AMC/Chrysler Eagle (1980-1988)
The Eagle is probably the first crossover vehicle and set the template for the Subaru Outback. It was a four-wheel drive vehicle that you get as a station wagon, sedan, hatchback and coupe that you could take off road before that become a marketing tool.
At the time your off road, four-wheel drive options were the Jeep Grand Wagoneer or a Jeep CJ7 and those always seemed a bit brutish but an Eagle cried of civility for the suburbs. The Eagle was mass-produced vehicle in the U.S. with full time all-wheel drive and was clearly ahead of the curve for the crossover/SUV market that would explode decades later.
