I don't think there is any set definition of a crossover SUV these days...there are so many variations that an argument can be made either way. For example, the Grand Cherokee isn't body-on-frame....it isn't even built on a boxed ladder frame....it no longer has a live rear axle. Like it or not, Jeep is moving the Grand Cherokee closer and closer to a crossover SUV with every redesign.
If you want to buy a new SUV that doesn't approach crossover status, your choices are extremely limited. There are a few SUVs today that are body-on-frame, with fully boxed ladder frames and solid rear axles, but I don't know how much longer we'll see those vehicles available in the future....
