The station wagon still exists on U.S. roadways, but its golden era has long passed. The wayback seating, long frames, and faux-wood paneling are largely lost to history, replaced by minivans and SUVs. “There are not a lot of station wagons — but what we're seeing a little bit more of is manufacturers taking a station wagon, lifting it a little bit, and labeling it an SUV alternative,” says Will Kaufman, editor at automotive analysis and pricing site Edmunds. “They're still basically station wagons, but they have an extra inch and a half of ride height to make them a little friendlier if you're driving down a dirt road.” If you're nostalgic, however, here are reminders of when this big family car ruled the roads.
