5. Ford Excursion
The SUV boom was among us at the end of the ’90s and Ford needed something to compete with the Suburban. The Ford Expedition was a big SUV, but it couldn’t compete with GM’s extended-length family hauler. Thus the Excursion was born. Based on the heavy-duty truck platform, the Excursion was everything that the Suburban wasn’t. But the Excursion also had an immense amount of drawbacks to it. The first of which was the fact that the spark plugs would blow out the side of the engine.
To top things off, the vehicle got horrible gas mileage due to its massive Triton V10 engine. If you needed an SUV that can tow a house and still go to the beach then the Excursion was for you. But for the average consumer, the Excursion was just too much vehicle to be practical for everyday use.
