fun fact, SUV's like this started back with the Chevrolet Suburban
after wwii, soldiers coming home liked what they had on the field, the Suburban and demanded it for civilian use leading to what we have today. BMW has GM to thank

That's interesting, had no idea that was the case. I dont think anyone anticipated SUV's and crossovers to dominate the auto industry in the way that they have been though. Especially with the new regulations over emissions and fuel economy.
It was really a matter of automakers taking the risk and testing what consumers want. Hatchbacks would have been it, but coming from a past flush with big American SUV's, some of that image had to live on, so CUV's and Crossovers it is.
