While many advertisers latched onto the Bicentennial hype surrounding our nation’s 200th birthday, automakers largely did not. Sure, there were several red, white, and blue-themed special-edition trim packages available (mostly as 1975 models), but otherwise the automakers were largely mum on the subject.

1991 GMC Sierra 1500

Though it’s hard to pinpoint the exact moment that pickup trucks started becoming luxury cars with cargo beds, 1991 is pretty close to that point. Around that time, rear doors started appearing on extended-cab trucks, and leather upholstery began showing up on options lists.

2012 Lancia Delta

Note: Presented here is a Consumer Guide blog post originally seen in May of 2012. At the time, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) was developing a fastback compact sedan for the Chrysler brand based mechanically on the Dodge Dart. Poor Dart sales, and a general shift in consumer interest to crossover vehicles prompted FCA to kill the compact Chrysler project midstream. The Chrysler 200, which also shared Dart elements, was also killed around this time. The text of the Future Car report below is presented unaltered and as it was published back in 2012.
