These vehicles will be k*lled in 2019: Say goodbye to Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan cars
 

 
In the auto industry, business is booming for the undertaker.

Automakers are k*lling vehicle models at a steady clip Ė largely because buyer preferences are changing.

Itís all part of a sweeping shift into SUVs and crossovers, which offer more space, a higher stance and fuel economy thatís vastly better than a decade ago. About 1 in 2 vehicles sold in 2019 will be SUVs or crossovers, according to projections by car-buying advice site Edmunds.

ďPrimarily itís a shift away from passenger cars Ė compacts, hatchbacks, those types of vehicles,Ē said Matt DeLorenzo, senior managing editor of Kelley Blue Book.

Several vehicles that are being put out of their misery are hybrids of some form, which Americans have been reluctant to buy with gasoline below $3 per gallon since 2014.

Discontinuing vehicles is not something the automakers do lightly, in part because theyíve invested substantial time and money into marketing and developing those models.

Take the Volkswagen Beetle, for example. Itís an iconic brand with seven decades of name recognition and an iconic silhouette.

But the 2019 model will be the final one. At least for a while.

If thereís one thing to remember about the auto industry, itís that goodbye isnít necessarily forever. After all, in 2019 Ford will revive the Ranger pickup, Toyota will revive the Supra sports car and Honda will bring back the Passport SUV.

As we welcome back those vehicles, weíre waving goodbye to these:

image

Ford Taurus
This is not the first time Ford decided to end production of this large sedan. But it could be the last. Large cars are falling out of favor. At one point, the Taurus was one of the most popular cars in America. Those days are long gone.

image

Ford Focus
This compact sedan perished as Ford pivots its focus toward SUVs and pickups. Ford had only 12,000 Focus cars left as of early December. Get it while you still can.

image

Chevrolet Impala
Like the Taurus, this large sedan once occupied prime real estate in the American automotive landscape. Despite a critically acclaimed redesign earlier this decade, it couldnít overcome the sedan segmentís demise.

image

Chevrolet Cruze
GM bet big on this compact sedan earlier this decade, and it paid off for a while. But sales have suffered during the SUV boom. Its demise has placed GMís plant in Lordstown, Ohio, at serious risk of closing.

image

Chevrolet Volt
Billed as an emblem of GMís engineering prowess and pivot toward alternative propulsion vehicles, this vehicle essentially invented the concept of the plug-in hybrid. It was critically acclaimed and generated a loyal base of enthusiasts.

But sales never reached initial expectations, and GM is turning its attention to battery-powered cars that donít have a backup gas generator like the Volt.

image

Volkswagen Touareg
Volkswagen will continue to sell this model in foreign markets but not in the U.S. Here, itís now selling the Atlas large SUV and the Tiguan crossover, with plans to introduce more SUVs.

image

Volkswagen Beetle
This two-door car has one of the most iconic silhouettes in the auto industry. But Americans donít want to hunch over to get into cars anymore.

image

Hyundai Azera
This attempt at a luxury sedan never panned out. The Korean automaker pivoted its luxury efforts toward an altogether new brand called Genesis, which is struggling to gain sales traction.

image

Honda CR-Z
This compact hybrid had bad timing, entering the market just as hybrid sales were falling off a cliff.

image

Ford C-Max
This model, which was offered in hybrid and plug-in versions, had a strong run out of the gate but eventually fell prey to the same industry trends that undermined the CR-Z.

image

Toyota Prius V
This large version of the Prius hybrid hasnít been manufactured since the 2017 model-year, but itís still registering sales, according to Edmunds.

image

Nissan Juke
Nissanís quirky subcompact crossover has given way to a new little crossover called the Nissan Kicks.

image

Cadillac CT6 and XTS
These large luxury sedans were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Luxury buyers with this much money to spend and a desire for space are buying SUVs.

image

Cadillac ATS
This compact luxury sedan was designed as a competitor to industry stalwarts such as the BMW 3-series. It couldnít overcome the Cadillac brandís struggles and the compact sedan segmentís implosion.

All I'll say is. Whenever one country stays going to gas/resource guzzlers, a new war coming through. The rest of the world stays paying for trends with their lives

What's going to happen when oil goes back to $110 / barrel and gas is $5 / gallon in the south?

Next recession gonna be major and all those big bets on SUVs are going to bite back.

V8 only tho. A V6 Camaro is basically a Malibu couple.

The only people who should be driving V6 "muscle" cars are strippers
