Car Stuff Podcast Dead PoolAs consumers continue to reject cars in favor of crossovers and SUVs, and auto manufacturers begin to consolidate their product portfolios to make space for electric vehicles, slow-selling models are being trimmed from carmaker lineups at an impressive clip.

Models you may not be aware were recently killed off include the Ford Flex midsize crossover, Mazda 6 midsize sedan, Toyota Prius C small hatchback, and Volvo V90 midsize station wagon.

To test their predictive powers–and to potentially score a free lunch via a friendly wager–the hosts of the Consumer Guide Car Stuff Podcast have each put together their own list of vehicles they think are likely to be discontinued soon.

Each host came up with five vehicles; you can review them down below. The rules are simple: The host with the most correct picks by the 2022 Chicago Auto Show wins a free lunch, paid for by the other two hosts. In the event of a tie, the loser has to pay for both winners’ meals.

Here are the 2021-2022 Consumer Guide Dead Pool picks, as revealed on Episode 95 of the podcast:
