32. Cadillac Cimarron
Back in the ’80s, GM decided to introduce a small Cadillac with a lower price to attract more customers. The problem was that Cadillac didn’t have a small platform, so they turned to Chevrolet. Cadillac borrowed the modest Cavalier chassis and its small, sluggish four-cylinder engine.
Cadillac was under fire from brand loyalists for ruining their image, resulting in poor sales. All over the industry, the Cimarron was a laughing stock. To this day, it remains one of the worst examples of downsizing ever.
