Since 2019 BMW X7 [G07]
Well, BMW has done a pretty good job with their other SUVs, especially the latest X5. They took that, made the kidney grilles bigger, but not as monstrously large as we see on the X7, and the whole thing actually looks like a BMW.

The X7's grille should have been made to look more like that of the smaller X5, it's a good medium for the design.

Since 2019 BMW X7 [G07]
Not only that, it hardly looks like a BMW to start with. It looks like they slapped a Hofmeister Kink and an ugly nose on a Mercedes-Benz body. 2018-11-06 00:53
Since 2015 Chevrolet Silverado LD (Silverado) Mk.III [GMTK2XX]
Just like the Sierra, this generation of Silverado is still in production, solely built in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada as the 2019 Silverado LD, so I have edited this to reflect that. 2018-11-03 05:09
Since 2015 GMC Sierra Limited (Sierra) Mk.III [GMTK2XX]
Edited to reflect this as still being in production. GMC is assembling this generation in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada as the Sierra 1500 Limited (I simply set a second name as Sierra Limited, since this isn't listed here as Sierra 1500) for the 2019 model year, and is currently on sale. 2018-11-03 05:07
Since 2018 Chevrolet Silverado Mk.IV [GMTT1XX]
Would the CHEVROLET across the grille (as opposed to the bowtie on the center of the grille) on Custom and Custom Trail Boss trims (WT being a commercial-focused but not solely commercial only model, not sure if it would be allowed on here) be enough to warrant them being placed in as a 'Trim Difference'? 2018-11-03 04:10
Since 2018 Ford Transit Connect MkII
Probably a version of the Duratec 20.

The Ford USA website simply calls it a 2.0L GDI.

Since 2013 Ford Fiesta MkII [Global B]
Since when was the Fiesta built in Tennessee? Ford doesn't even have an assembly plant in that state. 2018-09-23 17:18
Since 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Dune (Coccinelle Dune)
Update: Though it's not listed on the Japanese VW website, I can confirm that the Dune WAS sold in Japan officially, as I've found RHD Dunes on Goo-Net, confirming it's availability, so Japan can be changed to a YES. 2018-09-14 05:01
Since 2019 Kia Telluride
Well, if a Sorento can go off road with only light modifications (off road tires, skid plates, and disconnected sway bars), a bone stock Telluride should do just as well. 2018-09-09 23:36
Since 2019 SSC Tuatara
Gotta say, this is a car for the US to be proud of. Not long after the original concept debuted, most wrote this off as no more than a one off that couldn't be produced, but instead, SSC spent all of these years since developing and testing the engine, updating the design to this production ready look while still remaining true to concept.

It's gonna be awesome seeing this thing unleashed to top speed.

Since 2018 Kia K900 Series II
Such a shame that, unlike Genesis, this car doesn't get it's own unique look, instead looking like a copy of a Mercedes-Benz S-Class with an interior that looks part S-Class and part 7 Series. It's not ugly, it's just too derivative. 2018-08-30 23:17
Since 2016 Samsung QM6
It's a Korean market Koleos, simple as that, just like the predecessor QM5. 2018-08-30 02:11
2018 Renault Arkana
Now this is how you do the whole 'coupe-crossover' style. It's got some similarity to the GLE Coupe in the rear, but overall the new Renault design language really translates well to this kinda thing. Based on the Kaptur (not the smaller Captur), apparently. 2018-08-30 00:50
Since 2014 Cadillac Escalade Series IV [GMTK2XX]
Should be 2014 only, 2015+ (2016+ model year in the US) Escalades have the new Cadillac crest, and apparently the chrome around the lower intake was also slimmed down a bit. 2017 model year and newer models have an updated grille and headlights, while the center console was redesigned for the 2018 model year. 2018-08-15 01:06
Since 2018 Honda Pilot Series III
Won't be on sale in Canada until August 24th. Also, the Canadian market will get an exclusive Black Edition model, similar in look to the Black Edition offered on the Ridgeline.

