28. Holden UTE
As you might know, like Americans, Australians adore big engines and rear-wheel-drive platforms. Australia’s Ford and Holden, a GM brand, deliver such vehicles. But Australians introduced a few body styles Americans have long forgotten.
They include light pickups based on rear-wheel-drive sedans. If you remember the Chevrolet El Camino or Ford Ranchero, you will recognize the idea. In Australia, they call it the Ute. It is a popular vehicle for work and recreational purposes. However, the most interesting model Holden offers is the crazy SSV Ute. It comes with a GM 6.3-liter LS3 engine bringing 412 HP to the rear wheels. Think of it as an El Camino SS for the 21st century.
