Exactly. The car makers need to keep the target moving. I suspect the next trend will indeed be the venerable station wagon...again.

The Queen Family Truckster will live again.

I don't think the minivan ever caught on as being a fashionable car. Don't see any young single people showing up to buy them.

I don't either, but I think that some people do think their Explorer is some sort of status symbol. Maybe this depends on where you live. I live in a very blue collar town and are much more likely to see Explorers over the higher end ones. A nice new Explorer is going to be a lot nicer than what a lot of other people in my neighborhood drive, so to some extent maybe it is something of a status symbol.

Every suburban soccer mom in the universe has a minivan. Minivans far outnumber SUVs. A minivan is only useful as a people mover - at least an SUV adds extra utility.

As for status, around here an Explorer is your average-joe vehicle. A Lexus LX is a status SUV. An Escalade is a status SUV.

Almost every one. Not this one, though.

I drive a MINI Cooper.

That way, I never have to take everyone else's kids to the soccer games.

I'm afraid to drive my wife's car. Afraid of tickets, that is.
