastest-selling cars in the area. A girl can dream, right?
