Sam Posted: 10/13/2011 2:34am PDT What SUV weights between 3000 and 3500lbs? A suzuki Samurai??? Chevy Tahoes are like 5,000lbs. So yes, your statistic is totally flawed. If a full-sized SUV hits someone, its gonna do a TON of damage. If its a tiny micro-suv like a samurai or kia sportage, then no, its a piece of tin foil.
