For me, it’s Nissan. Chrysler (actual Chrysler) probably has a worse lineup overall, but I’m not disappointed in them because Chrysler has never had a decent lineup.
The Juke is cool, but needs a refresh. The Maxima and Murano are probably fine, but everything else is ancient junk. It hurts to call the 370Z junk, but that car in no way competes with a Mustang anymore.
Here are my requests from Nissan:
- Sub-$40k 2-door hyper attention-grabbing electric car with updated Leaf drive-train
- Nissan 250Z, a BR-Z competitor with a high-revving 2.5L and an optional turbo. 2-doors, 2 seats, RWD, LSD standard, and for the love of god make it light weight.
- Share the 2.5L engine options with the refreshed Juke which will obviously be aimed at the WRX/FoST/GTI, but AWD standard and way the hell weirder.
- Some crossover that makes money, I guess
