* Another of the small-SUV companies (the Honda CR-V?) ran an ad where a couple were able to get very close to deer in their smaller vehicle before a brute in a 'regular' SUV came crashing in and scared the animals away.

...very little of which will see any use. 90% of the people who buy these behemoths deploy them in {{suburbia}}, shuttling tots to soccer games and groceries back to the house. Fuel economy will be laughable. The driver will be a very tiny woman CompensatingForSomething, [[MidlifeCrisisCar a man in his midlife crisis]] who is ''also'' CompensatingForSomething, a [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Mexican]] [[TheCartel cartel boss]] looking for something intimidating that can comfortable seat all his goons, or a celebrity using it to flaunt his wealth (pro athletes, [[GlamRap rap musicians]], and [[TheAhnold action movie stars]] are the most common), in which case it will likely also be a PimpedOutCar. When it comes time for Junior to get his own license, expect the kid to either shudder at the thought of steering this tank around or go mad with power through several subdivisions and ultimately ditch his Monsterrat in someone's backyard pool.

...very little of which will be used by 90% of the people who buy it. Instead, it will most likely serve as a mall crawler in {{suburbia}} (or a "[[FunWithAcronyms suburban utility vehicle]]"), shuttling tots to soccer games and groceries back to the house. Fuel economy will be measured in either the single digits or in gallons per mile. The driver will be either a very tiny woman CompensatingForSomething, [[MidlifeCrisisCar a man in his midlife crisis]] who is ''also'' CompensatingForSomething, a [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Mexican]] [[TheCartel cartel boss]] looking for something huge, intimidating, and capable of seating lots of goons with lots of firepower, or a celebrity using it to flaunt his wealth (pro athletes, [[GlamRap rap musicians]], and [[TheAhnold action movie stars]] are the most common), in which case it will likely also be a PimpedOutCar. When it comes time for Junior to get his or her license, expect the kid to shudder at the thought of having to maneuver the thing.

The rough equivalent for smaller cars is the RiceBurner, though some have tried to combine the two. In the '00s, luxury [=SUVs=] were often fitted with gigantic rims (or "dubs", after the DUB Wheels company that was famous for them), scissor doors, hydraulics, earth-rattling stereo systems, and other modifications to make them that much flashier. Today, a more direct example exists with so-called [[http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/psa-bro-truck-vs-off-road-truck-1467061508 "bro trucks"]], which have all manner of modifications (particularly lift kits and large wheels) to make them look like off-road vehicles, with little consideration for whether they actually improve off-road performance. Most often, they will never leave the suburbs.

* ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' had a storyline where Roger went to a "Humbler" dealership. Said vehicle turns out to be comically huge, have a gas mileage of 25 ''meters'' per gallon, and is hinted to be so heavy that it ''affects the orbit of the Sun''.

* Mentioned in ''ForzaMotorsport 4'''s [[TechnologyPorn Autovista]] mode, when [[TopGear Jeremy Clarkson]] talks about the Hummer H1 Alpha, describing how it can drive through 20 inch deep flooded roads perfectly fine, then noting that it is not something generally encountered on the way to the gym.
* Averted with the SUV's in ''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.

* 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:
-->'''Nacho:''' You think I'd be caught dead driving that thing? It looks like a school bus for six year old pimps.

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 its 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". 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...

** The episodes "The Last Temptation of Krust" and "Marge Simpson in: 'Screaming Yellow Honkers'" feature the Canyonero. The truck's commercial jingle makes up the image caption. The latter episode centers around Homer purchasing one, but when he finds that his is an "F-series" model, which means that it's female-oriented (it has a lipstick holders built in instead of a lighter), he proceeds to give it to Marge, which causes her to develop some serious [[DrivesLikeCrazy road rage]]. It's Marge's car in ''VideoGame/TheSimpsonsHitAndRun''. (Note that "Twelve yards long, two lanes wide" would make it larger than the biggest functional tank ever constructed.)
