17: Mega Cruiser
The ‘large and in charge’ SUV craze of the ’90s took the world by storm. But what surprised people even more was the sudden popularity of the Hummer. What used to be only reserved for military usage was showing up in grocery store parking lots. Toyota wanted to jump on this craze and used the expertise as an off-road builder to design the Mega Cruiser. The SUV was nothing more than a poorly constructed clone of the H1. Sales were horrible with only 3000 examples sold in its entire run.
Drivers did get the stellar reliability and off-road capability of a Toyota product. But in the long run, it was just frowned upon for its ugly looks. There was absolutely no appeal to the Mega Cruiser whatsoever. The obscene-looking SUV never made it to the stateside and Toyota decided to pull the plug early on.
