As our final entry in the Nineties, we talk bad SUV and truck design from Asia.

QOTD: Trucking Awful Nineties Design From Europe?

Last week, in our Wednesday QOTD post, we switched over to the darker side of truck and SUV design from the Nineties. It seemed many of our dear readers were less than fans of the so-called “jellybean” Ford F-150. This week, attention shifts to east — to Europe. Which trucks and SUVs from that most stylish of continents have aged the worst in terms of styling?

QOTD: Trucking Great Nineties Design in Asia?

In today’s QOTD we conclude the discussion started a couple of weeks ago when we asked for the best-aged truck and SUV designs from the Nineties. First up were American brands, followed by Europe last week. Over 10,000 of you (probably) agreed with sample submission Discovery II last week; let’s see how well this week’s Asian selection sits.

QOTD: Trucking Great Nineties Design in Europe?

In the Wednesday QOTD last week, we began our considerations of the truck and SUV models from the nineties which aged most gracefully. American offerings were the first up for discussion, and the majority of you chimed in to agree with my assessment of the GMT 400 trucks as some of the best-aged designs. There were so many great GMT variations from which to choose!

Today we move on to Europe, which may be more challenging.

QOTD: Trucking Great Nineties Design in America?

Over the past few weeks we’ve discussed 1990s car design on Wednesday’s Question of the Day entry. We spent three weeks talking about the good and three weeks talking about the bad. But those discussions were limited to body styles other than trucks — and by extension, SUVs. Great news! The [s]Dacia Sandero[/s] restriction is now off the table.

QOTD: Terribly Aged Europeans of the Nineties?

Lately, we’ve featured a succession of posts relating to automotive style in the Nineties here at Question of the Day. We started out discussing the best of the best from America, Europe, and Asia. Then, last week, we moved on to the Worst Ever awards from America. Many of you said I was nuts for disliking the refreshed Lincoln Mark VIII. While I still don’t like the VIII post-’96, I’ll agree the Buick Skylark for 1992 would’ve been a better selection. There, happy?

Let’s see if I can get my European selection to be a bit more agreeable to all you connoisseurs of things Nineties.

  • FreedMike ...but is the monthly turn signal subscription also going up?
  • FreedMike GM looked at all those Cayennes, Macans and Panameras Porsche is moving, and climbed aboard the same train. Probably inevitable.
  • SCE to AUX With inflation at 7.7%, that looks like a price drop.
  • SCE to AUX "However, it allegedly won’t require you to retake the wheel unless the car decides it cannot navigate the road ahead"So, that means it's still a Level 2 or maybe Level 3 system. In other words, it works until it doesn't. Guess what SAE Level 3 says: "When the feature requests, you must drive."This means no liability for Honda, just the same as for Tesla. Pretty useless to entrust your life to.
