The most interesting aspect of the SUV/crossover market is how popular car-like trucks have become.
The SUV/crossover presents an effective illusion to the marketplace of a more practical, roomy and yet still sporty vehicle than a boring old sedan.
In reality, the SUV/crossover enjoys none of these supposed advantages.
The result is ever more car like SUV/crossover vehicles built on sedan platforms using sedan suspension and drivetrains with sedan interiors.
The only difference between these vehicles and their sedan equivalents is weight, they are all bigger and heavier to perform an almost identical function.
They cost more for less, use more fuel and, biggest joke if all, generally carry less stuff thsn the equivalent sedan.
It's a mystery but then most people really don't like to drive.
