19: Isuzu VehiCROSS
The VehiCROSS was dubbed a “halo car” with the original intent being to get brand recognition for Isuzu. This SUV had a lot of notable features to it which made it stand out from the crowd. Although the platform was based on the tried-and-true Rodeo, the exterior design was brand new.
At the time, there was nothing else quite like the VehiCROSS on the road, the unique look of the vehicle made it stand out. The performance of the Rodeo-derived V6 engine was much more than most consumers needed at the time, and it still holds up well today.
