Chrysler made a couple big mistakes with the 200: they didn’t do enough to differentiate it, visually or otherwise, from the negatively received last-gen Sebring, they named it “200” after the 300 had already been on the market for years (why would I want to buy a car that you’re telling me is only 2/3 as good as your other one?), and after that initial burst of advertising they never really seemed to care about it or try to do much with either it or the Dart (which should have had a performance model). It’s a shame too; I’ve heard that the AWD V-6 200s are good cars, but I’d never even heard of that configuration until they were already shutting down production.
 
 
@kleptomage  
Wow, I hadn’t realized that. Hopefully they’ll get the chance to introduce something new before fading away. Maybe once Alfa’s established in the US?

I see a lot of 300s on the road. But most the 2005-2008 ones. It’s like car with a soul of an SUV. Looks like a poor man’s Rolls Royce.  
Chrysler has been a dying brand since the 90s. Shame, because it was one of the major backbones of North American automotive history. They focusing more in crossover now because it’s the hottest thing at the current.  
That is where Jeep brand shines. And they have little to no reason to put crossovers in the Chrysler brand in an already oversaturated market.
 
I wish they’d revive badges such as the Lebaron, Imperial, or the New Yorker in some shape and form in the modern market.

It’s a strong commercial but its tagline is false. Chryslers are made in Canada.
 
Chrysler seems to be dying. They only have two vehicles now, the most popular of which is a minivan and the other is the old 300.

TIS WAS ALL A LIE!!!
 
But I hear it was a great car nevertheless. The Sebring badge spanned for almost a couple decades before being replaced by the shortlived 200 series.  
The first gen 200 was famously endorsed by Eminem It was the most kickass commercial IMO in recent automotive history.  
full
 
The second gen didn’t do so well that FCA has recently discontinued it this year along with their Dodge Dart compact.

It’s a beautiful car if you ask me.

Fun fact about that Sebring- its grille is completely fake. The car gets all the cooling air it needs through the less obtrusive lower grille, but the solid upper “grille” was kept for the sake of appearance.

It drank fuel like a elephant! I still occasionally see some driven around, reminded of how large they are compared to most of today’s cars. That was the exact same colour on the one of my aunt’s.
 
Another of my aunt in law had a 1995 Chrysler Sebring coupe.  
full
 
She traded it shortly after like two years, for a 97’ Infiniti QX4.

This thing sips fuel like mad. To think she used it as her daily driver. Still drives it to this day, but only for going to church and on weekends.

I’ve watched RCR since December 2013. I found the channel as a suggested video on Youtube. It was his old Echo. I wondered why the hell it was there, and clicked on it out of curiosity. I watched it, and then a couple more, and then subscribed. Not too long afterwards, and article on Jalopnik was posted about RCR.
 
I like the videos because they have a mix of cars, Mr. Regular’s English degree, and the occasional trip DOWN TO BROWN TOWN.

I like how he explains the settings in the times when the cars he reviewed were made in. His personification of some cars, and the humourous generalization of people who driven certain cars.

Not all makes had colorful interiors in the 90s. Both the 95 and 97 Plymouth Voyager (well, those my Parents had at least) had grey interiors though yes there were 91-96 B Bodies which had red and blue interiors. And yes I do watch RCR. The first RCR video I watched was for a 1976 Chevette and I couldn’t understand most if not all the words he said in the start of that particular video.

Suzuki basically brought their own downfall on the world stage by copying Daewoo cars.  
They were more know for their motorcycles and offroad vehicles.  
I still see a lot of SX4 driven on the road.
 
 
Mitsubishi barely exists. They pretty much only have the RVR crossover and the larger Outlander, the Mirage subcompact, and the Lancer compact sedan to compete with he big players now. They sell for lower price than most other brands. I miss their Eclipse roadster and their EVO Lancers.
 
 
What do you guys think of subcompacts? Like the Chevy Sonic, Toyota Yaris, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, Fiat Abarth 500, Smart Fourtwo, and Nissan Versa?
 
 
I’ve also noticed the Mini Coopers are quite popular with women drivers. 90% of the Mini drivers I see are women.
 
 
@kleptomage  
2017 is going to be an interesting year for the automotive world.
 
Man, Kia has taken growth hormones over these few years to become one of the major players on the field now.  
The Kia Soul, which remains popular, is the only “Cube” type vehicle still being sold at the present.
 
Nissan Cube, Scion xB, and Honda Element are gone from the North American market.

The Kia GT will debut at the Detroit Auto Show January 8th. I’m eager to see if it will be only RWD or if AWD will be available. A rear-biased AWD system like Jaguar has would be great.

My aunt used to drive this.  
full
 
The 1995 Cadillac Seville STS.
 
The first time seeing such a large car after freshly immigrated from Taiwan, where smaller Japanese cars and motor-scooters were the standard modes of transportation, back then was unprecedented.
 
