Choosing the Right All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)

All-terrain vehicles, also known as ATVs, four-wheelers and quads are very popular in the United States and are used for a number of activities including sport competition, agriculture and recreation. Designed to maneuver over more difficult types of terrain than a normal vehicle, ATVs come in many different sizes and styles ranging from youth models up to large utility vehicles.

This type of vehicle is generally heavier and slower. They can be used to pull small trailers and hold cargo and can usually carry one or two people. Utility ATVs can be either two wheel or four wheel drive and are ideal for rugged terrain. These ATVs are commonly used by farmers, law enforcement officers, hunters and those who just want to have a good time off road.


These ATVs are typically smaller than the larger utility ATVs. Many models are not equipped with four wheel drive or reverse capabilities. However, this type of vehicle is built for speed. Usually used for racing, sport ATVs are meant for one person. They can also be used for recreational off-road activities.

Side by Side:

Side by side ATVs, also known as SxS,have the ability to carry passengers and cargo while also being able to maneuver over rugged terrain. This type of vehicle looks similar to a golf cart but has the suspension of a sport quad and a more powerful engine. Side by sides are useful for work because they typically have a bed on the rear that is useful for hauling tools or other materials.Because many models have four wheel drive capabilities, they are also widely used in off-road recreation.
