Six SUVs You Can Practically Steal This Month

August 2, 2010

It sounds so 1999, but the SUV is showing signs of life.

By some measures, SUVs are the fastest-selling category of new car this summer. If you're counting by days' worth of inventory, utes like the Audi Q7 are among the vehicles in shortest supply in dealer lots as automakers ramp up for the 2011 model year.

SUVs are all over your TV--you've seen the ads for the new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and its All-American heritage (sure, it's owned by the Italians now, but it's built in Detroit), and we're sure you caught some of the world premiere of the 2011 Ford Explorer last week across the country, and all over Facebook.

Americans are buying more SUVs again, at a rate that's left some showrooms empty. Still, a handful of sport-utes are being left out of the rush--which is great news for car shoppers, since slack demand makes it possible to walk away with one for a bargain price.

With help from our pricing partners at, we've identified six SUVs that could be available at bargain prices this summer. A few of your best new sport-ute deals for this month could include:
