Five New SUVs for Sale

Sport utility vehicles are a popular way to lug around a family, groceries and more during New England winters.

Winter may be over, but you know there's another one awaiting us, and with it visions of spinning tires in the snow dancing in our heads. 

While they may not be as popular as when gas prices were low and for some have become symbolic of American excess, driving a sport utility vehicle (SUV) still makes sense for New Englanders. Lots of room to lug around a family, groceries, ski equipment and whatever else you have, combined with truck-like power to keep you on the move during the next nor'easter.

Did this end up on the Somerville patch by mistake? Who moves to Somerville because they want to drive an SUV?

Haha, well played.

Jeep is priced pretty low. Does this mean they will continue to fall apart?
