A Carmaking 101 lesson for you: Full-size SUVs with hefty price tags selling in large numbers equals big profits. How big? I don’t have the specifics, but in general terms, Chevrolet sells around 100,000 Tahoes every year, and Ford moved nearly 90,000 Expeditions in 2019. These full-size family haulers, which are mostly endemic to North America, are based on existing pickup trucks, so the development costs are less than they would be for a standalone product.
