11: GM Dustbuster Vans
The minivan segment was created in the mid-1980s by Chrysler and no other automaker could replicate the success. But that doesn’t mean GM didn’t try, and the Dustbuster-themed vans were evidence of this. The Lumina, Trans Sport, and Silhouette were unique-looking vans, to say the least. Dubbed the “Dustbuster” vans by the automotive press, the styling was futuristic and unlike other 1990s cars in this market segment (via Jalopnik).
The sloped windshield gave the driver an incredible viewing angle from the road. The interior was more spacious than any other van on the market but the styling was difficult for consumers to get over. Nevertheless, these vans posted reasonable sales numbers in a short amount of time and GM stayed at the top of the minivan business for some time.
