7. Ford E-Series

Product is the most important force driving the automotive industry. Companies that invest in their vehicle lineups and keep them fresh are typically the ones that succeed with customers. But for mysterious reasons cars and trucks sometimes fall through the cracks. Vehicles that end up in this automotive blind spot can go years without any meaningful update.

One of the most senior models on the market today is Ford’s venerable E-Series van. This hard-working, blue-collar schlepper hails from the 1970s Planet because that’s when its underlying architecture was introduced. Yes, on its home world platform shoes, disco dancing and polyester are not just in vogue, they’re a way of life.

    Variety is the spice of life right? I’m glad we have “weird”, interesting cars rolling around. It sure beats a world filled with Beige Camrys.

    I agree with every entry, but am surprised that the Nissan Juke didn’t get at least an ‘honorable’ mention. Maybe it was too obvious. Haha! Nice job Craig!!

    I wonder why the GMC Hummer wasn’t listed. Everyone knows it’s a Hummer when they see that baby drive by.

    My car ranked #1 :) maybe most people are boring for not liking every single car on this list. I love all of them except for that ford van…I don’t do vans

    Also had an FJ when they came out but traded it for more towing capacity. So, “Take me to your leader”. And not Barry, we don’t suffer fools well.
