This is the list of light vehicles sold in the U.S. that will not be having their prices increase by 25% due to Trump administration tariffs.

If you want a big truck (but not too big, RAM 2500/3500 models will go up 25%) , big SUV or Honda sedan, you’re in luck.

Note that all Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda, Mitsubishi and Volvo models will go up in price, as will all VWs except the Passat. It will be good news for the Honda CRV (US built), but not the Toyota RAV4 or Subaru Forester or the Mazda CX5. Mazda has been struggling in the US market for years. I would expect them to pull out if the tariffs linger, with Mitsubishi and VW not far behind. With the capricious nature of U.S. trade policy, it would not be a wise investment to build manufacturing facilities here.

Carpe Diem

Maybe I should buy that new Mazda Miata RF to replace my ‘97 M Edition sooner rather than later.