1994-1997 Volvo 850 R
This Japanese commercial has both the saloon and the Kombi versions, but the Kombi only shows up at the end, so I wasn't sure if it was worth posting on that version's page for the 2 or so seconds it appears. 2018-07-21 23:25
1981-1984 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Mk.III [F-Body]
Didn't expect this to show up on YT, a Japanese market ad for the 1983 Z28E (E standing for European specification). 2018-07-21 23:10
1992-1994 Autozam Clef
Only one commercial for this car on YouTube, but two versions where the only difference is the ending. In the one posted here, the Autozam logo at the end appears in a domino-like fashion, while the other simply shows the logo without special effect. I chose to add the effect version instead, it's got a little extra charm to it. 2018-07-21 23:02
1992-1994 Autozam Clef
Definitely has to be a coincidence. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if both this and that generation of Grand Am (mostly the Pontiac) influenced the rear of the second generation Chrysler Concorde. 2018-07-21 22:57
1992-1994 Autozam Clef
Anyone ever notice how similar the back end of the Clef is to a Pontiac Grand Am of the same time period? Not virtually identical, but there's some very clear similarities. 2018-07-21 01:12
Since 2018 Honda N-Van
Fifth member of Honda's H-Family of kei cars, I take it? Nice to see them continuing to be dedicated to expanding the lineup. Is it supposed to be a Vamos and/or Vamos Hobio replacement, or something to compliment the Acty lineup, similar to how the Daihatsu Hijet Caddie (commercial variant of the Wake) compliments the Hijet lineup?

Is it just me, or does something seem off about the Spark 1/43 #318? 2018-05-13 02:24
2009-2014 BMW X6 M [E71]
Along with Bburago, Kyosho also has a 1/18 of this available. 2018-05-11 13:11
2007-2010 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR Series II
Also done in numerous paint schemes in 1/64 by Hot Wheels. 2018-05-11 03:59
2014 Nissan Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo
Other brands that have released this car in diecast form, for those who want references:

- Kyosho: 1/43 (Gunmetal, Ultimate Silver, Ink Blue)
- Hot Wheels: 1/64 (Silver)
- Tomica Limited Vintage Neo: 1/64 (Blue, Grey, White)
- Maisto: 1/32 (Red)

2013-2015 Chevrolet Silverado Mk.III [GMTK2XX]
I know there's no page on here for the previous generation Silverado, but the Majorette castings are of said generation, not this one.

This generation of Silverado has been replicated in 1:64 by Matchbox and Greenlight.
2018-05-10 18:23
2015 Infiniti Vision GT
Not France exclusive. The US market actually got these shortly before Toys R Us announced they were going out of business. I was lucky enough to get the complete singles, including this one, which was limited to one per case. 2018-05-10 05:57
2014-2017 Subaru WRX STi
Don't forget the plain blue debut version of the Majorette model and the Racing Cars series release. There's also the awkwardly proportioned Matchbox police casting, along with a handful of Tomicas, in case anyone plans to add them. 2018-05-10 05:55
2014-2017 Ford F-150 MkXIII
Still never understood why they went ahead with that 'The Beast' paint scheme, when the actual one from Geiger Cars is the previous generation SVT Raptor. I've got the plain one in grey in my collection. Much nicer looking. 2018-05-10 05:53
2012-2016 Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet (Coccinelle Cabriolet)
Never knew Majorette did the convertible version of this. All I've ever heard of was the GSR, which I own. 2018-05-10 05:50
2012-2014 Ford Mustang Boss 302 MkV [S197]
For some reason, I figured it was gonna be the Majorette version that gets listed here first. I've got that exact one in my collection, shame it doesn't have an opening feature like the brand's Challenger and Camaro castings.

I know that a few other brands have done this Mustang, too. There's a similar true 1/64 Auto World one, Maisto did a rather cheap (and somewhat oddly proportioned) version, Hot Wheels did the Laguna Seca version, and Greenlight did the racing version, the Boss 302R.

Since 2016 Mini Cabrio Cooper S
Euro-spec page, US-spec images...I don't get it. 2018-05-08 15:29
Since 2015 McLaren 570S
Not a bad start on the model cars, but there's others as well. TrueScale Miniatures makes a 1:43 scale resin model as well as a 1:18, Tecnomodel also has a 1:18 scale model. 2018-05-05 02:46
Since 2015 Jaguar XE S [X760]
Well, word has it that the ATS and CTS will be replaced by two new models with the 'CT' nameplating, specifically a CT3 and CT4 to replace the ATS (not sure if the 3 would be the sedan and 4 the coupe, similar to BMW, or perhaps the reverse), and a CT5 to replace the CTS.

It also seems like the Japanese brands are the only ones sticking to their guns with cars, along with crossovers and SUVs. Mitsubishi's sticking with the Mirage and Mirage G4 for the long run, even with just three CUVs alongside it in the lineup.

