Cars Being Discontinued in 2024

With new models rolled out for 2024, especially to make room for newer electric vehicles, it’s the end of the line for many others. Several major car brands have discontinued models that will no longer be made after 2024.

20. Dodge Challenger

Dodge Challenger

The second wave of gasoline-powered muscle cars from Dodge is about to reach their end. Dodge is making room for a line of electrified vehicles. In anticipation, the company released various “last call” special edition Dodge Challengers. One standout was the limited-edition Demon 170 with 1,025 horsepower and a mind-blowing 0-60 time of 1.7 seconds.

19. Dodge Charger

Dodge Charger

After a 17-year production run, Dodge is putting the Charger sedan to bed. The Charger Sedan has been a staple in its lineup since its 2006 debut. The Dodge Charger had a few majorly awesome models such as the Scat Pack, the Hellcat, and the Hellcat Redeye. In their place, Dodge will release the new Charger Daytona SRT EV.

18. Ford Edge

Ford Edge

The Ford Edge mid-size SUV is headed for the chopping block as the company transitions to electric vehicles. The company cited labor disputes at its Canadian assembly plant as another factor. The Edge will be continued at its plant in China, however, that model is a longer-wheelbase hybrid crossover. Ford has no plans to bring that version to America.

17. Chevrolet Bolt EUV

Chevrolet Bolt EUV

In 2022, Chevy introduced a larger Bolt EUV that offered more interior passenger space. The model also was the first to offer Super Cruise on a Chevrolet product. Nonetheless, the model is now discontinued as of 2024. There is a new Ultium-based Bolt expected in the next few years, but it’s unclear whether it will include a larger EUV.

16. Kia Stinger

Kia Stinger

The Kia Stinger was rumored to be discontinued before the 2023 model year. However, the company kept the sporty sedan in its lineup for another short run before it plans to end production in 2024. As a sendoff, Kia introduced a Tribute Edition Stinger model with Moonscape matte paint and new 19-inch wheels. Only 1,000 units were planned worldwide.

15. Dodge Hellcat Models

Dodge Hellcat Models

Dodge is not only discontinuing the Challenger and Charger names in 2024, but the company announced its plans to also kill the entire Hellcat line. A final hellcat engine was reportedly in production as of late-2023, early-2024. After that build, the iconic supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine will be phased out.

14. Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring

Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring

This was Lincoln’s mid-size SUV hybrid option. This plug-in-hybrid vehicle had qualified for the full $7,500 tax credit offered in the US. Unfortunately, Lincoln removed the Grand Touring as part of this year’s lineup. In 2024, Lincoln will only offer the Aviator, which will only be available with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6.

13. Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe

Last year, Mercedes discontinued the A-Class and CLS. For 2024, Mercedes-Benz is killing off its C-Class Coupe (and its C-Class convertible also). The company is killing off its two-door coupes in other classes as well. It appears Mercedes is leaving only its 4-door sedans in their lineup for the foreseeable future.

12. Mazda MX-30

Mazda MX-30

Mazda will discontinue its compact MX-30 EV in 2024. It started at $34,645 and was a relatively fun drive. However, for its asking price, its range was abysmal at only 100 miles. Further, the vehicle was only available in California. Hopefully, electric SUVs with far better range are on the way from Mazda.

11. Ford Fiesta

Ford Fiesta

Although Ford stopped selling the Fiesta in the US in 2019, the seventh-generation model has still been available in Europe. In 2024, Ford will discontinue production at its German factory, with the last models rolling off in June. To replace the Fiesta in its lineup, Ford will introduce an all-electric version of the Puma crossover.

10. Mercedes-Benz Metris

Mercedes-Benz Metris

Although the average driver may not be consciously aware of this model, there is no doubt everyone has seen this van on the road. The Mercedes-Benz Metris has been a staple among work vans since 1996. In 2024, Mercedes-Benz is not only discontinuing the work version of the Metris but the passenger version as well

9. Ford Transit Connect

Ford Transit Connect

The Ford Transit Connect was the smallest work van model that Ford offered. Unfortunately, it will meet its end in the 2024 model year. The company originally said it had planned to replace the Transit through its Maverick line. However, it appears that those plans have reportedly been scrapped now as well.

8. Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe

Along with killing coupes in its C-Class, Mercedes-Benz is also killing off the E-Class Coupe (and E-Class Cabriolet convertible as well). Mercedes-Benz appears to be killing off all of its two-door models, leaving only four-door sedans. Whenever the updated AMG GT debuts, it will be the only true coupe in the lineup.

7. Chevrolet Bolt EV

Chevrolet Bolt EV

Chevrolet’s affordable electric vehicle, the Bolt EV, debuted in 2016. An updated version arrived in 2022 offering new technology and a sharp redesign. In 2024, Chevrolet will kill off the Bolt EV. Chevy has promised a new Bolt as part of its advanced Ultium EV platform. However, when and if a new Bolt will debut is unclear.

6. Chrysler 300

Chrysler 300

After an 18-year run following its debut in 2005, Chrysler will bring its 300 model muscle car sedan to an end. In 2024, only 2,300 units were produced in both the V6 and V8 variations. The 300 delivers 485 horsepower, reaches 0-60 in 4.3 seconds, does the quarter-mile in 12.4 seconds, and hits a top speed of 160 mph.

5. Audi TT

Audi TT

The Audi TT has enjoyed a 25-year run. Now, after two and a half decades, Audi has decided to kill off its iconic sports car. Last year, the UK received a Final Edition model for 2023. In 2024, Audi introduced the RS Heritage Edition as the last of its kind for the US.

4. Chevrolet Camaro Turbo

Chevrolet Camaro Turbo

Another re-envisioned modern muscle car that will bite the dust in 2024 is the Chevrolet Camaro Turbo. The Camaro name will leave the lineup in 2025. Chevrolet ended the four-cylinder Camaro in 2023, with the 2024 base motor being the 3.6-liter V6 generating 335 horsepower. That version starts at $32,494.

3. Kia Rio

Kia Rio

Globally available since 1999, the Rio is the smallest vehicle Kia has produced. The current generation made its debut in the US in 2016. As of 2024, it remained one of the least expensive vehicles in America, with the base price starting at $17,875. The Rio’s replacement is unclear, but there’s still a chance Kia could introduce a new affordable offering next year.

2. The Ford Explorer Hybrid

The Ford Explorer Hybrid

If you work in law enforcement, you’ll still be able to buy a Ford Explorer hybrid. But for everyone else, this mid-size SUV will be gone in 2024. The current model debuted in 2020. Its replacement is unclear but many are hopeful another hybrid SUV will enter Ford’s lineup soon.

1. Nissan Maxima

Nissan Maxima

The Maxima was Nissan’s full-size sedan and was quietly discontinued as of 2024. Rumors circulated that Nissan would replace the Maxima with a full-size electric vehicle at the end of 2023 but that didn’t happen. The company is silent regarding a replacement. So far, it appears no new electric sedan from Nissan is on the way anytime soon.
