Discontinued Chevy TrailblazerWhy are Vehicle Models Discontinued?

There are many reasons why vehicle models are discontinued. One of these reasons is the vehicle’s initial failure to sell when it was new. Some of these vehicles include the Pontiac Aztek, Chevrolet HHR, and Chevrolet SSR. A model’s evolution into a different vehicle is also another reason why the original was discontinued. A prime example of this scenario involves the Chevrolet Trailblazer, which became the Equinox and Traverse models that are currently available. Vehicle models are also discontinued due to shifts in vehicle trends and demands. One of the most perfect examples pertains to the minivan, which declined in popularity during the 2000s when SUVs became the preferred family vehicle. This trend shift resulted in the discontinuation of the Ford Windstar, Chevrolet Venture, Buick Terraza, and many other minivan models.

Why are Vehicle Brands Discontinued?

Like any and all brands in the world (which are not limited to just automobiles), many come and go, while some enjoy longevity. In the automotive industry, we have seen several brands—like Studebaker, Packard, and Hudson—enjoy the spotlight for awhile and then disappear. While those brands would be discontinued in the 1950s and 1960s, several contemporary brands were discontinued in the midst of the Great Recession in order for their parent companies to survive. These discontinued brands include Pontiac and Saturn (both by General Motors), along with Mercury (Ford).
