22: Pontiac Aztek
The Pontiac Aztek was one of the most poorly received SUV models ever released. When it came to the production model of the Aztek, it relied far too heavily on body cladding. Still, the concept got even worse when it came to extreme design. Pontiac is a performance brand and creating such an obscene-looking SUV drove enthusiasts crazy. While it’s true that the SUV boom was among us, the Aztek had no real value.
GM designers were toying with the idea of the Aztek and the Rendevous as being the next big thing. In theory, both of these SUVs kind of ended up being the very first modern crossover vehicles in a roundabout way. As time has progressed, the Aztek’s design has become less questionable, but the Aztek concept is still one of the most hideous concepts ever.
