8. Honda Ridgeline
2006 — 2014
The Ridgeline is actually a fairly good idea — take a car-based crossover, butch it up with a moderately useful pickup-truck-style bed and sell something for people who like both the convenience of a pickup and the comfort of a car. It features a nifty trunk and a dual-action tailgate that can be either lowered like a pickup or swung to the side like an old Buick Roadmaster station wagon. The Ridgeline has been controversial due to its rather unconventional looks — the downward sloping lines of the body-integrated bed are awkward, and the chunky overall shape isn’t to everyone’s liking. Having front-biased all-wheel drive and lack of a V-8 engine doesn’t help it much among possible pickup buyers either.
