26: Isuzu Ascender
By the early 2000s, the SUV industry was a hot segment of the automotive industry. The Ascender was a clone of the Chevrolet Trailblazer and GMC Envoy. Isuzu didn’t have any new models on the market and the brand needed one, thus GM loaned the company a platform in exchange for the design of the Colorado/Canyon models.
There was nothing to differentiate the Ascender from other models aside from its large chrome grille. The retail price for the Ascender was a tad bit less than a comparable TrailBlazer, but that didn’t help sales. Isuzu folded in America shortly after the Ascender was discontinued from the market.
