Cars come and cars go — it’s just the life cycle of vehicle models. As the needs of the driver change and evolve, and the automaker flirts with different offerings, some models just don’t have what it takes to keep up. Here are some of the most notable cars getting the axe after 2015.
For most Americans, cars are about getting from point A to point B as cheaply as they can. These people don’t want any fancy features, plush interiors or a strong power train.

The 2015 BMW X6 M is the baddest performance SUV or SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) on the market. With a combination of rabbit-like agility, turbo technology, high-performance braking and the intelligence of Apple’s iOS, this Bimmer Beast is more dominant than Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch on a go-kart.
