  • got the history wrong.....

    yes, the Wagoneer came out in the 60's, but is not the original suv, not by a long shot. that extended wheelbase Cadillac in the episode is the true original sport utility since it is essentially a rebadged Chevy Suburban, a vehicle which has been in continuous production since 1935. not only is the Burb the grand daddy of the suv, decades before the term was coined, it is the longest running vehicle model in history, predating even the original Beetle. yes the SRT Cherokee is pretty impressive in the performance department, but i'd still take the fancy Chevy if given a choice. and then put a LS7/LS9 hybrid in it and smoke those two over sized cars they dare call an suv!
