 Sport utility vehicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
SUVs are often used in places such as the Australian Outback, Africa, the Middle East, Alaska, Northern Canada, South America and most of Asia, which have limited paved roads and require the vehicle to have all-terrain handling, increased range, and storage capacity.
SUV clubs often promote this ideal and a commercial manifestation of this can be seen in the number of tourism operators dependent on SUVs for their activities, Australia being a strong example.
This is in part because the collision of an SUV with a pedestrian tends to impact the chest, while the collision of a car with a pedestrian tends to impact the knees.

 Crossover SUV
A crossover SUV (also called CUV for Crossover Utility Vehicule) or XUV (not to be confused with GMC's Envoy XUV) is an automobile with a sport utility vehicle appearance but is built upon a more economical and fuel-efficient car-based platform.
Research showed that a vast majority of SUV owners never took their vehicles off-pavement, much less used them for fording streams or climbing boulders, which was their original raison d'etre.
Given the inherent fuzziness of the "Crossover" designation, and automakers' desire to introduce vehicles into this currently "hot" segment, any number of improbable vehicles that are far removed from the original SUV concept are grouped in this category.

 Indiacar News-Ford unveils Edge, new 'crossover' SUV   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Crossover SUVs are becoming increasingly popular and may outpace traditional SUVs in sales next year.
While traditional SUVs are based on the mechanical underpinnings of trucks, featuring a body and frame built as separate structures, crossovers are built like cars in which the body and frame are the same thing.
The Toyota Highlander crossover SUV, for example, is based on the Toyota Camry sedan.

Nissan North America's first entry into the crossover SUV market, the all-new 2003 Nissan Murano, quickly made a name for itself upon its launch in December by being named a finalist for "North American Truck of the Year." Rolling into 2003, the Murano is being marketed as a fresh new concept: the urban SUV.
Endeavor is a new-generation SUV model that marries SUV go-anywhere utility with the dynamic performance and ride of a regular passenger model.
The first generation of SUVs featured vehicles that were engineered and built to be nearly indestructible, but many consumers drawn to the SUV segment have grown tired of their truck-like ride and handling.

Mazdas CX-7 and Acuras new-for-2007 RDX are the only crossovers to come solely with turbocharged four-cylinder power plants.

And, some SUVs and crossovers with V-6s have higher government fuel economy ratings than the two-wheel-drive CX-7s 19 miles per gallon in city driving and 24 mpg on the highway.

 2007 GMC Acadia - Crossover SUV - Mini Truckin' Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
The advantages of crossovers, being handling, economy, and cost, to name a few, contribute to the recent surge in crossovers.
Since the gas-guzzling SUV is not exactly convenient, efficient, or easy to handle around town, and the family minivan seems outdated and tarnishing to an image that frankly does matter in the American car culture, the Acadia certainly stands as a viable option.
GMC's crossover SUV Acadia prides itself in having an "athletic design," which I find to be a clever adjective because it looks sporty, sleek, aerodynamic, almost aggressive, and is aesthetically comfortable to look at.
