10 Cars That Are Being Discontinued After 2015

 
Advertisements:

Styling fads come and go, technology comes and goes, and buyer needs are constantly changing. These are all the reasons why the automotive world is constantly evolving. When automakers become complacent and live off of past success, they eventually learn what the now-defunct Saturn learned: change or die.

This constant changing is also why we see so many different cars coming and going each year. As new model years roll around, buyers can see dozens of old cars disappear and be replaced by a dozen all-new cars. Understandably, this can all get rather confusing.

To help you get a grasp on what cars are checking out for 2015, InsiderCarNews.com has put together a list of the 10 most notable cars that won’t be around after 2015. Some of these cars are leaving to simplify confusing lineups, while others simply don’t make great business sense. However, there is one vehicle that won’t live beyond 2015 that has no reason to go anywhere other than the fact that its parent company obviously wants to shake things up a bit.

1. Chevrolet SS

On paper, the Chevy SS was a hit. It had four doors, 415 horsepower and required little engineering work because it was simply a rebadged Holden Commodore imported from Australia. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case as only 2,166 units have found garages to call home as of October 2014. On top of slow sales, GM has decided to cease Holden operations in Australia starting in 2017, meaning the SS must die too or GM needs to find a way to produce the SS in another country. The latter simply won’t happen, and the 2015 model year will be the last for the SS.

    I’m not surprised that Chevy is canning the SS, they made it the representative car of the Sprint Car Series in Nascar, but I never understood why they would do such a thing with the Nascar motto of Win Sunday, Sell Monday, when the SS was only available in very limited amounts in dealers’ showrooms here in the states. People usually don’t want to have to order and wait months for a car like the SS. Had they kept some stock here I bet the sales numbers would have greatly differed.

      Chevy released a $45k+ performance sedan in an economy that even those who claim has recovered admit is recovering sluggishly. I wonder why they’re not selling. Morons. Now, if they could find a place in the Northern Hemisphere to build it, build more of them, and cut the price by $10k, it would be a bigger seller than the Impala.

        I thought I had read that GM was going to bring production of the SS to the states, and build them alongside the next gen Camaro. That might make is possible to cut the price of an SS- or whatever they want to call it- by $10k and offer different options & configurations of that same 4 door platform.

    The SS was a rebadged Pontiac G8, a great car with a strong cult following. After Pontiac got axed in GM’s restructuring, they brought it back as the SS. But here is why it didn’t sell.

    (1) The G8 had sexy Pontiac styling, people often mistook it for a BMW with its side profile and twin grille, the SS looks like a Malibu. If GM has spent a bit on money on a front end panel and hood to give it more of a Camaro look, things could have been different. Even a nickel for Camaro taillights would have helped.

    (2) GM didn’t keep the car updated, a 6 year old game plan won’t cut it. The LS2 engine had only 415 hp and terrible gas mileage. The LT1 engine paired with a 8 speed would provide much better gas mileage (no guzzler tax) and 460 hp, which is needed to be competitive with the Charger SRT8’s 485 hp.

    (3) The SS cost too much. The G8GT was a $33K car fully loaded, the G8GXP, which is virtually identical to the SS, cost $37K. For the $47K this car cost, you were competing against the Charger SRT8, which has its own distinctive grille and a 485 hp V8, and starting this year, and 8 speed automatic.

    So GM was asking people to pay top dollar for a musclecar that was light on horsepower but thirsty, and anonymous on the road when buyers want a car that gets noticed. While the SS had vastly better handing than the Charger, that was not enough. GM has turbocharged V8 versions of the Commodore it sells in Australia, why didn’t they send one of those 550-600 hp engines with the SS?

    Dodge gives the lessons on how to do it right. The 707hp Charger Hellcat will never sell in large numbers, but it gets enormous amounts of free press, and plenty of people that come in to see it will leave with a V8 Charger RT or SRT. The Charger’s styling is distinctive, and the SRT pricing is more reasonable, while the RT is a absolute bargain.

    Right now Dodge OWNS the musclecar image. GM has to try much harder to play in this game. I think they should consider reviving Pontiac as a high performance division to compete with Dodge. At the very least, any Chevy that tries to play in this game needs distinctive, macho styling and the best GM has to offer in terms of performance.

