If your Ford had a Matthew McConaughey, it would be a Lincoln

Modern cars you reckon are future classics.

I submit a truck.... A dime a million F150:But hear me out. This is no normal 12th generation f-150 because it has the 3.5 twin turbo v6. It’s both the first f 150 with a turbocharged gasoline engine, and the last F-150 to use a steel construction rather than an aluminum affair. It was also the first F150 with a Raptor model, if that makes a difference.

I don’t know much about the ecoboost motor because the 12th gen Ford Lobo was mostly sold with the V8, but it’s probably a fairly uncommon engine in the 12th gen trucks since it was only sold for three years (2011-2014) and despite the good performance, it was bound to be overshadowed by the Raptor.


I also think that the F30 Active Hybrid 3 will be a future classic, sold in small numbers due to it’s price and not necessarily worthy performance, to that just add the fact that after the LCI it was replaced by a four cylinder hybrid. Can you think of any other hybrid i6 BMWs apart from the other sales flop, the AH5? no... you can’t.


So, what cars do you think will be future classics? Here are the rules:

1. It must be a car that was meant to be high volume
2.It must be 2005 or newer
3.It must’ve not appreciated since it was sold new yet.
4.It can’t be a car that is a bound to be classic because of environmental factors (say, a 328d holding it’s value for longer for being a diesel in the US).
