While many advertisers latched onto the Bicentennial hype surrounding our nation’s 200th birthday, automakers largely did not.

There’s an all-new Honda Accord coming for 2018. Among the numerous changes to the Accord lineup for ’18 is the elimination of the available V6 engine, and the addition of two available turbocharged engines.

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.