        Pontiac’s downfall was it’s stylings. To the basic consumer, every model looked the same including a lack luster styling of the re-launched GTO. When everyone else was starting to go retro muscle with stylings the GTO just become another Pontiac with a pointy front end.

      Nov 8, 2014 at 3:40 pm

      I agree with your comments. I was very interested in purchasing a 2014 SS but the cost was outrageous and the SS did not look as good as my G8. I purchased a 2009 G8 without all the goodies and it cost me 30k, the SS costs 44k which includes a $1,300 gas guzzler tax. I believe that GM made a big mistake by loading up the car with all the options and in essence priced the car out of people are willing to pay and installing a motor that will meet the EPA reguirements. I believe that pontiac sold 18,000 car in 2008 and 2009 and only 2166 through October. Enough said, major mistakes by GM lead to the dismal sales figures.

      • morning_in_america

        Jan 6, 2015 at 6:00 pm

        Yes, I have a G8 and felt the same way. The engine was a huge mistake. The G8GT got 15 city and 24 highway with cylinder deactivation. They should have been able to at least match that with the Corvette’s LT1 and an 8 speed while providing the horsepower upgrade needed to make the car competitive with the Charger. INstead they used the 6 year old gas guzzling engine from the GXP. Wrong game plan. Guys who buys 4 door muscle cars have families and BUDGETS, and cant afford guzzler tax and low mpg.

      I have an 09 G8 GT and love the car I get 24 mpg when I drive the speed limit lol, but 20.5 mpg most the time due to my heavy foot. A lot of people assumed it was a BMW at first look. I wanted to buy the SS and might still get one, but my local dealer this year only got one in stock and it sold 2 days after they got it. I asked when they would get another one and they told me they are not sure when they can get another one and I would probably have to order one just to get one they way I want it…

      Man, I have to say, you are 100% correct. I am ashamed at the effort that GM put into the SS brand. The baddest 4 door Chevy from the 90’s was always the SS, and to this day I often wonder why they don’t put the same time and energy they used for the CTS V and build a real 4 door sports car with a detuned version of the new Vette engine around a body style that should make your draw drop when you see it drive by or even hear the grumble of the V8. Dodge created the Hemi, SRT8, SRT8 392, and the Hellcat. Chevy has the Z28, SS, ZL1, but it doesn’t have a top model to compete with the Hellcat, and it doesn’t plan to. Until someone really serious about the SS brand will take this car and make it as popular as the Vette, but a 4 door, blown version. This brand should be terrorizing the track over in Germany, all overseas, not a bland, average looking wedge of a design from another recycled model. Start off fresh and make something that can compete with the Hellcats and the Germans

        Lackluster designing. Why put that much performance enigineering into a car that looks like a Malibu?? It’s just dissappointing. If we saw one on the road, would we even recognize it? I just don’t understand why they made, apparently, no distinguishing performance appearance packages for a car branded an “SS?” The same was true of the late model GTO. The design was completely boring. At a time when car manufacturers had switched to designing large sports cars with big wheel wells that allowed for larger rims (20+), GM brings a car design from overseas that houses tiny 17 inch wheels, and overall, small, import-like dimensions. GM was just clueless and stubborn for too, too many years. I thought they pulled out of it with the Camaro, but dropped the ball again with the boring-looking, uninspired SS.

      GM still suffers from Brand Superiority within the Corporation. Only now, with just 4 brands to contend with, the pissing contests never seem to end. If GM does decide to bring a nameplate back, I do hope that it is Pontiac. I can just imagine what a Firebird would look like using the Camaro architecture.

      Nov 19, 2014 at 2:06 pm

      The Pontiac GTO and G8 from the 2000s, were not designed or engineered by Pontiac at all. They are not even American cars. They were designed and engineered by Holden. Holden is an Australian car company thats been around since the early 1900s. Holden is a subsidiary of GM, but a separate company. GM began bringing Holdens to the USA and they rebadged them as Pontiacs. Vice versa Gm sends Chevys to Australia and rebadges them Holden.

