Sport Utility Vehicles are like excuses; everybody's got one!
Each year, thousands of Californians drive their gas guzzlers all over the state, on the freeways, to the mall, all over town. For most, they're "making a statement" and have no intentions of ever off-roading. Allowing their tires to touch the dirt roads was never in their thoughts, but at least they look like they could if they wanted to. For others, those with an adventurous side, the new sport wagons, AWD (all wheel drive) and 4WD (4 wheel drive) vehicles open up a whole new world of exploration and weekend excitement.
Hard core or basic off-road enthusiast will enjoy special organizations and groups dedicated to responsible off-roading -
Find locals, new roads & trails (and remember 4x4 is not always a necessity for exploration & adventure).
