Top 10 Geriatric Vehicles

Cars like the Mercury Grand Marquis and Buick Roadmaster are quintessential examples of “old-person transportation,” if we may make a blatantly ageist statement.

Potentially offensive remarks aside, these large, rear-wheel-drive sedans were a favorite of the grandparent set; it’s hard to believe they didn’t come from the factory with wrap-around sunglasses, AAA stickers and boxes of tissues on their parcel shelves.

Even though these smooth-riding, body-on-frame cars are gone and their breed just about extinct, there are still quite a few current-production vehicles with plenty of elderly appeal. In our opinion, here’s a list of the 10 Most Geriatric Cars and Trucks on the Market Today.

Sportiness is no Ghostly Apparition with the Wraith


2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith

Rolls-Royce is one of the most famous automakers in the world. This storied British brand is best known for building obscenely lavish cars, motoring vehicles that scream “expensive,” but in a well-mannered, genteel way.

2014-Rolls-Royce-Wraith-05.jpgModels like the Ghost sedan and Phantom flagship practically define the luxury segment. They’re decked out with features and materials not found in lesser vehicles, even from premium brands. But traditionally Rollers are all about comfort; “waftability” is something engineered right into these models from day one. They’re designed to transport passengers in total comfort and serenity.

In the past if you wanted a sporty luxury car you’d have to shop somewhere else. The folks at Mercedes-Benz would happily sell you an AMG-amplified model, or BMW would gladly entice you with their M cars. But sporty and Rolls-Royce were mutually exclusive, until now.
