* Done in ''Series/BetterCallSaul'' when Daniel Warmold, a rookie drug dealer, gets in way over his head and uses his new drug money to buy a pimped-out yellow Hummer with red flames on the side and spinning rims. Naturally, Nacho Varga chooses to rip him off as a result, stealing Daniel's money and baseball cards. Because Daniel goes to the police about the cards, Mike is forced to broker a deal with Nacho to keep themselves from getting caught, wherein Nacho gets Daniel's Hummer in exchange for returning the baseball cards. Upon receiving the car, Nacho announces his immediate intentions to destroy the car for parts:

* Occurs in season eleven of ''Series/TrailerParkBoys''. Between seasons, Julian bought a lifted Jeep Wrangler four door, which Bubbles calls a "Franchise/GIJoe car". Ricky later has a brake failure while driving to the junkyard and hits a lifted heavy-duty Dodge Ram, complete with transport truck-like smoke stacks in place of a regular exhaust. Bubbles calls it a "hobbit truck", since the drivers are usually [[CompensatingForSomething rather short]]. Sure enough, two very short men get out to assess the damage (Ricky's car is virtually undamaged, but theirs has a large dent in the rear fender).

* ''WesternAnimation/MissionHill'': An unmade episode has Andy and Jim combatting owners of large [=SUVs=]. The first one they encounter is seen parked in an underground lot in several handicap spots. When they look inside, they see a small child in a playpen in the cargo area.

** Parodied in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' with [[GTARadio radio ads]] for the "Maibatsu Monstrosity", an SUV that can seat 12, cross rivers ("so far I've only hit a few puddles. But it's good to know it's there!") and arctic tundra. And only gets 3 miles per gallon.

* Averted with the SUV's in ''VideoGame/TestDrive Unlimited 2'' where their whole purpose is for off-road racing that the Classic or Asphault classes struggle to grip dirt roads. Although via wrecks, you can find dedicated off-roaders such as a V8 buggy or a Lancia Stratos rally car.

A gigantic sport-utility vehicle, built under the philosophy that BiggerIsBetter, basically making it the SpiritualSuccessor to [[TheFifties 1950s]] cars with giant tail-fins. Smaller cars, or at least their drivers, tremble in fear at this [[Series/BetterCallSaul school bus for six year old pimps]]' presence on the highway--or maybe it's because the road itself is shaking under its weight. The name will be something bold, authoritative and often referring to freedom, power and the rugged wilderness, like "Crusader", "Passport" or "Kilimanjaro". [[CrazyPrepared It's filled with all sorts of equipment to help it tow trailers, climb mountains, and get through the rain, snow, sleet, hail, mud, and whatever else Mother Nature can throw at it...]]

* ''WesternAnimation/OverTheHedge'' had the antagonist driving around in one, while simultaneously talking on her cell phone and drinking coffee. As RJ explains when he introduces the forest animals to suburbia, "Humans drive around in these because they are slowly losing their ability to walk."

* Lampooned in ''Film/RoboCop1987'' with an advert for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fl8mQhxhE_Q the "6000 S.U.X."]] that's briefly seen on a TV screen. It's an enormous sedan that gets a whopping 8.2 mpg. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Concepts for the cars]] had it using a jet engine - an even more hilariously inefficient engine.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles,'' Thomas Raith, RichIdiotWithNoDayJob extraordinaire (well, he does have a day job at this point, but it's at an upscale hair salon so it doesn't count) gets a monstrous white Hummer in ''Small Favor'' which Harry [[PersonOfMassDestruction promptly half-wrecks]]. Harry's slightly put out that it's not the military model with bulletproof windows when people start shooting at him, although he does admit that heated leather seats are ''very'' comfortable.

* ''Comic/OverTheHedge'' had a strip, later incorporated into [[WesternAnimation/OverTheHedge the movie]], in which Hammy asked how many humans can fit into a vehicle so huge. [[DeadpanSnarker RJ]]'s response: "One."
