1. Ford Exploder
And last but not least, another Ford vehicle. Just in case Tin Lizzie and Mistake weren’t enough we submit for your approval the name Exploder.
This midsize utility vehicle was tremendously popular during the 1990s; the company sold millions of these Ranger-based vehicles during the decade’s SUV craze. Of course today’s model rides atop a gussied-up automobile architecture for more refined dynamics and better efficiency.
Still, this truck earned an unfortunate nickname. Remember the Firestone scandal? Yeah, failing tires and rollover accidents will dull any nameplate’s luster. As a result the Exploder nickname was born.
