Some vehicles were destined to be around for decades: The Chevrolet Corvette debuted in the 1950s, the Ford Mustang was introduced in the ‘60s, and the Honda Accord and Volkswagen Golf go back to the ‘70s. While these four long-haulers are still alive and well (for now), the same can’t be said for over a dozen vehicles that are getting the ax for the 2023 model year. As shoppers’ preferences have shifted to larger SUVs and pickup trucks, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that 10 out of the 14 discontinued vehicles are sedans or hatchbacks and the remaining four are small SUVs.
Below is a roundup of all the vehicles that have been killed off for 2023, their new and used median prices (if available) and estimated inventory among Cars.com dealers as of December 2022. We also offer several alternatives shoppers can consider across similar vehicle types and price ranges. Excluded from the list are discontinued supercars like the Acura NSX and commercial vans like the Ram ProMaster City.
