    Ford Maverick

    Ford...Maverick

    The 4x4 is based off of the Nissan Terrano II, and was only sold in Europe. The pony car on the other hand, well that was North and South America exclusive. So they probably assumed that it doesn't have any name heritage in Europe.
    Still a bad name revival though.

    Well, they are already planning to revive the nameplate as a.... SUV.

    The Nissan Terrano II is what the police uses in my area

    What's wrong with the Duster? It's one of few cars that have actually really suitable name.
    OT:

    Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. It's really nice car and it's unique because it has an interior which wasn't "screened."
    But, which person was that uncreative to give this car a name Eclipse Cross. A name from a legendary coupe. Ridiculous. They should've come with something more unique and suitable.

    I'm just pointing out that the name's kinda funny for the vehicle it is (especially when the duster you're first thinking of is the house duster).

    There was also a Plymouth Duster muscle car in the 70s.

    Comparing a Terrano II to a Tracker is like comparing a Acura TLX to a Nissan Maxima.

    Anyways, I like how Dacia named this vehicle "Logan".

    I don't know if it's supposed to be named after the common first name Logan, but if it is, it's definitely been a while since a model name was named after a common (or a person's) name.
