        Everything SUV is the old wagon

        An Edge is just a Fusion wagon
        The original Explorer was a Ranger wagon.
        They called the Freestyle/Taurus X a "crossover" but it was absolutely a Five Hundred / Taurus wagon.

        Wagons are everywhere. It's the sedan that's dead.

        Yeah they're called minivans. All the seats today fold into the floor and have more cargo area than an escalade. Fold all the seats up and you have 3 rows of seating. They all come with powered doors you can open and close all of them with the keyfob to get the kids in, let the dogs out, or whatever the frick you want.

        Go ahead and tell me why you love wagons but detest minivans. Yeah, I hate when theres a better product being sold but its not just like the wagons from the 80s (bad).

            Yeah, even the 'small' version of vans has more passenger and cargo area over a wagon. You're getting a little deeper in the water, don't drown yourself for not realizing you just like the idea of a wagon and its not better than anything on the road.

            You're coming at this from a different perspective. I'm not interested in a wagon to be purely practical or yes, I would be looking at a minivan. Manhandling a giant barge of a wagon, doing dumb shit with it it was never meant to is fricking fun and that matters to me more because I don't need the capability of a minivan often, the one time every couple years I might I can just rent a uhaul van instead of owning and living with a vehicle I don't want or need. A RWD one is just better at the things I want to do with it.

        My 2011 Outback with the 6 cylinder has been reliable and repairs haven't been particularly expensive. The 2.5 4 cylinder had head gasket issues that Subaru really should have fixed by the second or third year between 2000 and 2012 and they earned themselves a reputation for poor reliability. Subaru has no one to blame for that reputation but themselves; but honestly if you avoid that engine in that year range they're pretty solid.

        I don't really think they're ugly just boring. The NA 4 cylinders are slow; but get you decent mileage with AWD at an affordable price. The 6 cylinders and the 4 cylinder turbos have some pep.

    May allah forgive me for proposing an idea of a FWD, V6, unibody wagon.
    Picture a continuation of the late 70's, body on frame wagon's that lasted until about 90-94. But they decided to keep the wheelbase and boxy design to maximize cargo volume, but modernized to the 80's/90's design languageand switched to a unibody, FWD layout with a 3800 (perhaps even with the GXP blower) to get rid of the transmission tunnel, flatten the floors and give it even more internal volume. Probably would be nearing GMT800 suburban internal volume in a passenger car.

    I hope so. Wagons make good solo road trip vehicles since you can sleep in them and still be in the cabin if anything happens (unlike in the bed of a truck with a camper shell). Take showers at a Flying J or Planet Fitness and only get a motel room every once in a while and you can save a shitload of money.

    As a side bonus they're (generally) easier on gas when compared to vans or SUVs. Downsides are that they're a b***h to park and don't have the increased driver height that you can get in a lot of vans and SUVs.

    If anything they could replace some of the legions of soccer mom crossovers.

    There's no way you could possibly market a wagon in a post-unibody SUV world
    The only selling points they ever used to have were that SUVs of the time had bad ride quality and poor fuel economy because they were truck based. But now SUVs are all car based and ride just as good as a car and get 95% of the MPGs of an equivalent sedan, while still having all of the same advantages of an SUV. Imagine telling someone that they could trade their SUV in for something that was lower to the ground and had a shorter cargo space but also was harder to get in and out of. I mean truly genius level marketing tactic.

        I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here. Hatchbacks are impractical? SUVS have worse cargo space? The entire point of these vehicles, the reason they're made the way they're made, is because they have BETTER cargo space and are therefore more practical. It's the reason the design was ever even made.

          >Hatchbacks are impractical?
          Kind of. If you compare them with sedans, it's easier to put stuff in the trunk of a hatchback, but that's it. The rear window of the sedan is usually cleaner because aero (there's no pocket of low pressure air dragged behind it), you don't need to cool/heat the luggage space, you don't get smells and noises from there in a sedan too. All these problems are shared by the hatchback and the wagon, but the wagon has the benefit of being able to fit taller stuff in the trunk because the rear window is vertical and won't interfere.

          The hatchback is a moronic compromise for homosexuals, and you can't convince me otherwise. I mean, the shooting brake exists, and it's better at anything practical than the comparable 3dr hatchback because it has more cargo volume while having the same footprint.

            You don't sit closer to the roof, moron. The roof, shockingly, gets taller as the car gets taller. They don't raise the seating position and then just put a hump in the roof for the driver's head like its a GT40

            Glad you understand it. Now back to my point: I used the shooting brake as an example of a small two-door car to point that the rear "wagon-like" almost vertical window is more practical than sloped "hatchback-like" because almost vertical window is the defining feature for the wagon and the shooting brake, but most wagons have four doors and shooting brakes usually have two, while hatchbacks come in both varieties.
