If you are interested in
owning a UTV, UTV Guide is here to help

make buying decisions.
Although they are most
commonly known as UTVs (Utility Terrain Vehicle or just Utility Vehicle) or
Side-by-Side Vehicles, they are also known as SxS, RUV (Recreational Utility

because a driver and a passenger sit side-by-side in the vehicle. And then the
military calls them Lightweight Tactical All Terrain
So your think you are ready to buy a new side by side vehicle,
but don't know which one to get. Is there a "perfect" UTV? That is a tough question
