None of which are SUV's in the traditional sense (*Utility*). The only reason that I have an SUV in the driveway at all is to tow my boat. None of the station wagons you mentioned have the towing capacity I need to do that. I have a Ford Exploder with a 302 V8 for that job. Driving a real SUV to transport people is idiocy. On the other hand, those station wagons that you mentioned that call themselves SUVs are probably good people haulers, so I guess safety would be of importance. And no, my Jeep Wrangler is neither an SUV nor a station wagon. It is not good at people hauling (4 seater, not particularly safe) or trailering (2000lb tow limt). But it does go off-road damn well... -Fred W
