    now believe it'd have to be a gradual process, with lower-sleeker-longer CUVs
    Interesting theory. Much like the gradual evolution away from wagons, perhaps time can revert it back. Time will tell I guess

    Perhaps a whole new wagon classification could emerge......The "personal wagon" or "personal sedan plus" for Lincoln. Imagine the "wagon" version of the MKZ with sliding roof sliding all the way into the rear tallgate door creating a full center overhead opening. The personal look of a coupe only more practical.

    Since GM refuses to build a RWD, car based, two-door sport wagon on the alpha platform and call it Nomad, Ford should do it on the Mustang platform and call it Maverick, Bronco, or Falcon.

    I drive an SUV not by chose but its the only type of car that is made that meets my needs, if one of the big three built something else that meets my needs then I would consider it. I like the CTS wagon but its to small for my needs. and really lust after the CTS-V, if only it was a little bigger.

    from what I've read, the nextgen CTS WILL be a bit bigger
    but
    let me ask you, George:
    if a Territory-co-platformed vehicle becomes a new Lincoln Aviator,
    would you consider that?
    ...allowing for the possibility that it *might* follow that lower-sleeker-longer theme I mentioned above - while still being RWD-based-&-biased of course

    Is it time to consider producing or at least thinking about the Navicross concept from a few years back? Why just do a wagon when you can be different with a vehicle like the Navicross. I really like how the trunk opens.

    What about a Flex or MKT? Both seem to be more of a wagon than a SUV/CUV.
