Goodbye, farewell to Ford F-150 (diesel), Toyota Land Cruiser

The 2020 Rolls Royce Wraith is the most powerful car manufacturer has ever made.

They’re just cars and trucks, simply transportation from some, nearly family members for others. And every year, plenty of vehicles bid farewell. Via poor sales, it’s out with the old, in with the new.

And usually, there’s extenuating circumstances. The Ford Bronco returned in 2021 after a 25-year absence.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith is among many cars and trucks, including to Toyota Land Cruiser and Ford F-150 (diesel) that will be discontinued after 2021 models.

For RVers, some of the departing vehicles have been reliable companions, some short-term, others icons. For 2021 goodbyes that includes the Ford F-150 (diesel) and Toyota Land Cruiser.

Ford didn’t have much success with the diesel version of the popular pickup truck.

According to Car and Driver, the manufacturer notes the diesel option fell out of favor with customers who prefer EcoBoost V-6 gas option.

The departure of the Land Cruiser was a surprise to some industry analysts. It’s often considered one of the most reliable used SUVs in the marketplace. In the supply chain crisis, some used Land Cruisers have sold for more than their original new price.

Exotic cars are the most difficult vehicles to follow. Some of made in limited editions, others like Rolls-Royce are sold out before models are available to public.

Here’s the list of cars and trucks which will be discontinued after 2021 models.