        A Corvette is a sports car, not a muscle car. Muscle cars have seating for four, and big American V8s. They are based on the architectures of regular sedans, not purpose built sports cars chassis like the Corvette has. Try not to act so juvenile when you post.

          Nov 29, 2014 at 9:00 pm

          That may have been true back in the 60’s and 70’s, but not anymore. The Challengers, Camaros and Mustangs are considered muscle cars. While the Challenger and Camaro use sedan chassis, the Mustang hasn’t in quite some time. I believe the previous generation didn’t share its chassis with any other vehicle.

      GXP had the 6.2
      THE chassis is different too.

      • morning_in_america

        Dec 2, 2014 at 4:42 pm

        If you read my posts, you will see I have my facts straight. I said the SS had the LS2 engine, and gave the horsepower, which was still not enough to compete with Dodge. The first fail for GM was not putting the Stingray’s engine in the car. I also said the SS was virtually indentical to the GXP. Serving up a warmed over GXP at premium prices is not a winning game plan.

        Here’s the quote from my earlier post: “(3) The SS cost too much. The G8GT was a $33K car fully loaded, the G8GXP, which is virtually identical to the SS, cost $37K. For the $47K this car cost, you were competing against the Charger SRT8, which has its own distinctive grille and a 485 hp V8, and starting this year, and 8 speed automatic.” Consider yourself corrected.

      An SS with a 3.6 V6 under $35k, and a V8 this side of $40k and they would have been in business. With a little luck maybe GM will build a a four door SS on the smaller, next Gen Camaro platform.

Who really gives a crap about a foreign four door with power. You may if your a yuppie that reads car and driver. Bring back a retooled Monte Carlo, rear wheel drive and an LT1 mill and it would be worthy of SS status.

        True enough, but we are talking small production here, not Camry numbers. The G8 sold about 20,000 cars in its prime, I’ll bet Hellcat production doesnt exceed 5.000 a year. But overall Charger volume will probably rise to 80,000 based on people coming in on Hellcat excitement and then buying a more affordable SRT or RT

        They are called “blind spots” because you can’t see that spot from your side mirrors either, otherwise they wouldn’t be blind. Some trucks have huge blind spots, especially the latest F-150 Super Crew. If you rely solely on the side mirrors, you will change lanes into someone. This is solved on the F-250 by the addition of 2 extra mirrors and there truly are no blind spots – but it does take some time to get accustomed to using 4 mirrors.

      You can’t compare a 99 first gen Durango to a third gen Durango. The new one is a huge leap. I had an ’03 and liked it a lot. Now I have a 2012 and it’s fantastic.

    2 door Impala SS with duel Turbo V6 rwd, 8 speed Auto or 6 manual, a cooler grill/hood, rear half of the roof line more sloped and the signature 3 round tail lights, would sell much better than the SS which looks like the last gen Malibu. It is a niche car that are not gonna sell like common family Cars/mini-vans, I am 52 and would buy 1 in a New York Minute

    The demise of Cadillac’s CTS Wagon demonstrates that American buyers are a stupid bunch that appreciate style over substance especially when the CTS Wagon offers as much capacity as some SUVs and how according to one magazine that Cadillac only needed to sell 39 wagons to recoup all of the engineering cost to build the wagon as this along with the CTS-V coupe will become instant collector cars.

    • Tom

      Nov 6, 2014 at 4:44 pm

      The CTS wagon looks like a damn hearse. I’m glad it’s getting the ax. Cadillac should learn a lesson, just because their cars are expensive status symbols, doesn’t mean people are going to drive them when they look like part of a funeral convoy. And the escalade needs to step up it’s game too, it’s a Tahoe, but you pay an extra $20,000 for shiny plastic and a Cadillac symbol.

        I had one minivan. First, last, and only. Room was adequate but power, convenience, mileage, and durability were a joke. However, the SUV’s built on a car/minivan chassis are certainly no better.

