The biggest cars ever made

Cheapism Logo By Jason Notte of Cheapism | Slide 1 of 51: The biggest car or SUV isn't necessarily the best, but that doesn't make it any less impressive when it pulls up curbside. The U.S. had some monstrous cars patrolling its roadways during the 1960s and 1970s, but they faded away as multiple fuel crises made them seem inefficient and pointless. The full-sized SUV seemed headed in the same direction when gas prices reached more than $4 a gallon nearly a decade ago, but the emergence of crossovers and brief drop in gas prices revived it, trimming smaller (and sometimes tiny) cars from U.S. lineups. We are once again in the era of the land yacht — but history shows these vehicles can always get bigger.  Related: 12 Gas Guzzlers We’re Afraid to Admit We Still Want
