16. Ford Contour
Ford was having an identity crisis during the ’90s and the brand had a far-reaching product portfolio. Sedan-wise, the company had a couple of cars all very similar in size and design This headache was known as the Contour, a sedan which didn’t fit in anywhere in the Ford lineup. The Contour was the same size as the cheaper Escort, looked almost identical, and was competing against the company’s own Taurus. What was the point of the Contour?
We’re not sure, but the sedan had a good deal of quality issues that plagued it into the next product cycle. The Contour could have been a hit for the company if it wasn’t already selling a trio of sedans. This was a problem for Ford, and as such the Contour went off into the sunset before the new millennium hit.
