Thesaurus Term : Utility Task Vehicles

Scope note
A utility task vehicle often called a side-by-side (sometimes written as SxS) or a MOHUV (multipurpose off-highway utility vehicle is a small 2- to 6-person four-wheel drive off-road vehicle, also called UTV (utility vehicle or utility task vehicle). UTVs differ from all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) in that UTVs typically have a side-by-side seating arrangement, many have seat belts and roll-over protection, and most have a cargo box at the rear of the vehicle. UTVs generally have a higher payload capability and are longer and wider than ATVs. The payload on a UTV is usually carried below the top of the tires—as opposed to an ATV, which carries its load above the fenders. This lower load-positioning can drastically lower the vertical center of gravity, which increases stability. UTVs come in a number of different configurations. Some have four tires on the ground, some have six or more.