        • Maxillius

          Nov 13, 2014 at 11:05 am

      • Good bye Durango

        Nov 7, 2014 at 7:04 pm

        Glad you had a good experience with your Durango. We bought the 2011 Durango (first year it was redesigned)..read the reviews & it had the 3rd row seat & options we wanted. After driving it a few days we realized that we bought a piece of junk…the windows always whistled like they weren’t all the way up, things rattled & jiggled but the dealer couldn’t figure out how to fix after having it in shop a few times…trim on the interior fell off.. We tried to trade it in about a month later & they wanted to give us $8k less than we payed..a few other local dealerships had a bunch of ’11 models already traded back in…about 6 months later the Nissan dealer took it as a trade (had less than 6k miles on it) for our payoff..lost our nice down payment but got rid of it. Worst purchase we ever made!

      What’s wrong with a minivan? I love my Odyssey. I rides like a car and not like a truck and I can haul full 4×8 plywood with the seats out. Back doors don’t swing and hit stuff when park in the garage.

      • Minivan Dad

        Jan 2, 2015 at 11:04 am

        Agreed! We have an ’09 Toyota Sienna, and love it. The best part about the van is auto-open doors, and the sliding doors mean that my kids don’t fling open the back doors in parking lots and strike vehicles parked next to mine! We also have a tow package, and it pretty much pulls anything (small trailers, tandem motorcycle carrier) we need to pull just fine, without issues.

      The Fit EV may be a temporary dust biting though. It was a compliance car, and Honda will go back into its data to see if it is feasible to produce in en mass. I am willing to bet we see it again in a few years. The Fit itself is one of the best small hatchbacks on the market, adding an electric drivetrain just seems too good to pass up.

    My 07 FJ has proven over time and again, to be superior in all ways that matter to me. And as a competent driver who knows what side/rear-view mirrors are for and turns my head before switching lanes the “blind spot” hasn’t been a problem. I understand why there are so many bumper stickers that say jeeps are for chicks, but it’s to each his own.

    • clcntx

      Nov 6, 2014 at 5:46 pm

      I like the FJ, but I spent 2 weeks in Colorado and it was a rare sight, on and off road. Lots of Jeeps, very few of which were driven by chicks.

      • SZE

        Dec 16, 2014 at 6:07 pm

        Rare because the production numbers are slightly out of balance… MY FJ rides and handles better than any year Jeep out there. Sorry.

      Jan 5, 2015 at 1:46 pm

      We recently purchased an 2010 FJ cruise and took it out to Colorado/Utah and we were probably the only ones that there in a FJ. That being said, it’s an amazing car and the “blind spot” issues haven’t been a problem as you said, if you know how to use mirriors, you are good to go. With the Toyota engine, we are sure it will outlast any Jee on the road.

    Pure Marketing Genius by Sergio!
    When the Plymouth brand & Voyager was killed, they said everyone would migrate from the lower cost Plymouth to the lower cost Chrysler Voyager. That NEVER happened! In killing the 100 year old Dodge brand, they are removing a lower cost brand to make room for more crappy Fiats & Alfas. Meanwhile, the people that were buying the “sportier” or lower cost Dodge Caravan are blown off as customers, forced to revert to one of the Asian minivan wanna-bes. Chrysler never recaptured the 50k or so Voyager owners, and nor will they get the former Caravan buyers. This is almost the end of the Dodge marque. The Dart is a Fiat of dubious quality & the SRT (WTH?) brand is DOA. All that is left are the poorly packaged Charger dated Challenger. Now that they killed the Pentastar logo, that has been used since 1963, and is one the top 10 most recognized graphic symbols, he gives us FCA (“Fixing” Chrysler Again) because it is “global”!

    The Jaguar XKE from around 1962 was/is a better looking car than almost all the current models from almost all the car companies. Car designers (or is it just the executives who have the final decision?) just don’t know the difference between “change” and “improvement”.

    • morning_in_america

      Nov 25, 2014 at 12:11 pm

Gets lots of looks and compliments wherever I go. Very comfortable interior. Loaded with character. I don’t think such a charismatic car is meant to go on forever. I’m sure glad I own one.

    One reason is the base price of this Chevrolet Super Sport and second, this vehicle doesn’t have a direct name. Believe it or not most consumers want actual names to rely on …Chevy Tahoe, for instance. However, this car has the potential but the price and its competition is too hefty for its lifespan. What a waste of production, money and engineers time for their effort of building a high-performance remake of the Pontiac G8 in V-8 form.

