From 1987 until 1992, the Brougham saw sales of over 220,000 units. This popular Cadillac was a full-size luxury 4-door sedan with three powerplant options, all above 5.0-liters and all V8s.

One of the cheapest minivan options available, the Sedona, from Korean auto manufacturer Kia, has met the highest of safety standards, an important consideration when traveling with your family. It is not the most economical and has less cargo space than some of its competitors, however.

Started by Henry Ford’s son, Edsel, in 1937, the Mercury brand was positioned in between the Ford and luxurious Lincoln brands. Although Ford ended the brand in 2010, some iconic Mercurys were built over the years including the Cougar XR7, a sort of upscaled Mustang.

A two-door coupe or fastback, the Crossfire was marketed by Chrysler between 2004 and 2008. It was designed and built during Chrysler's association with Daimler and interestingly features many Mercedes SLK parts. It was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 AMG engine.

A modern '60s throwback, this muscle car takes design features from all the classics and packages it together with a 6.4-liter V8 LS9 engine from General Motors which produces 640 brake horsepower. It will set you back a cool $250,000, however.

One of the most expensive cars ever produced, only 18 Ageras were made between 2011 and 2014. The Agera One:1, the most potent model produced features a 5.0-liter engine pushing out over 1,300 brake horsepower.

With its four headlights, Phoenix decal on the hood, massive air scoop and sleek lines, the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am certainly looked the part. And car lovers bought it in droves, with over 100,000 sold that year alone.

General Motors introduced the Saturn brand in 1990 as a way of competing with the range of Japanese brands and their smaller cars offered in the United States. The Sky was a convertible produced by Saturn from 2006 to 2009. GM discontinued the Saturn brand in 2010.

Although its design (effectively brick-shaped) only allowed a top speed of 65mph, the FC-150 certainly is something to behold. Built on the same wheelbase as the CJ-5, the FC-150 looked far bigger thanks to the massive cab put on top of it.The FC-150 handled well, gave an excellent view of surroundings and was capable off-road.

Part of Hyundai's luxury division, the G80 was first introduced in 2016. This 4-door luxury sedan has eight different engine options.

Produced by Dodge between 1955 and 1956, this 2-door hardtop was specifically aimed at the fairer sex. Only 2,500 were sold in a two-year period, although little evidence suggests that it was well marketed.

One of Ford's offerings in the highly competitive compact crossover market, the Escape has sold close to 1.5 million units in the past five years. The Escape is not only popular in the States, however. Named the Kuga in other parts of the world, it sells well in Europe and Australia. It is available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive and has a six-speed gearbox as standard.

As the luxury brand of Nissan, Infiniti offers top-quality cars but a little pricier than other vehicles in their respective segments. The Q70 is certainly not cheap, even at entry level, but it does offer a host of onboard features, ample space for cargo and passengers and an excellent fuel-efficient hybrid engine.

Known for their sports cars, the LM002 was a massive departure for Lamborghini. It was built between 1986 and 1993 with 328 made. Interestingly, Pirelli was commissioned to make custom tires for the vehicle.
