Because people who want comfy barges want them with awd and enough ride height to see traffic over your shitbox. Hence the current crossover heavy lineup.
They may not look as good as the sedans but they do just about everything the sedans do but better, luxury driver vehicles are the crossovers one strong point.

Because shitty GM management has fumbled with this brand for decades.
Hardly. They still only sell one SUV and only one crossover in 2018 despite almost every other brand having at least 3 or 4. Only GM could engineer a platform like Alpha and make impossible to develop crossovers off of.

I wish this would've gotten the ls2 engine instead of the shitty northstar.

Seriously, just how fucking stupid GM's administration was to allow this. Meanwhile Ford is coming up with a RWD platform that's going to underpin everything from the Explorer to the Fusion. Ford is going to murder GM in the coming years, and I would't be surprised if they need another bailout to survive.

I have to say I admire Ford's stealth approach with Lincoln. Slow incremental steps carefully planned with each new product starting with the current MKZ. This Aviator looks to be like the first truly world class luxury car they've made in a long time.

I would unironically buy a ferd and support murica if they continue this trajectory into something I'd like for my next car, if cars aren't b& by then.

The news about the new Explorer platform coupled with the Explorer ST rumors is really exciting. Ford might finally create the first actually good performance suv.

Crossovers exist for mothers, the largest demographic of new car buyers. They are great for when you have young children.

This has nothing to do with feeling superior.

Cadillac's only FWD cars are the XT5 for women and the XTS for 80 year olds and rental fleets, and most are sold with AWD anyways. ATS, CTS, CT6, and Escalade are all RWD chassis.

Also this

Ferd marrying itself to those unintentionally hilarious displacelet engines and horrid styling is sad. The explorer's a minivan, the mustang is now a BMW with downs-syndrome, the Superduty's grille is silly.
And those ridiculous little engines in big trucks is just fucking dumb.

"Ferd's progress!"
After the ranger shows up, the F-series sales will fall. After years of the dealers trying to convince people they don't want midsize trucks because
But for the price of a loaded up nice Midsize truck, you can get a stripped down fullsize truck with a joke of an engine in it
As if that's logical.

Fuck ford, they've been lost since 2014, and cucked to the EPA.

oh yeah let's go back to the fucking terrible 4.6L days when that awful engine was in everything. don't like that engine? get the equally shitty 5.4L. well if you hate the engine then you obviously haven't experienced the terrible chassis' that we produce, like the twisty and soft mustang, or the flubber that is the f-150, or the awful explorer.

ford produced SHIT cars for a long fucking time, and it's only very recent that they've produced cars that sell not on nostalgia, but on quality

You can open one door at a time. I wouldn't be surprised if it's based off a silverado chassis or some shit.

I've seen a few CT6's and lots of Escalades though most people just go for the Suburban because it's cheaper.

women ruin everything

why is television complete dog shit
stay at home moms are the only demo that watches daytime tv
grocery store is shit, literally walls and walls of added sugar bullshit lab concocted flavors of "yogurt"
grocery stores cater to women because they control the purchasing power there
Every car is a bubble wrapped, high riding, gas guzzling, poor handling, "suv" (aka sedan with shit leg room on stilts)
muh women choose the most new cars

Just think of something that sucks and it's usually because that's how women wanted it and they're willing to waste money to get it that way
