Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) are Dead

Written By David D'Angelo on Friday, June 6, 2008 | 6/06/2008

Sport Utility Vehicles or SUVs had been finally declared by General Motors, Ford and other manufacturers as officially out of the line and are now dead per production. SUVs had been considered by many as a cool vehicle but it is also one of the most environmental polluting vehicles.

The SUVs zip so much gas that maintaining it can costs more than US$100,000 in maintenance.

USA Today writes, "For a generation, pickups and SUVs have symbolized a rugged, oversized, no-holds-barred American lifestyle. Tuesday, automakers made it clear that consumers are hitting the brakes on their love affair with the hardiest, roomiest -- and thirstiest -- vehicles." According to USA Today, automakers expect the pickup truck to "trend back to its roots as the humble working partner of cowboys and contractors."
