A "crossover" ?
No, I don't think that this full frame vehicle can be classified as a crossover, Gasgoo.
As Micodelija so superbly illustrates in pictures, this is a rugged vehicle capable of competing with the best of off-road vehicles.
Crossovers are fragile unibody vehicles which rarely venture beyond the paved road.
Maybe the CUV stands for Cannonball Utility Vehicle.
