because whenever you drive a Mach-E you think, "truck yeah, this is AWESOME! "My insurance company says that my Mustang Mach-E is a "Ford Truck". And when I checked my paperwork from the dealer, it also says "Ford Truck".
Why is the Mach-E called a "Truck"?
Are all CUV's and SUV's considered to be trucks?
Is the Tesla Model-Y (a direct Mach-E competitor) classified as a "truck" by insurance companies?
SUVs started decades before CAFE (like the 1935 Chevy). Then somewhat popular in the 60s (Wagoneer and Bronco). But the modern SUV didn’t become popular until much later (84 Cherokee and 90 Explorer).That used to be the case but in 2006 it was change to require SUV to be over 10000lb to get the exemption and pickup truck to be over 8500lb.
You are right that a big reason for the SUV was CAFE
