Say Goodbye To These Vehicles After 2015




A list of brand new vehicles is published each January as automakers ready for the New Year with hopes of new sales. But as new vehicles are unveiled, there are always old models that are discontinued. Automakers discontinue vehicles for a variety of reasons, sometimes an engine stops being produced, thus negating the model, other times manufacturers want to streamline, or there’s a change in ownership and, of course, some models just don’t sell. Insider Car News (www.insidercarnews.com) recently published a list of 10 models that won’t be manufactured after 2015. Here is a list of those models that won’t be seen again.

 

Chevrolet SS

Slow U.S. sales, coupled with the cessation of Holden Motors in Australia, led to this discontinuation.

 

Dodge Grand Caravan

Now owned by Fiat, Chrysler has trimmed its minivan offerings to only the Chrysler Town & Country.

 

Acura TL

The TL is an underperforming model in Acura’s lineup.

 

Cadillac CTS-V Wagon

While the CTS will stick of around, lack of interest in the wagon model lead to its discontinuation.

 

Toyota FJ Cruiser

This was only ever slated as a one-generation model.

 

Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet

The 2015 Nissan Murano has an all-new body, but the CrossCabriolet was never a popular version.

 
Jaguar XK

Jaguar’s F-Type model is much more successful than the XK.

 

Nissan Cube

The cube is a slow-selling Nissan model.

 

Honda Fit EV

Honda only offered the Fit EV on a lease basis.

 

Dodge Durango

There are rumors that the Durango could simply shift brands and become a new, three-row SUV in Jeep’s lineup, but that has yet to be confirmed.
