8: Pontiac Torrent
The Torrent was released toward the end of the brand’s lifespan and was actually a sporty SUV. The styling was a lot different than the Chevy Equinox that it was based on and drastically different than the Aztek that came before it. The Torrent is not going to win any off-road competitions, but if you want something sporty and good-looking, you can’t go wrong.
Plus, driving an SUV around that has a Pontiac badge on it always invokes a conversation no matter what. The Torrent was perhaps one of the most underrated SUV models released by GM in the past decade. You can find a Torrent for far less than the $5,000 asking price that it generally will command.
