10 Cars That Will Be Discontinued After 2017
As is the case with a lot of brand’s products, they don’t last forever. The car market is no different. Here’s a last look at 10 models that will be out of commission by season’s end.
1. Chevy SS
2. Buick Verano
3. Chrysler 200
4. Dodge Viper
5. Infinity ZX70
6. Jeep Patriot
7. Mitsubishi Lancer
8. Nissan Quest
9. Smart Car For 2
10. And the VW Touareg
With SUVs being on the rise, it’s not a huge surprise that passenger cars account for several models on this list. Are there any you’re sad to see go? Let us know.
Make sure you tune into this week’s PowerNation as all four shops have real world practical tech you can use, plus Katie will feature one red hot gorgeous custom ’54 Vette that was a 2017 Ridler Great 8 award winner. Owner-builder Larry Griffey of Larry Griffey’s Hot Rods & Restorations will share his vision of the “motor-rama” Corvette he thought GM should have built.
In a 6 year labor of love, he did lots of body modifications to get the stance he wanted and dropped in an LS-1 with an Edelbrock supercharger making around 580 horsepower. That striking color is a three-stage Matrix paint called “Soul Red”. Pro Auto Interiors handled the interior and it is, of course, Great 8 quality. He named it “Transitions” because of all the changes it’s been thought. By the way, this is Larry’s 2nd Ridler Great 8 award winner, amazing work for a small Knoxville, Tennessee shop!
