An acronym for sport utility vehicle. This breed of vehicles renowned for their ruggedness, simplicity, often generous accomodations, and most importantly their ability to traverse terrain that unsuitable (if not impossible) for cars.
Proper SUVs feature manual transmissions, torque rich engines, proper ground clearance, 4WD that when not in use reverts to RWD, and either a body-on-frame construction or truck based unibody.
As of late, auto manufactures have combined the capability of a good 4x4 vehicle with the refinement and ease of a car. Thus, an explosion in their popularity has resulted. Envy towards them stems in large part from individuals who live below the povery level, insecure about their own vehicles worthyness, jealous of their capabilities, and scapegoat nonsense lies on such vehicles.
A Jeep Grand Cherokee is an excellent SUV. A Toyota Rav-4 is not an SUV, but a tall AWD Toyota Corolla.
Sport Utility Vehicle. Neither a sport vehicle nor a utility vehicle. A whack, fakeass (and successful) attempt by the motor vehicle industry to lure in overpaid middle class workaholic moms who think that they need a 3 ton vehicle to carry their stupid kids to soccer practice.

Stop making fun of my SUV...my luxury is more important than your child's clean air!
1. A practical vehicle if you live in rural Michigan and actually have a need for 4 wheel drive.
2. An nauseatingly irresponsible vehicle if you live in Miami and drive it solely because noone going to tell you that you can't.
Regardless, there is no reason that auto manufacturers shouldn't be required to increase the fuel efficiency of these beasts.
If you drive an SUV and bitch about gas prices, you are a fucking asshole and might even be our current president.
Stupid Useless Vehicle
"Get your Stupid Useless Vehicle off the road!"
A type of pick-up truck with an attached camper shell and seats in the cargo bed.
Never intended for passenger use on the highway, is cheaper to manufacture due to loophole in federal laws regulating passenger saftey. Despite the manufacturing economy, on of the most expensive types of motor vehicles to own and operate-high accident and theft rate, low re-sale value, and poor performance and fuel economy.
Prone to roll over and kill all occupants from something as simple as a failed tire. The lack of structure mandated for real passenger vehicles allows the 'SUV' to cave in upon rollover, while even the cheapest passenger car is legally required to have a roll cage in the roof structure.
Marketed as a more cool replacement for the minivan or station wagon. Often seen in news reports as the scene of multiple fatalities resulting from a blown tire. There is a new generation of vehicles marketed as suv or hybrid vehicles, these are not as dangerous, being based on minivan or car chassis-engineered for use on paved surfaces.
