Not a good omen

Wheels (Australia) - - Comparison / Mid-Size Suvs -

Home­grown Ford Ter­ri­tory aside, only Jeep, out of the main­stream mar­ques, has man­aged to make the large, five-seater SUV seg­ment work Down Un­der. It’s done so since 1996, with four gen­er­a­tions of the Grand Chero­kee, prob­a­bly only be­cause of the model’s off-road ca­pa­bil­i­ties. In con­trast, the Nis­san Max­ima-based Mu­rano crossover strug­gled to gain trac­tion over two se­ries for a decade from 2005, while others, like Toy­ota (with the Camry-based Venza from 2008-17), and soon Chevro­let with the 2020 Blazer, haven’t even both­ered.