Honda's keeping a great mix in their lineup, with CUVs based on or closely related to their cars, but not at the expense of the cars (Fit/HR-V, Civic/CR-V, Accord/Pilot), plus a truck and a minivan (Honda being only one of two brands in the US offering a pickup and a minivan in their lineup, the other being Toyota, because I'm not sure if the Transit Connect truly fits as a minivan), and will likely benefit the most from other company's product cuts.
2018-04-28 01:34
Since 2015 Jaguar XE S [X760]
Ford's cuts are pretty much confirmed.

From what I've heard ONE of the three (300, Charger, Challenger) will get cut, with replacements for the other two coming in 2021.

I've heard about GM considering cutting the Sonic, Impala, Volt and XTS, but nothing about the LaCrosse or CT6. The XTS needs to go, anyway. It really doesn't make sense to have two similarly sized sedans in the lineup, even if one is FWD and the other RWD. Kinda similar to why Lexus is considering cutting the GS and keeping the ES.

Still, the automakers are gonna eventually kill the US auto market with crossovers and SUVs, especially when gas prices are on the climb once again...and, even after the summer season is over, they're not likely to go back down as much as they have.
2018-04-27 13:32
2018 Everus EV
I don't know if anyone else has noticed, but this concept is clearly an EV version of the Honda Vezel/HR-V. 2018-04-27 05:12
Genesis (USA) Well, by 2020, they plan to introduce a coupe (possibly somewhat previewed by the Essentia) and two SUVs. They're actually selling quite well, and recently jumped to the very top of Consumer Report's vehicle scoring and vehicle reliability rankings.

Give 'em time, and they'll have an even bigger and better lineup.
2018-03-31 01:19
Since 2018 GMC Sierra Denali Mk.IV [GMTT1XX]
Clearly, GMC is looking to revolutionize the pickup truck market with the new Sierra.

Two new GMC exclusive, industry first features available for the Sierra are the new MultiPro Tailgate, with six unique positions and functions, with a smaller tailgate portion that can be pulled down, while the rest of the tailgate stays in place, and the revolutionary CarbonPro cargo box, which is the first ever production pickup truck bed made with carbon fiber inner panels and floor. While the rest of the cargo box remains roll-formed high strength steel, the CarbonPro setup shaves 62 lbs from the standard bed's weight.
2018-03-02 04:17
Cupra In that case, we should spell smart with a capital 'S', even though the manufacturer uses lower case. See what I mean? 2018-02-24 02:17
Cupra According to the official website, it's CUPRA, in all caps.

2018-02-23 23:31
2018 Cupra Ibiza
Yes. SEAT is basically turning their high performance Cupra models into a separate brand, similar to what Volvo plans to do soon with Polestar. 2018-02-23 23:27
Seat It's official, SEAT's Cupra models are officially becoming their own brand. It was announced with the unveiling of the new CUPRA Ateca. 2018-02-23 04:28
Red Bull As of the 2018 season, the team is now known as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing. 2018-02-19 17:43
2016-2018 Honda Vezel RS
Shame they don't offer this on the US-market HR-V. Would make a very sharp Sport trim. 2018-01-26 23:59
Since 2014 Nissan Juke
Pretty obvious that the successor will be a localized version of the Kicks. 2018-01-10 16:22
1994-2000 Opel Tigra [A]
Question: We've got cars on here that aren't listed as being sold in Japan (XJ and KK Cherokee, Ford Explorer, Cadillac Seville and Deville, and this Tigra, for examples), but I've found commercials on YT for them from Japan, could they still be listed on the closest matching page? 2018-01-08 17:23
1992-1997 Chrysler Concorde Series I [LH]
Some of the commercials in '93 for the Concorde mentioned some of the same things, but there were multiple versions, longer and shorter, along with a few other different ads as well. 2018-01-08 16:50
1996-1999 Toyota Cavalier
Two videos of promotional advertising. One contains two ads, one for the coupe and one for the sedan, while the second is a single ad with both bodystyles. 2018-01-08 00:04
1992-1994 Nissan Altima (Stanza Altima) MkI
When introducing the first generation Altima, Nissan parodied two iconic Lexus commercials, 'Balance' (1989, LS400) and 'Ball Bearing' (1992, ES300).

In both commercials, they still remained complimentary of Lexus, but also showed that their affordable midsizer could perform just as well, all at a starting price of $13,000 (equal to a little over $22,000 in 2017).

A version of the 'Balance' parody was also made for the Hong Kong market Bluebird in 1994.

2018-01-07 20:30
1991-1996 Lexus ES Series II
Another iconic Lexus commercial, 'Ball Bearing' for the 1992 ES300. Became iconic to the point that Nissan parodied it in 1993 (along with Balance) to advertise the first generation Altima. 2018-01-07 20:23
