Edmunds.com supplied BusinessWeek.com/Autos with a list of the most discounted vehicles available in the USA. Of almost two dozen vehicles, only two were actual ‘cars’. Another would be aptly titled a minivan, another is minivan-based and yet another was designed to be a car-like minivan alternative. The rest?
Trucks or truck-based sport-utility vehicles, that’s what they are. Four members of this unenviable list are General Motors trucks, all part of a previous generation of GM’s family, and in reality are just two trucks with two badges. (2+2 = 4, yeah?) The minivan member of this list has also been replaced.
Only three of the vehicles wear the badges of foreign companies. Behind the badges, one is a Dodge truck, another a Chevrolet Colorado, and yet another a Chevrolet TrailBlazer. The two cars are, in actuality, just upgraded versions of Ford’s Crown Victoria. A large percentage of the list are, will soon be, or should be, discontinued.
Mitsubishi Raider, Jeep Commander, Dodge Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 1500 Classic, Isuzu Ascender, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Lincoln Town Car, Dodge Durango, Dodge Dakota, Chrysler Aspen, Mercury Grand Marquis, Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra 2500HD Classic, Chrysler Pacifica, Saab 9-7X, Dodge Grand Caravan, Buick Rendezvous, Isuzu i-Series, and Chevrolet TrailBlazer.
