Some of you might be wondering, what is a UTV (Utility Terrain Vehicle)? A UTV is a cross between an ATV and a pick-up truck. UTVs started out as a work based vehicle, but quickly found a place in many people’s stables as a sport and utility vehicle.
UTV owners seek capability and durability from their vehicle. UTVs are looked upon as being the main tool for these features. According to a recent report, 68% of UTV users said that improving their vehicles durability is the most important. It is no secret that capability and durability is one of the most important features of a UTV.
The top three usages of UTVS are: general chores, general enjoyment and property maintenance. Although these are the top three usage choices for UTV’s, they can be used for just about anything these days. Whether it’s ripping up the sand dunes, hauling wood from the woods to the camp site or merely for showing off to your friends, everyone uses their UTV in different ways.
