I think at this point it's about what people are buying. A lot of Yeti employees seem to be riding the SB66 (judging by their videos) and Yeti has said the only reason they stopped making it is that nobody is buying it.
Look at the 2014 Bible of Bike Test videos from Bike mag when they reviewed the SB75 & SB95. They said they liked both bikes but couldn't help but compare them unfavourably to the SB66c. Not as playful was their biggest complaint.
