Eight Vehicles You Probably Didn't Know You Could Still Buy New

2009 Dodge Durango/Chrysler Aspen

Although most of the cars on this list are surprising for the fact that they still exist in some form, we're honestly more shocked that Chrysler's full-size SUVs were canceled in the first place. Granted, they were both a bit long-in-the-tooth and weren't selling well, but that could be said for several vehicles in the Mopar fleet. In fact, their cancellation came mere months after the launch of new hybrid variants that used the same Two-Mode system used in General Motors trucks. Now Chrysler is alone among major American manufacturers in not offering a full-size, body-on-frame SUV. None of the hybrids remain, but as of press time, there are exactly six of the trucks still up for the taking nationwide.

I have to admit I'd never even heard of the Mitsubishi Raider.
I completely disagree with my colleague David Zenlea about the styling of the last-generation Taurus and Sable (nee Ford Five Hundred). I think these are very handsome, if conservative, sedans that have been given a bum rap due to their weak launch powertrain, a 200-hp V-6 mated to a straining CVT transmission. Later versions upped the power significantly, and this generation made FAR better use of interior space than the current bloated Taurus does. So there.
