What kind of off-road vehicle you choose depends on how you plan to use it. They generally fall into the classes of utility, sport/performance and sportutility, so consider whether you want an off-road vehicle for work, recreational riding, hunting, or something in the middle. If it’s for work, look for utilitybased features such as horsepower, towing capability, cargo and payload capacity. For sport and recreation, size, maneuverability, fine-tuned engines and ground clearance are considerations. And if sharing the experience is the goal, seating for friends and family is a must.
