Vehicles Axed in 2013

Gone But Not Forgotten

A lot went down in 2013. It was something of a banner year for the automotive business. Products continued to get better, sales steadily improved and alternative propulsion, whether in the form of electricity or diesel gained significant traction.

Beyond all of this, a new Chevrolet Corvette was introduced; Ford revealed its next-generation Mustang; and it was announced that Mary Barra will become the next CEO of General Motors. The times, they are uh-changin’ and for the better.

But it wasn’t all puppies, cotton candy and songs about holding hands; quite a few nameplates were culled in 2013. Here’s a list of vehicles that were terminated last year, some of which we’re sad to see go, others probably should have never made it into production.

    Wait a sec, the Tribeca came out as a 2013 model and is now out as a 2014.

    A simple list with descriptions and pictures is nice. I hate these slideshows you have to wait to load…

    Regarding the Audi TT-RS, the article complains that 5-cylinder engines are not enjoyable and “go against physics.” Then it says the motor was fantastic in the TT-RS. Is your author schizophrenic?

    I seem to remember some awesome Audi Quattro 20-valve 5-cylinder rallye cars back in the 80’s. This motor is a VW-Audi staple. If I remember correctly Audi first employed the 5-cylinder engine in the 1976 Audi 100. Bullsh*t about “moaning like a camel.” I think they’ve got it working like a champ over the last 38 years.

    I believe Craig was complaining about the regular 2.5L 5-cyl used in the Golf and other cars. The Audi’s TT-RS’s 2.5T is amazing. We’re big fans!
