It has four doors. I've always thought they were more a CUV but that's nit-picking. Ford says it's an SUV.

and just to cut off some possible repeated argument - it's been explained elsewhere on here convincingly that it's really the EPA making that decision to call it an SUV based on their size rules for vehicles. So "Ford is stoopid how dare tehy!" wouldn't be accurate in this specific case of this specific nit.

Thanks! I had no idea there were “official” definitions of CUVs and SUVs? I always had in my mind that CUV=car/station wagon-like vehicle with body cladding/AWD type system that can go on some graded gravel/dirt roads. SUV=purpose built vehicle with better chassis/suspension capable of going on more rugged terrain (varying by vehicle).

absolutely. I don't know how "well known" this is to be honest and we have way too many posts on here now to just say "find it" but for example with some search mojo I was able to find The “Not a Mustang” Crowd on Instagram | Page 4 | Ford Mustang Mach-E Forum - MachEforum.com that links to Why the EPA’s Vehicle-Size Classes Make No Sense (automobilemag.com) which spells it out pretty clearly, I think.

As long as they don't call it a mini van, who cares what they call it. You either like it or not. And I care even less about what the "Mustang Crowd" thinks.

Or worse -- station wagon!

not a 4x8 sheet, though. The largest opening diagonally across the hatch is under 46". studs will fit fine, just be sure not to shove them all the way up into the tablet, though.
