Cars can create or symbolize profound change—in lifestyle, financial status, and even forms of government. Forbes looks at 10 that changed the world:
- Toyota Prius. The flagship model for all hybrids, the Prius opened people's minds to the ugly environmental impact of driving. It remains the world's best-selling hybrid vehicle.
- Dodge Caravan. The success of the family-friendly Caravan, and competitors' imitations, kicked the minivan craze into gear.
- Jeep Cherokee. Greenies may lament the Cherokee's success, but its status as a practical family car triggered the '90s SUV boom.
- Ford Mustang. The original muscle car, the Mustang was wildly popular when it debuted in 1964—and has remained so, enjoying uninterrupted production ever since.
- Ford Model T. The first car that working-class Americans could afford, the Model T gave birth to American car culture.