    Just a note that the Toyota FJ Cruiser is nothing like a Jeep Wrangler. The only similarity is in looks, because Toyota decided to go with retro styling for the FJ to remind people of the original 70s era Toyota Land Cruiser. IIRC, the FJ’s drivetrain is either Corolla or Camry based. Actually, it’s a much BETTER car than the Wrangler.

    • Shane Shelton

      Nov 16, 2014 at 7:49 pm

      The FJ is based on the last generation 4Runner and Tacoma and is basically mechanically identical to them. No Corolla or Camry engines. It’s always been a body-on-frame truck based SUV

      • Craig

    The SS/G8 never had a chance. The G8 fell to the Obama axe after just being introduced, and the SS, while every bit as awesome a vehicle as the G8, suffered from extremely boring styling. If they’d given it the same treatment they gave the 2015 Impala, for example, or even made it look more like the Camaro, it might have been a success. Unfortunately, nobody wanted to pay $40,000 for a car that looked like a VW Passat.

      Jan 10, 2015 at 1:34 pm

      The G8Gt wasn’t a cheap knock off. It offered identical handling and power and superior room to a 550i, and Pontiac had the twin grille look long before BMW. Paying $60K for that over at BMW when you could get the same or better for $30K with the G8GT is simply wasting money.

Have owned Jeep CJ/s, Wranglers, Chevrolet Blazers, but none even compare to what the FJ has going for it. 50,000 miles and not one problem, only one recall for the rear seat belt anchors, still has the original brakes with 80% life left, 260 horsepower, (very responsive), a constant 21 Mile per gallon, regardless if off road, in town, or on the highway.

    Underneath the plastic covering on the bumpers it has an all steel frame, steel rock slider bars, skid plates, and is one tough vehicle that can go anywhere. For those people that adapt a vehicle for full off road, many, many options, such as larger tires, winches, bumpers, etc.. can be added, with very minor alterations.

    The tires are still the original tires, with absolutely no cupping of the front tires that the Chevrolet and Jeep always had, and required rotating every 2,000 miles to get any kind of tire life at all. Has more room in the back that that the Jeeps had, while only making the wheebase just slightly longer. Off road it has your hi range and low range gearing with posi-lock, front to back and from wheel to wheel, (all four wheels), that allow it to go where my jeep wrangler could never take me.

      Not as responsive as a4th gen 4runner with a V8. However I did put springs off an FJ to give it a level stance and gained about a half inch of lift. My 4Runner will go anywhere your FJ will and offers more comfortable space for passengers. But I will say the FJ is a nice and capable off road vehicle and I am surprised to see them go. They are everywhere in AZ and hold value very well. Would love to pick one up for my son who will be driving in over a year..

      If you are referring to our government you are wrong. GM has repaid the Federal Governmenf all it owed (us) and we are no longer the majority stockholder – we don’t hold any of it anymore.
      As for GM itself, they made huge mistakes when they downsized, cutting badges. They certainly should not have kept Buick over Oldsmobile. And they should have put all their ‘economy’ & hybrid ‘environmentals’ into Saturn, instead of spreading them over their other badges here and there.
      And BTW while I’ll agree that Main St. is still not doing as well as Wall St., our economy is MUCH better than it was in 2008, and the number of people working jobs is back up to pre-Recession numbers.

        Check and see how much of the money was repaid. More jobs yea. What are they paying of course most union workers could perform these jobs with no problem with what they are paying for these new jobs union workers can perform with no problem. I suppose you think all jobs should pay what union workers make. Of course they probably are making as much since it takes three union workers to perform the job of one that actually works.

    The SS was not a G8 The G8 is the Chevy Caprice. The SS was brought to the US because of NASCAR regulations. The SS replaced the Impala for racing and thus must be a retail unit available for sale to the public. It was cheaper than building a new car. A company called Trans Am Deport http://www.transamdepot.com has the exclusive rights to use the Pontiac name and badging and uses Camaros to build Trans Ams, Firebirds, GTOs etc.

