Forty years ago the cars to own were low, sleek and sexy. But automotive fashion has turned completely around, and the coolest things on the road today are rugged, oversized SUVs. Hipper than station wagons and tougher than minivans, they are prized more for the aura they project than for their capabilities. In fact, most owners never take them off road.
As much as consumers love SUVs, automakers are even more enamored of them. Sales have soared in recent years, propping up an otherwise sluggish auto market. But critics contend that SUVs bring danger with them to the road, that they really only provide the illusion of safety.
INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS™ interviews industry insiders, consumer advocates, and automotive journalists in this sweeping inquiry into THE SUV CRAZE. What is revealed may well surprise you.
