AGREE!!!!! But SO many do it...

The high majority of the population see a vehicle essentially as an appliance. A necessary evil, something that gets them from point A to B....

Sad really...

For years I wondered how car salesman ever sold a single vehicle. SO many have NO CLUE about what they are selling and are VERY quick to try to tell you what you like / want in a car.....

"Oh, you want it in Silver, well I don't have a silver one, but I can get it in Metallic Mint Green. (Sorry, I don't Like the green, I want Silver). Oh but to me the Green looks a lot better and everyone else has silver... I can cut you a great deal on this one...."

It's one thing to explain the options or advantages, its another to try to tell me that what I want doesn't matter... BUT, this works all day every day because most simply don't care...

***Sorry, Rant Over*****

Not quite. The Acadia is a cousin to the Traverse, which are both about the same size as the Grand Cherokee. The Terrain is more compact, and is a cousin to the Equinox. There are deep discounts on new GM products, probably why we see so many of them. That's also why GM resale values are comparably low.

The Tahoe listed is a full-size vehicle, not sure why it's on this mid-size list.

Beat me to it; GM / Chevrolet have nothing that is the same size as the GC, which has (in my opinion) perfect dimensions. The Acadia and Traverse are definitely bigger and are considered family haulers, they look a little oversized / bloated.

Just don't like seeing the car I'm driving with rooflights in such high volumes.
Well, consider that a ski rack artfully painted to sort of look like rooflights, without actually making it look too much like roof lights could deter traffic miscreants around you.

Probably also get a bit of notice from the folks with the real roof lights unfortunately.

According to Autoweek Car News, Chrysler sales in Nov set records. Ford sales were "down" and I would not expect Ford management to take that too lightly.

I rode in a friend's Equinox (I think it was a 2013) a few months ago, was not bad, but not really impressed. He bought the high end trim of it, but admitted the reason why he got one was that it was cheap. He wasn't even sure of the engine he had, he just liked the price.

I looked at it and informed he had the V6, haha. I just have no idea how someone can buy a car and not know at least the very basics, like number of cylinders.
You may not have acquaintances who are sufficiently un-automotive oriented as to not even know if the engine is up front, middle, or rear. Unfortunately, lots of 'em out there, which is why "crossovers" have blighted the universe.

Re: US sales mid-size SUVs

As we speak the Cherokee (According to Chrysler) is the top selling Jeep. It seems to be attracting a wider breath of drivers then the JG and of course the Wrangler. Do you you think we can expect similar design modifications (curved grill) to the next JG. I hope not.

Well the price point might have something to do with it too ; but even the much more pricey GC is still selling as fast as they can build them. If they wreck the design of future GC's to be more like the C then my days with jeep are over, simple as that.

That's why the Tahoe is in parentheses (and Wrangler and Cherokee too). its just there for reference. However, good point about the size of the Equinox.
Will adjust that next time.

Re: US sales mid-size SUVs

I like that those other vehicles were included for reference in that list...it helps keep things in perspective relative to other choices that might be different size-wise, but still popular in the SUV space.
