But how is it relevant to the thread whether its your wife's car or your third cousin's sister in law's stepmother's car? The thread is about whether its a crossover or not. Since all you said was "it's my wife's car" I was kind of confused. Do you mean women drive crossovers, so its ok? No offense but, if you dont care what its called why are you on this thread?

Re: Are our jeeps crossovers?

It is a crossover by definition. It has a unibody structure instead of a body-on-frame. That is all that "crossover" means.

From Wiki:

A crossover (or CUV: crossover utility vehicle) is a vehicle built on a car platform and combining, in highly variable degrees, features of a sport utility vehicle (SUV) with features from a passenger vehicle, especially those of a station wagon or hatchback.
Using the unibody construction typical of passenger vehicles instead of the body-on-frame platform used in light trucks and the original SUVs, the crossover combines SUV design features such as tall interior packaging, high H-point seating, high center of gravity, high ground-clearance or all-wheel-drive capability with design features from an automobile such as a passenger vehicle's platform, independent rear suspension, car-like handling and superior fuel economy.

So which car platform is the Grand Cherokee based off of? Has to be the Viper

Re: Are our jeeps crossovers?

The JGC was and is the first true crossover, the rest are posers. But if you're going to call all these other vehicles crossovers, I'm calling my Jeep a truck. In reality, there's nothing quite like it. I'm not saying this to be pretentious or anything, but it is a pretty unique vehicle. If you really want to pigeonhole it, you should call it what it is, a Jeep.

So I guess my x5 falls in the same real cross over class as the jeep?

Disagree. Unibody means its a monocoque, crossovers are cars; which are usually monocoques, pumped up to look off roaderish, for town folk who want to sit higher than a car, but which still feels like a car to drive, and costs the same a car to run/maintain.

My Jeep Commander fails on all those, so its a truck ..... although I'm tempted to lump any 2wd Jeep into the crossover camp
