He said the purchase of the vehicles was made possible with the help of a $13,000 donation from Pen Mar Development Corp. “They'll be good for the next 10 or 15 years,” Ulrich said.

Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) have gained tremendously in popularity in recent years, because they allow their owners the flexibility to go anywhere, nearly any time. They are available either in all -- four -- or two wheel drive configurations, typically with a raised ground clearance, to enhance the off roading experience. All SUVs, no matter what segment size, are designed to carry a minimum of five passengers. The mid-sized and larger models may also have a third row of seats available.

The first Nissan Pathfinder was aptly named. Rolling into dealerships in 1986, Pathfinder was then the only Nissan sport-utility vehicle sold stateside. The popularity of the breed spawned plenty of new models, and soon Pathfinder was shoulder-to-shoulder in the showroom with the Nissan Murano, Xterra and Armada. Pathfinder and Murano are midsize bookends in the Nissan lineup. The latter is a stylish crossover with a clear, on-road bias. The former is also a midsize, but one that doesn't mind getting its tires dirty.

martinsburg@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Steve Allen is not picky. If it means he gets one or two new, heavy-duty sport utility vehicles for the Berkeley County Office of Emergency Services, Allen said he doesn't mind if the SUVs have advertisements on them. "I don't care if it says 'Eat at Joe's' on the side," said Allen, director of OES. Allen is asking that a North Carolina company supply his office with two SUVs, at a cost of $1. In return, the vehicles would come with local, regional or national ads on them.

Move over, SUVs - the vehicle which first became a phenomenon in the early eighties is making a comeback. Minivans were an instant hit when they were first introduced 20 years ago - they were practical and versatile, able to seat seven with a comfortable car-like ride, as well as able to carry large amounts of cargo. But the rise of SUVs affected sales - industry analysts estimate that 25 percent of minivan customers have been migrating to sport utility vehicles. Now analysts expect many families to come back to the minivan for its versatility.

"The people who drive the SUVs, you need to look over the dashboard. You aren't looking, especially when you are coming into Wal-Mart. You need to be looking around for people walking. The other day, I nearly got hit by two different people in SUVs when they were turning the corner. There are all different sizes and ages of people walking around that shopping center. It's very dangerous. You are going to hit someone one of these days. Plus you need to slow down, it's not a speedway.

American owned, British built and German powered: that was the recipe for the 2005 Land Rover Range Rover. Formerly owned by BMW and now a part of Ford's Premier Automotive Group, Range Rover recently came due for its 2006, mid-course freshening. Ford took the occasion to fine-tune the formula, replacing the BMW motor that powered the luxury SUV with a proper British engine. Ford didn't have to look far for a motor donor. Another iconic English brand is also part of the Premier Group stable: Jaguar.

It's enormously capable, and just plain enormous. That's the short story on the none-too-short H1, the original Hummer. The military-based, maxi-priced H1 is one of the ultimate, SUV exotics. And while it's fit for just about any off-road situation, it's a tight fit in city streets and many garages. Price and practicality dictated the development of a smaller version. It was dubbed the H2, and it's only by comparison to the original Hummer that it could be considered "small.

Marketers lie. A stunning revelation, I know, but I have proof. We've all heard the expression, "One size fits all," haven't we? Well, it doesn't. An XXL size shirt that suits a big guy fits a small person like a tent. Shirts or sport-utility vehicles, it's all the same. The first Hummer to hit the market - the H1 - was an "XXL" if ever there was one. Here was a vehicle that could go almost anywhere, but would fit almost nowhere. The H2 followed a few years later, a scaled-down version with most of the H1's gutsy, trail-chomping attitude.
