The Mountain Dew Car Pack is available as a standalone purchase for Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox One and on Windows 10 PCs (Xbox Play Anywhere). As always, all the cars in the pack are compatible with both the Blizzard Mountain and Hot Wheels expansions.

[Mod Edit:]
- This pack is not part of the Car Pass, meaning everyone will have to pay for it if they want to use the cars.
- You won't be able to use the cars until the content update is released Tuesday at approx. 10 a.m. Pacific (1 p.m. Eastern time)
- Usually the most reliable way to obtain the pack without a glitch is to wait for the content update to install, reboot, enter the game, then go to the Marketplace or one of the Festival Site Autoshows to buy an included car, then wait for the pack to fully install, then reboot, then play.

I take the Ferrari, the Mitsubishi and the Dodge, but the rest is pretty much rubbish, sorry.

None of the pack's cars are must-drives for me. I'm more interested in finding out if a new barn find is included.

I'm happy to have them all except the Dart and the 3-11.
Much prefer the older cars and wait to see the kits that go with them.

It's ok.

Wonder what the reason was for the Eclipse being DLC this time around. Would've taken the better-looking '97-'98 GSX instead.

Strangely I'm looking forward to the Gremlin most, then the Ferrari.

I think 'meh' is the best way to describe this pack. Some alright cars, but there's just nothing that really grabs my interest like in some of the previous packs. The Eclipse being DLC is a bit of a strange one though.

As long as there is a Ferrari in there somewhere, it's not a bad car pack at all.

I like the following mainly


- 1996 Ferrari F50 GT
- 2013 Dodge Dart GT
- 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX

I hope this one is FREE!

Not a spectacular pack by any means -- far from it, actually -- but one that is saved by a few key inclusions:

Holden FX Sedan: Not hugely familiar with the world of Ozzie cars past, so it's kind of cool to see such a classic entrant into the genre. Will probably have some pretty cool body mods to go with it.

Lotus 3-Eleven: I don't know why, but for some reason I have been craving this car more than almost anything out there. It's weird because I'm not a huge Lotus fan -- or a fan of British metal in general -- but this one scratches me right where I itch, as did the 2-Eleven all those years ago and the 340R in F:H3.

Chevrolet Vega: cool since we've never seen it before in the Forza universe, and it actually made a pretty good drag car in its day.

The rest is either pretty meh -- yes, that includes the F50 GT since I tend to save super- and hypercars for the Motorsport series -- or downright shocking; I have NO IDEA why they included the Dart. I seriously thought it was a joke, or I was seeing things. Must have something to do with licensing, as in "oh you want to one day put the Giulia Quadrifoglio in your game? Only if you include THIS first." Then again, I've talked with folks that are in charge of licensing for certain games, and it appears that manufacturers will actually have to pay to have their cars in a game. That suggests to me FCA's dealing from a position too weak to make demands like that.

The Eclipse? I guess FnF fans will be happy but it's not for me, not even close. Unless Forzathon requires it, I I will drive it a grand total of none times.

The Gremlin X? It has its cultish following, so I guess there's that. It was also one of the Vega's main competitors in the domestics' race to counter the arrival of Japanese compacts so I can see why it's here.

Just did a quick comparison with ManteoMax's wish list analysis. Only the F50 GT, Dart, and Gremlin were in the top 200 requested cars.

The Dart was the most requested, with 12 requests. After it was the Ferrari with 9 and the Gremlin with 8.

Of course, I'm not implying that highly requested cars = a better pack, however it is easy to see why this may not generate quite the same kind of hype as other packs.

I clearly have no idea what I'm talking about (see my earlier post here). The Dart one of the most requested cars? You sure they're requesting THIS Dart?!?!? I just don't get it. At all.

Wow! What a disappointing pack LOL! I'm only into the eclipse and the f50 gt. The rest should've been either barn finds and/or forzathon rewards. This pack also reminds me of the ones we got back in FM6, which were also disappointing. It's time to go back to Horizon 2.

EDIT: Oh and I also do like the Vega.

All those people complaining are hilarious. Just because you don't like the cars that doesn't mean the pack it's [Mod Edit - Abbreviated profanity, profanity and profanity that is disguised but still alludes to the words are not permitted - D]. I love weird and quirky cars so for me this pack is great. Don't care about the Lotus and Ferrari but the rest is awesome. If you don't like it, skip it.

I'm curious also... I know historically Forza always used this model Eclipse but I think this would have been the perfect opportunity to use the, arguably, better looking refreshed version. While there's the opportunity to have the bumpers to replicate the refresh the headlights would need to be changed which is something I haven't seen before with customization (i.e. RSX) so I don't anticipate it happening unfortunately.

Time to reiterate this since it's the start of the month:

Don't like it?
Don't buy it.



Nothing in this pack interests me, so I won't be buying it. Not saying the cars are objectively bad or anything, simply stating that the allure of additional cars doesn't appeal to me when the base game has so many good ones I haven't used yet ;)

Not a bad pack. It has been a long while since the F50 GT made an appearance! (FH1 if I remember correctly). I'm glad they're still releasing car packs, hope this continues.

There's usually one hero car of the group that is not available as a $2.99 download; pack-only. Given the pack image, it's likely to be the Ferrari F50 GT that you'll only be able to get if you buy the entire pack. (but I don't know that at this moment)
