+1 for both the preceding posts. People are not buying a 3-row SUV for its driving dynamics. Reviews for the current Explorer generally say that the move to RWD hasn't helped handling, and it's not like anything of the Genesis cars are selling particularly well (I imagine).

wouldn't a FWD based AWD SUV have better interior packaging than a RWD based AWD. These comments make sense.

Plus the argument of most people buying 4wd simply isn't true. 4wd is less popular the further south you get from Mason-Dixon. It's almost impossible to find a 4wd car on the lot in most car dealerships in Florida, for example.

Exactly. People buying this type of car do it for the need of space, not for driving pleasure. To that respect, FWD is better.
