Wagon Life Has Returned to the US!!

Ive come to a decision, I am 100% in support of these lifted, bodycladded wagons that we keep seeing pop up for the US. They are actually pretty darn attractive, especially compared to all the car designs we have been seeing. I talked earlier about how car design is going from Trackpack to Actionpack, and I think that these cars prove it’s what we want. Whether you decide to call them Action Wagons, X-Wagons, Adventure Timers, Crossroaders, I honestly don’t care. Just keep them coming!!

Now, imagine the following coming to the US with a bit of a lift and some wheel arch treatments:

BMW 5 Series Touring

Ford Fusion Wagon

Kia Optima Sportwagon (could replace the 2-row version of the Sorento)

Mazda 6 Wagon “Waguna Seca” (close the gap between CX-5 and CX-9)

Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo (a X-Turismo won’t happen but can you imagine?!)

Im just saying that if we need to lift these cars up in order to sell them in the US then I’m cool with that. It opens the door for their lower to the ground siblings later. But when you open up your perspective you’ll see that wagons aren’t dead but actually beginning to thrive again. What’s really dying are hardtop convertibles, three door hatchbacks, FWD-only coupes and convertibles, and plain ol’ traditional, upright C-pillar sedans because they are all becoming 4-door coupes and liftbacks.
