SUV stands for Sport Utility Vehicles. But this does not necessarily mean a classic off-road vehicle. An SUV is technically similar to a regular passenger car, but is often equipped with four-wheel drive and is therefore suitable for off-road use. The body structure of an SUV and an off-road vehicle is similar, but there are also technical differences:
The transmission of an off-road vehicle has separate off-road gears with particularly short ratios or a gearbox that is connected downstream of all gears.
Traditional off-road vehicles have a ladder or box frame, SUVs have a self-supporting body and individually suspended wheels.
Off-road vehicles have differential locks that improve off-road capability. SUVs, on the other hand, have electronic driving aids that operate via brake intervention.
