2018 is Coming: What Cars Didn’t Make the Cut

2018 is Coming: What Cars Didn’t Make the CutAs 2018 cars are starting to be released, older models are starting to be discontinued according to a recent report from Forbes. If you’ve wanted to get your hands on one of the models below, they’re going to be a lot harder to find as of January 2018.

Many sport-utility vehicles, which have become a popular go-to in the automotive industry, will be unavailable after this year.

Dodge Viper
The Dodge Viper had a strong run, from 1992 into 2017, but the car is being phased out after this year. The Dodge Viper was intended to please a very particular audience and that audience proved to be a committed fan base for years.  The Dodge Viper, a blend between a coupe and a roadster, experienced two different corporate ownerships but still remained desirable for years.

Jeep Patriot
The Jeep Patriot was a successful, popular vehicle choice for a decade, running from 2007 to 2017. The vehicle was rarely changed over the course of ten years but still remained a popular choice for drivers. When the Jeep Patriot was first released, it was the only crossover that had off-road skills through a “Trail Rated” 4×4 system. However the Jeep Compass, often compared to the Patriot, has stolen the spotlight for the upcoming year.

Volkswagen CC
The Volkswagen CC was labeled as a well-rounded four-door coupe from 2009 to 2017. However, the Volkswagen Passat started taking the place of the CC when it became a more affordable, midsize vehicle. Volkswagen has been committed to creating a luxury four-door coupe for years, and the 2018 Atlas is expected to soon debut as well which could eventually outshine the Passat as well.

Smart ForTwo
The Smart ForTwo, created by Mercedes-Benz, was a car that was both exceptionally cheap and small for the brand and ran from 2008-2017. However, both the U.S. coupe and convertible models will disappear at the end of 2017. Mercedes-Benz is expected to shift their efforts toward an Electric Drive version instead.
