22: Eagle Talon
The Eagle Talon was a last-ditch effort to extract some excitement out of the younger automotive market. Up to that point, Chrysler was having a tough time connecting with younger buyers. The Eagle Talon is a badge-engineered Mitsubishi Eclipse. There was one major shortcoming on the Talon. The “beak” on the car is downright hideous.
When compared to the Eclipse, it’s easy to see why one outsold the other. Then you have its notable AWD system. While a good setup, in theory, it was difficult to maintain. There was no Talon without AWD so drivers were stuck with it. The Eclipse didn’t have the burden of AWD.
