2012 Ford Escape

2013 cars that won't be coming back

There is a long list of 2012 and 2013 cars that will be going to the auto graveyard never to be seen again.

The automotive industry is one of the most exciting industries in the world because of the constant change in models and technology. Every year there are announcements of new models coming out to peak our interests. And many years we also say goodbye to models that have been with us for decades. We will say goodbye to fourteen models for the 2012 and 2013 model years, some of which we will be sad to see go, and others we won’t. Below is the list of cars, trucks, and SUV’s that will go into the automotive history books.

Chevy Avalanche / Cadillac Escalade EST: The Chevy Avalanche is a cross between two body styles that were both popular. The truck is a four-door six passenger sport utility truck that shared the same chassis with the Chevrolet Suburban and has seen declining sales with the growth of crew-cab sales. The Cadillac Escalade was a re-badged Avalanche and was never a large seller for the luxury brand. Both models are going away in the 2013 model year.

Chevy Aveo: GM’s smallest and least expensive car is just basic transportation. The car comes as a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback and had nothing exciting to offer to young buyers. The Aveo is being replaced by the Chevy Sonic that is built on the same platform, but is a superior car in every area. The Aveo should have been sent to the scrap yard years ago.
