I am not sure "Trendy" is the reason many go for a 5er.
I believe the #1 reason is stability while towing.
The #2 reason would be great amounts of storage.
The stability is why you see 250/2500's towing 40' 18,000# 5ers, the 5er doesn't tell them they are overloaded. They throw on a set of air bags, and run on overloaded tires until they have a blow out.
