 Sport utility vehicle Summary
Sport utility vehicles were originally descended from commercial and military vehicles such as the Jeep and Land Rover.
SUVs are often used in places such as the Australian Outback, Africa, the Middle East, Alaska, Northern Canada 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.

 Sport utility vehicle - Wikinfo
The sport utility vehicle or off-roader (commonly known in the United States by the abbreviation SUV) is a type of vehicle that combines the load-hauling and passenger-carrying capacity of a large station wagon or minivan with features designed for off-road driving.
The explosive growth in SUV ownership has attracted a large number of critics, mainly against the effect the vehicles have on other drivers and the environment, but also on the basis that the perceived benefits to the vehicle owner are illusory or exaggerated.
The most recent generation of SUVs have been designed to reduce the rollover risk, and the smaller SUV models are essentially car drivetrains with taller wheels and bodywork, and are not much worse than their car counterparts in terms of fuel economy.

 Sport Utility Vehicle
The manufacturers of Sport Utility Vehicles (SUV) are under increasing criticism for not improving the safety of these popular vehicles.
Unfortunately, most SUVs are in use on highways – often traveling at high speeds.
Because many SUVs have high centers of gravity (due to high suspensions) combined with top heavy designs and narrow wheelbases, they are particularly susceptible to rollovers when hit by another vehicle at high speed.

At a time when most SUVs are becoming watered down, carlike "crossover" vehicles, the Jeep Liberty is staying true to its roots as a real off-road machine.
Jeep probably could have sold more SUVs if the Liberty were designed for shopping malls and freeways -- places where comfort takes precedence over ruggedness and off-road dependability -- rather than building an SUV to tackle the Rubicon Trail.
Its ride is stiffer and bouncier than in a crossover SUV that's designed strictly for city driving, but it's not unreasonably rough riding.

The new 1999 ML430 is designed to establish Mercedes-Benz in the premium SUV marketplace in the same manner as the ML320 has done in its segment.
If it is a bit smaller than some luxury SUVs, the ML430 is no less well- appointed and far easier to maneuver in the tight spaces of the urban jungle.
A short jaunt through muddy Vermont fire roads during the press introduction showed the ML430 to be quite capable of the sort of light- to medium-duty off road use that some will see in real life, and to be eminently comfortable while in such use.

A sport utility vehicle, or SUV, is a type of passenger vehicle which combines the load-hauling and versatility of a pickup truck with the passenger-carrying space of a van or station wagon.
Sport utility vehicles were originally descended from commercial and military vehicles such as the Jeep and Land Rover.
Because of SUVs' greater height and weight, and often usage of body-on-frame constructions, it is documented that many SUVs hurt public road safety by increasing risk for people both inside and outside the SUV (in other vehicles or on foot).