    They say that the Dodge Durango could shift brands and be rebranded… But it already has. Its the exact same as a Jeep Grand Cherokee. What sucks is that the Durango is a good looking truck. If the Cherokee and Durango had more differences between them the Durango would sell like hotcakes. People will buy a Jeep instead because of the name and “reliability”. GM made a HUGE mistake by cutting off the Trail Blazer. It was a HUGE seller and the quality/mpg were great. They went too cross-over and the traverse is more of a mom mobile than an crossover/SUV. Chevrolet made a big mistake releasing the SS as a rebadged SS. The G8 was far better looking and the styling was very dated. Also you have the new Impala which is FAR BETTER looking and the Malibu which is great looking and fuel efficient. GM should have made a 450+HP coupe. You can call it a Monte Carlo or ElCamino but it would fit the niche of consumers that want a powerful coupe that’s not as sporty as a Camaro, Mustang, Challenger yet can keep up with them. I would love to see GM make a retro Buick Grand National (1987 era) or a Monte Carlo/ 442. They are nearly 30 years old, I think Americans would love a bad ass Monte Carlo SS with the G-body.

    The writer evidently never dealt with dealers. That’s why there were three variations of the Chrysler minivans. You always had a dealer nearby. I believe a new Durango will be a Ram badge based off of the Grand Cherokee. But considering the reboot of dealerships, many sell Dodge, Ram, and Jeep together. So it’s unnecessary.

    In ’65 Pontiac released an accessory package (PN 984716) that included a air cleaner pan and a foam seal and instructions on how to cut a hole in the hood. An analogous package was sold by Pontiac parts counters for the ’66 GTO (PN 984717). Bottom pan was revised to accommodate larger center carb for Tri-Power set ups and a kit to re-route fuel line feed to carbs. Mid-year ‘66 Pontiac produced between 25-50 “XS” Ram-Air Tri-Power GTOs in 1966 which had hotter “744” cam (PN 9785744), stiffer valve springs, .022″ “thin” head gaskets, blocked heat riser to center carb, Armasteel crankshaft, revised distributor curve, bigger fuel pump and fuel lines. Only a handful, 25-50 1966 GTOs with the XS option were produced before GM corporate commanded that only the Corvette would receive multi-carb set ups from that point on.

    I thought the SATURN was being discontinued but didn’t find it listed?
    How about the Cube and Fit; surprised me because of economy and seeing
    lots on the streets. Personally I did not like their small size but the Fit had
    some style appeal and the Honda name behind it was good.
    Nothing like our cars of the 60’s…right?!!! This Senior loved GTO’s, Mustangs,
    Firebirds…ah, those were the days when you were master of the car…not all
    new technology driving it.

No matter, SS or Trans Am, you could feel the muscle as the cars idled next to at a red light.

    NONE of them will be missed. What was Cadillac even thinking when they built a hideous station wagon anyway? Idiots. The Durango has been outclassed by virtually every SUV on the market, it should have been gone a long time ago. The SS is another vehicle that was built to try and appease the automobile writers that have been touting RWD. Those that live in cold climates don’t want RWD, they want FWD, or AWD. The SS was doomed from the start no matter how good it could have been. It was ugly too. The Nissan convertible SUV was another real ingenious move. IDIOTS The Nissan Cube was/is a hideous vehicle that should have NEVER made it to market at all. And the Honda Fit? Really? No explanation necessary for this laughably UGLY car. These cars are going away because they should have never been on the market to begin with.

    Allan F, today, Cadillac is releasing a very high price sedan, and why is it high priced, because it has a CHEVROLET ENGINE. Do you really think there was a difference, quality and performance wise, between a 350 cu. inch V-8 with Cheverolet valve covers, and one with Oldsmobile valve covers? That Chevy engine you refer to later powered Cadillac Fleetwoods. It was developed from the original small block Chevy that was only 265 Cu. In., and led to the 283, 305, and other engines. The Buick V-8s were not superior. I supposed you were disappointed Buicks didn’t continue to use Dynaflow too, or do you even know what that is? Buick’s nail head went away long before 1978. Like most people, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW. Was the 426 Hemi, a Chrysler Engine, a Plymouth Engine, or a Dodge Engine? General Motors got into trouble because they tried to maintain high profit margins on small cars, and that just won’t work. GM became a great auto company by building superior low priced Chevys with the idea of moving customers up on their next purchases into higher margin Pontiacs, Oldsmobiles, and Buicks. They forgot what made them great and then turned out crap small cars like the Vega, Monza, and Chevette, and the also lousy slightly larger Citations and Cavaliers that they then sold across the five brands.

