The term station wagon traces the lineage of its name to the vehicles used to transport luggage from the train depot to the manor house. Often made with wooden sides, these vehicles also came to be called “woodies.” Later models used faux wood side panels to pay homage to this classic moniker. These vehicles became an iconic symbol of the post-war baby boom.
Today, a station wagon is a car model whose roof doesn’t drop down after the rear seat to form a trunk. The roof extends the full length of the vehicle. This design produces an interior space normally used for storage or third row seating. A station wagon generally has four doors and a bottom-hinged rear gate similar to that of a pickup truck.
