13: Chevrolet SSR
Enthusiasts have hoped for a revival of the El Camino for decades. Chevrolet teased a revival with the SSR, which had a similar design. Sadly, the SSR’s production model fell short in many areas. The styling, while like the El Camino, was a far cry from the car of the past. The truck bed on the SSR was almost worthless due to its bed cover (via The Truth About Cars). Then the styling with the bubble front clip looked like a roadster lost.
We’re not sure what GM was going for with the styling of the SSR. Its performance was alright thanks to the V8 powerplant, but from a practicality standpoint, the SSR fell short. Maybe something with a Camaro-themed styling might have proved to be a more popular option. GM had many weird designs coming out around the same time as the SSR. Most enthusiasts took a pass on the SSR, especially with its high price tag.
