Dodge Hornet –

The new Alfa Romeo Tonale-based crossover was supposed to be the vehicle to bridge the gap between internal combustion (ICE) powered vehicles and the brand’s path towards electrification thanks to being the brand’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) with its R/T offering.

Unfortunately, the formula for Hornet is not working. The Italian-built Dodge currently shows a 646-day supply of inventory, waiting to find a new home. Several issues are facing the Hornet at the moment. While the Hornet does feature best-in-class performance numbers and standard all-wheel-drive (AWD), that C-UV segment has never been one that prides itself on performance. Instead, most customers looking for a C-UV want something based on value. The Hornet is one of the pricier vehicles in its class, and the data shows that it has an average transaction price of $42,093.

It’s no secret that Dodge needs a few high-volume mainstream vehicles to impact the brand. After discontinuing the brand’s volume vehicles (Grand Caravan and Journey) in 2020, the brand focused everything on the Charger, Challenger, and Durango. Without its high-volume mainstream offerings, Dodge’s U.S. sales have fallen from 422,886 units in 2019 (Grand Caravan and Journey making up 197,334 of those units) to just 199,458 units in 2023.

Fiat 500X –

While the Hornet might be the newest vehicle on the list, the aging Fiat 500X has been ranked second. The 500X, which was dropped from North America for 2024, currently holds a 558-market-day supply on lots. According to the data provided by CarEdge, only 46 units have been sold in the past 45 days.

The 500X, a sibling of the Jeep® Renegade, is one of the few affordable vehicles left on Stellantis North America dealer lots. With an average transaction price of $29,786, those looking for a good deal on a compact crossover might be able to score one on a 500X.

Maserati Levante –

The last Stellantis vehicle to be on the top-10 list is the Maserati Levante. The E-segment luxury SUV has never been a strong seller in the U.S., however, the Levante is truly showing its age against the competition. Maserati just released the final run of high-performance V8 models, as the Italian luxury marque shifts towards electrification.

Looking at the numbers the Levante currently has a 333-day supply of vehicles on dealer lots in the U.S., when you break that down by current sales and the 770 units of inventory. Keep in mind, the Levante is a luxury SUV with a $97,396 average transaction price, placing it out of the reach of many.
