5. Cadillac Escalade EXT - 1,934 Units Sold

With a high price tag of $63,060, the Cadillac Escalade EXT landed itself in 5th place moving a mere 1,934 units throughout last year. Undoubtedly increasing gas prices didn’t help the Escalade’s selling point, but its outdated styling is its biggest deterrent at the dealership. The American automaker will continue to focus on style over mpg though, even for its next-generation model.

    If the Lancer Sportback was priced competitively, it would sell.  It looks good among the hatchbacks, it’s just not worth the money.  Also, autoguide, why include the GT-R, but not ?  Was this only including cars below $100K?

    The Acura ZDX is undisputed the worst vehicle on that list,When you take into consideration how big/respected a manufacturer Acura is and how identical it was to the MDX in everything but functionality/usability.

    Take an MDX don’t make it any lighter, faster, better turning, don’t give it improved fuel economy, then take away usable rear seats and storage space. It has the same basic shape of a Pontiac Aztek but is nowhere near as useful.

    awful awful awful design, in 87 years it’s easily going to be a top contender for the worst vehicle of the century. It represents ALL the bad characteristics of the CUV craze, it’s fantastically bad, almost comically bad. It’s like it’s a troll vehicle just made to lambaste the crossovers concept.