The front hood is as large as a queen sized bed!
 
I miss my dad’s 1998 Mercury Villager…  
It was a sturdy and comfortable van. Simple and fun to ride.  
It’s got a crazy commercial as well  
Initially used as a family and grocery hauler. Later used as a work van when we got our Honda Accord.  
Gave it to my uncle, who later sold it for cheap.

Yeah, market it as something classically American to attract the traditional audience, and to attract younger customers, use the road trip idea, but actually show a group friends enjoying it instead of a bunch of angsty hipsters.
 
That’s something I’ve noticed with pop culture and the mood these days. People seem to be always agitated and dejected.  
Compare that to the sunny stuff they had in the 70s and 80s, when everything naturally looked optimistic and exciting in sight and tone. It’s almost like people just forgot to be happy after the 2000s.
 
Everything is either lazily done or freaking forced these days.
 
Why did GM discontinue Oldsmobile?  
They tried to make it a brand that is in tier slightly higher than Chevrolet, but just below Buick.

The thing that bugs me about alphanumerics is that they don’t mean anything. It used to be that “335i” meant “3 series, 3.5 liter engine, fuel injected.” Simple, easy to understand, and informative. Now, though, there’s things like “MKT,” “QX50,” or “XT5” that mean absolutely nothing, and even formerly descriptive names don’t mean what they should.
 
If I’m not mistaken, Batman’s Batmobile was based on an old Lincoln concept car right?
 
Yep, the Adam West era Batmobile (my personal favorite) was the Lincoln Futura concept:  
full  
A great looking car in its own right, and one of the very few that actually looks good with a bubble top.
 
 
What happened to Mercury is an object lesson in how to kill a car brand through neglect. By the end, they had no unique models, Ford pretty much overlapped with their market segment, and whatever little styling changes they had often made them look cheap and plasticky compared to Fords. (That left such a strong impression on me that I still have to actively remind myself that they were semi-luxury and not a budget brand.) Hopefully FoMoCo has learned it’s lesson and will give Lincoln a real reason to live. The Continental is a good start, but they need more than one unique car if they want to be relevant.

You can blame the Germans for the alphabetical names on luxury brand cars.
 
Also, I HATE what Lexus did to their IS 250’s headlights.  
full  
I know they tried to give it a more “scarred” and aggressive appearance. But instead made it look like it’s suffering from down syndrome.
 
Remember when Lincoln stood toe to toe against Cadillac? Those were the days.  
If I’m not mistaken, Batman’s Batmobile was based on an old Lincoln concept car right?
 
 
Instead, Ford discontinued Mercury. Their equivalent of GM’s Buick.  
Mercury cars were slightly upscale of Ford badge cars and were affordable.

Lincoln has been a neglected and largely irrelevant brand for a long time. It would have been better if Ford had discontinued Lincoln after the recession hit them and only brought the brand back when they had a solid lineup in the works.
 
Genesis has two cars, actually. The G80 and G90. I wish luxury brands would stop with the alphanumeric names. You read enough of them and they begin to blur together like the Acura MDX and Lincoln MKX.

Ford seems to lack enthusiasm for their luxury brand. I get the feeling they are only keeping it as a legacy badge or something. Lincoln is just… there. It’s the VIP chauffeur brand of some sort.
 
Genesis only has one car in it’s line up right now, the rebadged Hyundai Equus/Genesis. But I hear they’re going to come out with a full fleet line up next couple years.
 
If I recall, Kia also has some luxury models on their badge right? The Cadenza and K900, pretty rare cars on the road. The Cadenza competes with Buick Lacrosse, Nissan Maxima, and the Toyota Avalon. It’s based on the Hyundai Azera.
 
 
Also,  
I don’t like the new Acura MDX grill… Prefer that “silver mask” one of the previous generation. At least the TLX still has it for now.

Volvo isn’t my cup of tea but their cars are nicer than anything Lincoln has.
 
@Flying Pancake  
I could spin a really depressing story out of the ad if I wanted to. The Continental is one of the last full size American sedans. An ad should emphasize it as something exceptional and uniquely American. The older demographic likely to shop Lincoln would eat that up.
 
@SeraphimDawn  
Apparently a lot of people didn’t like Lincoln’s old spread wing grill, which is why they changed it. Personally I liked it better than their current style which imitates Jaguar.
 
Genesis is ok. It’s not at the level of the established luxury brands but it doesn’t cost as much and is very likely more reliable. I wouldn’t mind having a V8 G90.

Little bit off topic but since it pertains to cars is anyone here into the Crazy Taxi series? Not that much has been done with it lately but I’m imagining a virtual reality remake for the fun of it. At this time there’s a huge lack of crossover MLP art with that game here on the ’Booru too.
