Automotive.com Editors Pick Our Reasonable 2013 Christmas Wishlist
In case you couldn't tell, your humble editors all love cars. We're fanatics, and we happily provide you with anything you could ever want regarding the mainstream car market. If ever you're looking for something from us that we've not yet covered or need advice, we're happy to provide it here, here, and here. We like offering up our advice to help your wishlist become reality. But sometimes, we have our own desires. Since we're in the Christmas spirit, we've compiled a list of reasonable vehicles that fall into the mainstream market that we'd love Santa to bring on his merry sleigh. Mind you, moving thousands of pounds of metal on a levitating sleigh might be tough, but if anyone can do it, it'd be Santa. Below, our editors have put together some words to explain what they'd ask Jolly Saint Nick, if they're being wholly reasonable. Happy Holidays!I've been in the market for a new car, and with holiday deals going on at almost every dealership I drive past, it's hard not to pull in and do some test drives. I've narrowed down the top two features I want in my next car. It has to have a manual transmission and it has to be a convertible. For my reasonably priced holiday wish, I want a 2014 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS. I've looked at other convertibles, but none offer a manual transmission and a convertible model for under $50,000. The starting price for a convertible Camaro starts at just over $31,000, and when you jump up to the SS model, you're looking at $41,995 before destination and handling. I'd say that's a price I can get behind, especially considering the amount of performance you get for the money.
The Cadillac ELR will soon arrive in dealerships ahead of its official January on-sale date.
