18: Chevrolet Venture
The minivan segment has been dominated by Chrysler for decades but that doesn’t mean that other automakers haven’t tried to jump into the mix. General Motors had many failed attempts to attract interest in the minivan market, although the Venture seemed to be the most successful. The problem with the Venture and its corporate twin, the Pontiac Trans Sport, is that they both received one of the worst crash test ratings in history by the IIHS-HLDI (via Money Inc.).
Once the news got out about the horrible safety rating, the Venture was quickly disregarded. Although there were several unique standard features, it just was not enough to dethrone the dominant Dodge Caravan. There were a few special editions of the Venture, such as the WB Edition, which was designed as a family-oriented luxury minivan. But none of this was enough to make the Venture a brand that would stick around.
