6. Ford Bronco
Everything started in the mid-’60s when Ford realized that a market for compact and off-road capable SUVs was emerging. So Ford invested a lot of effort and money into constructing the Bronco since it had its own platform, suspension, and drivetrain components. Finally, they equipped it with straight-six and V8 engines, giving it enough power.
The Bronco was compact (via Bronco Bastards), making this Ford capable when the asphalt stops. The small dimensions meant that the interior was cramped, but buyers loved it nonetheless and sales went through the roof. The second and third generations were even more successful. However, despite solid sales, Ford decided to retire the Bronco in 1996 to concentrate on their pickup truck line as well as new SUV models. The first-generation Bronco is rapidly gaining popularity. Soon, it will be beyond the reach of the average customer.
