Passport Dealerships

These Canada-only General Motors franchises lasted only a few short years.

For American car guys, Canada can seem like a very foreign place. Not only do our neighbors up north refer to American cheese as processed cheese, or more charitably as “mild cheddar,” they have a history of buying and selling cars that many of us Yankees have never heard of.

2017 Ford Fusion Sport

by Don Sikora II

Note: The following story was excerpted from the October 2017 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The second-generation Ford Fusion made its debut as a 2013 model, and the midsize sedan received some significant updates for 2017. Most Fusion models cater to a practical and mainstream market, while the Hybrid and Energi plug-in models target efficiency seekers. Now, though, Ford has added something for those looking for more speed and a bit more excitement than run-of-the-mill sedans offer: the Fusion Sport.

Worst Selling Cars of 2019

2019 Buick Regal TourX

It’s tough selling sedans today. American consumers have turned from the traditional sedan with surprising quickness and resolution. And while it’s possible we’ve seen a leveling off in the sales growth of crossovers, it’s almost certain that once-dominant sedan will remain a niche segment for years to come, if not permanently.

Like many auto journalists, the editors of Consumer Guide Automotive attend manufacturer-hosted press events to get our first look at the newest vehicles hitting the market—that’s how we produce most of our First Spin test-drive reviews. However, we also attend “smorgasbord-style” press events that allow us brief access to a broad variety of new vehicles from a host of manufacturers, for quick-take impressions and helpful back-to-back comparison drives.

2019 Lincoln Continental Black Label. 2019 Lincoln Continental Black Label

2018 Lincoln Continental

Camaro ZL1by Don Sikora

Note: The following story was excerpted from the February 2019 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

The Lincoln Continental seemingly faded away after 2002, but the storied nameplate—so integral to the marque—apparently was too important to lose. It came back in 2017, applied to Lincoln’s largest sedan on a stretched version of the Ford Fusion chassis. It’s fair to say the car’s styling elicited mixed reactions, a pity for a nameplate first used by Lincoln on a car that oozed style. That said, this installment of Future Collectibles focuses on the latest Continentals in Lincoln’s Black Label Program.