      Miles, maybe you need a little education before you call someone else out. GM was making 350 ci engines for Olds, Buick, Pontiac and Chevy. All were different and all had advantages and disadvantages. The SBC became the engine of choice because GM made more of them than the others combined and they were cheaper to make. The iron alloy used in the blocks and heads was not as good as the others for wear resistance, but did machine easier. GM lost a major lawsuit for not telling other brand customers that their Buick/Olds/Pontiac product had a Chevy engine in it. That’s when they started their “corporate” engine program. Caddy kept their engines for quite a while until the Fleetwood (Cadillac Caprice…) debuted with a version of the Gen II Chevy LT1 engine. While powerful, these are probably viewed as some of the poorer designs in the SBC lineup with numerous issues (Optispark anyone?).

    Strange how back in the late 60’s and early 70’s the bad Camaro SS 396 with 375 sounded bad, burnt rubber, looked great and people turned their heads as cars like this, Boss 302 429 Vette, Chevelle SS, Nova SS, Goat, Trans Am, Charger, Challenger, Cuda, etc where mostly hot cars having HP around ~ 350-425 hp, but the new Chev SS with 415hp just don’t seem to be a bad car to turn heads. Even the Impala SS of the 60’s turned head. Something is missing in the new style cars like the Chev SS. Listen to the stock Ford Mustang 502 Vs the Hemi Charger, Ford retained the thunder sound exhaust from the 60′ 70 Boss. The new Chev Camaro having all that HP in the SS still does not have the sound of the old days and even though the V6 cars have 300+ hp, you still have the sound of a V6 and not the bold sound of a V8.

    Well hate to inform you, but……my ex brother in law in Virginia has a documented, numbers matching, completely original (with build sheet) 66 GTO with a 389 tri-power, ram air 1 v8 four speed car in alpine white with black interior. I was with him when he found it in an old barn covered in chicken shit. With a good cleaning, the car was in pretty good shape, with only minor rust around the rear window, and a soft ball size dent in the front fender. Of course the tri carb linkage was rusted solid, but the interior was mint, and the car had only 36,000 miles on it. He’s since got it running and rebuilt the three two barrel carbs. He’s been offered $40k for the car and turned it down. He paid only $900.00 for it from the farmer who’s property he was cleaning up. So your facts are incorrect. I have seen the car myself and researched it through GM. Plus the finding of the build sheet under the back seat helped.

    How can something called a Grand Caravan be a “mini-van”? Is there even such a thing today as just a “van”? It seems like they’re all called “mini”, even if they’re fairly huge.

    The FJ cruiser will be missed. Toyota should have found a decent diesel power plant to put in it, like the diesel for the Dodge half ton pickup, to up its MPG and longevity.

    Some Dealers and a Fiat Rep all mentioned that The Durango will exist as a new model based on the RAM 1500 chassis and front end with both gas and Diesel models. This would be nice. AQ preproduction sketches showed one as a police unit another as a family mover and another as a practical work unit.

    This is from Dodge in September:
    Durango: Dodge’s large three-row crossover will remain in the lineup, at least through 2018 and likely beyond since it will be positioned below the upscale Jeep Grand Wagoneer, due in 2018.

    Minor changes are planned for early 2017 to improve fuel economy.
    Looks like this article needs to be updated.

    Out of the 10 cars I would take the Cadillac station wagon just because it looks cool and the Jaguar, but I would not buy them personally as since 1990 vowed to never buy another GM product since they don’t stand behind them and took a hit on them. Had a xtype Jag and that was in the shop more than we had it but the nice thing was we always got a Land Rover as a loaner, but they got kind of poed when the Jag was out for 2 months waiting on parts and we took the Rover on a 2k vacation trip. They happened to called and said bring that one in we may have a buyer we will give you another one to drive but we were 1k miles away.

