2005 Ford Excursion

2005 Ford Excursion

There were two good reasons for the demise of the Ford Excursion, and only one really good reason for it to have been built in the first place.

Addressing the former: Gas prices rose alarmingly during the Excursion’s brief tenure in Ford’s product lineup. Also, there was probably a finite market for 7000-pound SUVs, and what demand there was for such a vehicle had been met fairly quickly in the Excursion’s 2000-05 model-year run.

LA-Auto-Show-LogoAt the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, Mitsubishi unveiled a concept vehicle the company says, gives “a peek into the strategic vision of the brand.”

That “peek” was of the e-Evolution, an all-electric, high-performance crossover, what Mitsubishi indicates will be “the type of vehicles we will bring to our customers in the very near future.”

2019 Honda Passport

LA-Auto-Show-LogoHonda has the compact SUV class capably covered with its CR-V, and its Pilot SUV is a solid competitor in the three-row midsize SUV category. However, two-row, five-passenger SUVs are also a very popular market segment, and Honda didn’t have a product offering there to compete directly against rivals such as the Ford Edge and the just-redesigned Hyundai Santa Fe. That changes with the introduction of the 2019 Honda Passport, which is being unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Plug-in Hybrid

2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid

LA-Auto-Show-LogoSubaru’s first plug-in hybrid will be making its public debut at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show. Based on the Crosstrek compact crossover that was redesigned last year, the Hybrid (Subaru doesn’t include “Plug-In” in the official name, but it does on the car’s badges) pairs a 2.0-liter flat-four engine with two electric motors. One of the motors is used to start the engine at stops and as a generator to recharge the lithium-ion battery, the other to help power the car and charge the battery under braking. As with the “regular” Crosstrek, the Hybrid comes standard with all-wheel drive, making it one of the few all-wheel-drive hybrids — and one of the least-expensive AWD plug-in hybrids — on the market.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Orvis Edition

Note: The following story was excerpted from the April 2018 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Jeep’s compact Cherokee and Wagoneer proved popular after their debuts for 1984, and parent AMC was already working on a larger replacement when Chrysler bought the company in 1987. Chrysler had other priorities, so it took until the 1993 model year for the replacement to go on sale. At that point the decision was made to keep the old type in production and position the new vehicle upmarket as the Grand Cherokee and Grand Wagoneer.
