Chevy’s Last Sedan Could Meet Its End

Last year, Ford and GM discontinued almost all of their passenger cars, including sedans, hybrids, compacts and hatchbacks. Ford killed off the Focus, Fiesta, Taurus, Flex and Focus RS, and will discontinue the Fusion in July. Lincoln’s MKT, MKS and MKC have met their end, while the MKZ will leave in the summer. Buick discontinued the Cascada and LaCrosse. The Regal lineup, the Sportback, GS, Avenir and TourX, is up next. Cadillac discontinued the CT6, ATS, CTS, XTS and all of their V Sport variants. Finally, Chevy got rid of the Cruze, Volt and Impala, leaving the Sonic and Spark hatchbacks and the Malibu sedan. The Sonic’s future is bleak, and, according to GM Authority, the Malibu could see its end by 2023. Chevrolet wanted to discontinue it in 2025 after a 2023 refresh, but it seems that cost-cutting plans have changed this.

After the Malibu, Chevrolet will be left with their SUV and crossover lineup, the Silverado and Colorado pickup trucks, Express van, Corvette and Camaro sports cars and Bolt EV. Although, the Malibu could be replaced by an electric sedan as one of their 20 new EVs.

This is sad news, but we aren’t surprised after GM’s big sedan wipeout. They have plenty of new EVs to replace it with, and sales last year were disappointing compared to 2018. This is not official news, but it just might happen.
