18. Ford Taurus
Back in the late ’80s, Ford caused a revolution with the introduction of the Taurus. This was one of the first truly modern American cars that ditched the heavy ladder-type chassis and a big engine. They went in a different direction with a sleek and aerodynamic body, new technology, and front-wheel drive.
Ford sold millions of them over the years. They even created a performance legend with the highly capable Taurus SHO, which is still a great all-around performance car.
