US auto shoppers are becoming increasingly picky about what vehicles they want to drive in this new decade, but one thing is already clear: sedans and coupes are on the verge of extinction. Among other auto industry news, the automakers have announced models that will no longer be produced, marketed, nor found in their lineups, forcing long-time owners of the models discontinued for 2020 to turn to used car lots.
Apparently, these vehicles simply didn’t catch on with US auto shoppers due to being either too costly, too eccentric, or too…sedan. Out of the 32 vehicles discontinued for 2020, sedans make up the majority of the list: All of those 9 sedans will become a thing of the past. Then there are 18 more passenger cars to say goodbye to: 8 hatchbacks, 6 coupes, and 4 convertibles. For light-duty trucks, there are only 5 of them in the list: 3 SUVs, 1 crossover, and 1 pickup.
The lineup of vehicles discontinued for 2020 that can be seen below proves that the truck boom in the US that has been seen in recent years is here to stay. This body style obviously meets the needs of the current market while sedans are simply unable to maintain decent sales volumes. The vehicles are listed in descending order according to price. The prices are for 2019 new vehicle models.
