You do realize that an FWD/AWD platform has some advantages over RWD/AWD, right?
SUV/CUV means nothing, it is just marketing garbage. What means something is body-on-frame or unibody. 'A'WD with transverse mounted front engine is not AWD, it is garbage. There is nothing to understand other that expensive FWD cars s*ck monkey balls.

As always, you're wrong.

A CUV (crossover utility vehicle) is a car-based vehicle usually FWD/AWD and is desired for its car like features and mild inclement weather safety.

An SUV (sport utility vehicle) may or may not be car-based, but sometimes truck-based, does tend to have real 4WD.

The advantage to FWD based CUVs is far superior packaging with the engine in front of the front wheel centerline. This also gives it benign handling that serves consumers well.

Expensive FWD cars don't necessarily suck monkey balls. The Mini Cooper S and VW GTI are expensive FWD rides that handle stupendously well.

Audi's entire lineup of sedans in FWD based with AWD as an option, but make no mistake a LOT of FWD Audis are sold and no one is saying they suck balls.

I can name a few Rwd cars that I would gladly ignore for a Camry. Specifically the Crown Victoria, Dodge Challenger, Caprice, and any new BMW.

Interesting point, especially given the Crown Victoria hasn't been produced in ages and even the factory that once built the Caprice has been dismantled. What other RWD car would you gladly ignore? The Model T?

Well I did name a few others that Are in production up there.

And if you have a spare Model T, I will make room for it, thanks.

Actually, a retired police Caprice is kind of like having a Chevy SS in a more nondescript (sleeper) package...could be rather delightful.

I'd love to drop a GT350 engine in a Crown Victoria. It will pretty much bolt in. Dialing the suspension in is already partially done if you get a police Vickie.
