Forza Horizon 4’s Car Selection Has Some Surprising Omissions

Video Game / 13 Comments

The full car list for Forza Horizon 4 has been revealed – but where are Mitsubishi, Lexus, and Toyota cars?

A few weeks ahead of the game's launch, developer Playground Games has released the full car list for Forza Horizon 4, which will be speeding onto Xbox One and PC on October 2. Featuring over 450 cars at launch with more to be added as DLC, the car selection is as eclectic as you would expect for a Forza game.

Several new cars make their digital debut in Forza Horizon 4, including the game's cover car, the mighty McLaren Senna, as well as the 2018 Ford Mustang GT, 2017 Ford M-Sport Fiesta RS, and the one-off 2016 Volvo Iron Knight. Befitting the game's UK open world setting, a number of classic British machines also make their Forza debuts, from the 1962 Triumph Spitfire and 1964 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type to the 1973 Land Rover Range Rover.

Forza's car selections are usually masterfully curated to appeal to gearheads, and Forza Horizon 4 is no exception. Whether you like supercars, muscle cars or humble hatchbacks, there's something here for everyone. There are, however, some surprising omissions. Lexus and Mitsubishi are nowhere to be found, and Toyota is only represented by three (admittedly badass) trucks, so if you were hoping to tear around the British countryside in the new (or old) Toyota Supra, Lexus LC 500, or Mitsubishi Evo X, you're going to be disappointed.

"While our teams work hard to license hundreds of brands for Forza games, we can't always align our fans' desires with the interests of every licensor, as is the case here with Mitsubishi," the developer wrote in blog post. "As a result, we're unable to include Mitsubishi cars in Forza Horizon 4 at this time." Alas, licensing issues are beyond the developer's control, but it's odd these mainstream manufacturers don't want to be represented in the most anticipated racing game of the year.
