30. Pontiac 6000
The 6000 was available as two and four-door sedan and wagon. Pontiac built it on a front-wheel-drive platform with its new four and six-cylinder engines. Interestingly, Pontiac even offered a diesel unit in the 6000. Debuting in 1981 as a 1982 model, the 6000 received a warm welcome from the motoring press as well as the market. And in 1984, Pontiac even offered the 6000 STE version, which was sportier and more dynamic than the regular model.
With a 2.8-liter V6 engine that developed 135 HP, the 6000 STE didn’t provide exciting performance numbers by today’s standards. However, in 1984, it was a relatively hot model. They sold the 6000 until 1991 when they discontinued it. Today, it is forgotten by most people, except perhaps fans of rare models.
