2 Reasons:

It's easier for fat people to get in and out of SUVs. Most americans are overweight or obese.

The second reason is the fact that the Ford Explorer was marketed so much 15 years ago, which resulted in an SUV boom that has risen and fallen, but still makes it the go to choice for families in the US. Many people would rather have something they perceive to be large rather than a vehicle that is rewarding to drive.
