Well, it is a big deal job for car designers. They not only need to provide engineers with modern, elegant, and production-ready shapes, but they also need to make them compatible, practical, and economical to produce. Also, the cars that the designer’s design needs to be aesthetically pleasing, original, exclusive, and decipherable.

There is no doubt that we also find unappealing cars while traveling on the road. The American car industry, as one of the biggest in the world, has produced many gorgeous cars. They always try to come up with impressive cars. They produce cars that a very eye-pleasing and elegant, they have made away into many museums of modern art. Everyone out there can recognize the plunging lines of the Corvette, the muscle stance of the Mustang, and the wonderful, mid-century lines of the ’59 Cadillac.

Nevertheless, not all American cars are show – stoppers in the market or the work of art. There also cars that are downright unpleasant and deterring. Keep pursuing to know more about the hideous cars from the United States of America.


Though most of the drivers considered the PT Cruiser as a substandard model in terms of power and technology, it was an enormously lucrative model even though it was unappealing. Chrysler survived to sell 1.35 million PT Cruisers in just ten years. It was most likely the last biggest sales for Chrysler. The PT Cruiser’s appeal was its faux-retro design, economical price, and aspiring – cool image of a custom car from the past.


The Pacer is a car that drivers combinedly love and hate, but its legendary outlook is recognizable. The Pacer was AMC’s effort to produce a compact car. Though, it turned out to be less efficient than its competitors in the market as it came up with numerous flaws. Just after Gremlin, AMC envisioned the Pacer to be bigger and sophisticated, but its design was deterring. The front look was beautiful, and the silhouette was egg-shaped, which was bizarre and unnoticed at the time.

When Pontiac was introduced in the market as the Aztec in 2000, it was a given a good idea, at least on paper. The mid-size crossover model with its sharp new styling, decent engine line up, and interior space was a modern concept at the time. Pontiac was eager to showcase it to the world since the overall sales of the brand were poor. They thought their new model would boost the recognition of the brand bring their new customers to the franchises. 


When the beast Chrysler PT Cruiser hit the market and became an extremely sought – after model, Chevrolet came to a conclusion to join the retro – design game, introducing the HHR. The abbreviation of HHR stood for “Heritage High Roof” because the HHR resembled the classic panel vans and Suburbans of the ’50s. But unfortunately, there wasn’t so much the HHR could offer besides faux-retro looks. The drivetrain and driving dynamics were modest, and the interior materials were the inferior quality.
