New Car Tracker: July 2012

Dart_on_sale
Summer always brings exciting new convertibles to be displayed front and center outside the dealership with the top down. At BMW lots, the 560-horsepower M6 convertible is now on sale, while across the street at Mercedes-Benz sits the redesigned and now-available SL-Class. Also, heavy hitters we’ve been anticipating through the year are now on sale, including the redesigned Nissan Altima, Dodge Dart and Ford Escape.

As always, we remind our readers that we don't list rumored models, only confirmed vehicles and time frames.
