Death list 2014: The cars you won't see next year
MORE AT HIGH GEAR MEDIA
But what about the cars that aren't coming back?
Last year, we brought you the definitive list of the vehicles that disappeared for the 2013 model year. And now it's time to wave some more goodbyes--some fond, some not so much--to the clutch of vehicles that won't be hitting the road next year.
You won't be surprised by some of them. In at least a couple of instances, some of these vehicles would not go gently into the night, no matter how many pillows were held to their face. Others are certainly getting buried long before their time, and no amount of CPR will help at this point.
Send your condolences to the brands below, and do yourself a favor--don't hold out for 2014 reviews on these disappearing cars:
The ZDX puzzled us from the very start. A size-challenged spin-off of the Acura MDX, the ZDX gave up too much rear-seat and cargo space in its quest for a coupe-like body. Had it been priced closer to $35,000 instead of $50,000, it might have found a niche--but instead, 2013 will be its last year on sale.
Ford Boss 302 Mustang
The best Mustang you can buy was always conceived of as a two-year special. And special it is--we've driven it at Laguna Seca and had the most fun possible in a live-axle car this side of 1000 horsepower. But the Boss is handing over the reins for 2014, while Ford preps an all-new Mustang for the 2015 model year. Mark your calendars for next year's New York Auto Show.
