Eight vehicles you can still buy new – Click above for high-res image gallery

Was your heart crushed when vehicles like the Mercury Sable, Pontiac Grand Prix or Dodge Durango got the axe? Well, fear not – these hot little numbers (and many more!) are still available from dealerships all across the country.

Automobile magazine has detailed a list of eight cars that are still on sale – brand new – even though they aren't 2010 models. And while these vehicles don't necessarily represent the sexiest cars currently sitting on dealer lots, it's probably safe to assume that they're all being offered with substantial incentive packages, not to mention full warranties (we hope).

Click through the gallery below to see high-res shots of all eight rides, and head over to Automobile to read the full details.

      I'd take a G8 over a Grand Prix every time.

      That car deserved far better than it got.

        2008 G8 GT replaced my aging 1999 Grand Prix GTP 2 door.



        Still damned happy about my switch.

        Both of them deserved better! I was so pissed at GM when they redesigned the Grand Prix for 2004! I saw how the interior was dull and the front/rear fascias were horrendous. But then I bought my 2007 and loved it until 2013. .

      YOU FORGOT THE PT CRUISER

      I remember being at a dealership a few years ago, a month or two before the G8 came out and a dealership employee who was hanging out with us at the parts department talking about how he had just bought a brand new 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix. I asked him how and why he would buy such an aged car when it's spiritual successor was coming out soon, and he said "it's a really nice car". I pointed out that the Grand Prix, at the time, was a decent car but that the G8 was much nicer, and even the G6 had more available features due to it being newer (and refreshed for 07) than the old Grand Prix. He didn't quite understand what I was talking about.

      It's idiots like him that sell these things, albeit very very slowly.

        My 2007 was the best! I kept that until 230K miles and traded it in for my 2014 Malibu 2LZ. . . They are great cars for the money! One of my buddies buys, fixes/mods/tunes/details and sells them! He's had over 15 GP's in the past 5 years. .

        And the Uplander would have too except it died a year too early.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Correct, its a Ford Ranger with a Mazda Mask on. And as a previous owner of a Mazda B3000 trust me you don't want one.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The title of this post sucks, and doesn't really make sense. Should mention something about "previous model year", or "no longer in production"... something. To read it as is, I can buy hundreds of cars new... doesn't make sense.

      I'd LOVE the XLR... if it came with a proper gearbox. Sports car without manual as an option. Brilliant move GM!
        • 4 Years Ago
        While I personally would always prefer a manual to a standard, the XLR is not really meant to be a "sportscar" per se... that's what the Vette is all about.

        The XLR is much more of a luxo-cruiser than anything else. Not too many other cars in that same category have a stick... hell, even a large percentage of new Ferraris are now being sold with some kind of automatic transmission.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It may have been marketed as a luxury roadster, but the XLR still *felt* a heck of a lot like a Corvette... econocar interior quality, lingering plastic-resin smell, brittle-feeling ride.

        A manual would still have been very much in character with the car. And I would have wanted one!

      GP buyers are d-bags...roger that the first.

      But you didn't have to rub it in Matt... ;p

        Guess I'm a d**che bag then! I've owned a 1996, a 1998, a 2000, a 2001 and a 2007 Grand Prix. . I still have my 2000 and 2001 which both have less than 75K miles combined.

      it's a shame that the mercury sable wasn't a hit ,because it's not a badlooking car.
      • 4 Years Ago
      With the 2.3-liter Mazda four and a stick, the Ranger/B-Series are great little trucks. Honest little workhorses with no rhinestone-cowboy crap.

      Wagoner-era GM product planners should be forced to eat the remaining Uplanders.