    The cost of the SS was at least $10k out of the ballpark. Chevy can’t and shouldn’t try to compete at that stratospheric level, unless it has “Corvette” written somewhere on it. In addition, the styling looked more like something that should have been introduced circa 1995.

    I think some of these cars are getting the axe simply because there was no advertising on them. I didn’t even know that the Durango had made a comeback! How do auto manufacturers expect their vehicles to sell if people don’t know about them? I also had no idea that the Murano was available as a cabriolet. It actually looks better than a regular Murano! I do wish Dodge would bring back the Dakota pickup. Not everyone needs a big pickup, and the Dakota was just the right size.

    On my second Cube. Love the things. Spoke with three dealers and all three have said for years that they were hard to get, even when ordered in advance. All three dealers I spoke with said that the Cubes spent very little time on the lot and even less in the shop. The units with the whistles and bells weren’t in demand but Nissan seemed to think that’s what Americans wanted. Most everyone I know with a Cube wanted the low end model, bare bones. Sounds like a miss in marketing, not in a good idea.

    Pontiac had the twin grill look back in the 1960s. BMW’s then just had “nostrils” and didnt really have twin grills. So it was pontiac that was copied by bmw. Just like today’s Maserati styling is a sexed up version of Buick styling right down to the portholes.

      Personally I get sick of descriptions that begin with ‘…looks just like a BMW’ or ‘…handles almost like a BMW’ especially in car commercials where comparison is their hype. Since when is’almost as good as the original’ a selling point? Just buy the danged BMW used, because they really are that much fun to drive!

      • morning_in_america

        Jan 10, 2015 at 1:32 pm

        the G8GT didn’t handle “almost like a BMW” , it’a perfomance was indistinguishable from the 550i, the high end V8 model. And with BMW’s crappy long-term reliability, I’d rather have a time-tested small bloc GM v8 and the warranty. Especially since I plan on keeping the car for at lease 200K miles. It will be far far cheaper to own than a used BMW when maintenance is factored in.

    I like my Cube. I’m long waisted and in almost every other car I drive my head is touching the roof, feel like Fred Flinstone pet Dino. In the Cube I have alot of head room, can even wear my cap without it getting scruntched. Passengers have alot of leg room so no complaints from the back seat. It isn’t the best looking vehicle but it isn’t that expensive either.

    I am also surprised at the Durango which it looks like will be replaced by the redesigned Dakota which basically, if the advance pictures are right, is an SUV like the Chevy Avalanche.

    No doubt the Trans-Am and other Firebirds were derived from Camaros, but in general they were better equipped, and had a few mechanical upgrades as well.

    I think it’s foolish they are giving the Durango the axe. I bought a 2013 last year and love mine. As a stay at home dad with 3 young sons it laughs in the face of all soccer mom vans.

    The Cabriolet Crossover is one of the best riding 4 adult convertible I have ever
    ridden in. My wife wanted a convertible for 45 years but never got one until she saw
    the Cabriolet Convertible. Four adults can sit comfortably with plenty of room.

    The Dodge Durango is departing and the Jeep Grand Wagoneer or just Jeep Wagoneer is going to be resurrected (maybe) to be bigger than the Grand Cherokee but smaller than the Ford Expedition or GM Yukon. There were talks of doing that 2 years ago. Whether that idea comes about is anyone’s guess.

    GM has had one screw up after another. I am not wild about the new Camaro and even if I did like it, who in the hell can afford an SS today? I have owned several new F” bodies over the last 30 years, including Trans Ams, Firebirds and a Z28. New Cars of that caliber are simply beyond the reach of the average person today. I welcome the better mileage and power, but what good is it if you can’t afford the car?

    The SS runs 56k in Montana with destination charges etc. That’s before you pay interest or gas guzzler taxes. That’s why it died. GM doesn’t make cars for the everyman anymore.

    Telling my age , but there was a time you could look at a car know what it was , the year , engine etc, one could even just listen to the engine and know what it was. Now days driving down the road you couldn’t tell one from the other unless you looked at the name plate .
