Representative Lewis raises some serious concerns - what are we, as patriotic citizens, to do when a president is elected with the aid of an enemy foreign power?

I have read numerous accounts referring to the Hyundai Tuscon as an "SUV".  Isn't is a crossover or CUV?  How interchangable are these terms? Because I thought that a crossover is based on a car's platform, while an SUV uses the chassis of a truck. The result being that crossovers use "unibody" architecture, meaning the body and frame are one piece, while SUVs use a "body on frame" design. In that case, the body is built separately from the frame and placed together later.

Here's the thing, while that definition is strictly true ... it doesn't always work in practice. For example, many shoppers refer to car-based, unibody vehicles as SUVs even though they're crossovers by Mongo's definition. How often, for example, do you hear the Ford Explorer called an SUV? Or the Toyota Highlander? Or the Jeep Grand Cherokee? All use a car-based unibody design, despite their appearance and marketing.

The result is that the term "SUV" is often applied to both crossovers and SUVs. In the past, that was even more common before "SUV" brought up negative associations with large size and poor gas mileage. That's when many automakers started using the term "crossover" to describe a vehicle that was "crossing over" from the practicality of an SUV to the drivability and fuel efficiency of a car.

If you're unsure whether your vehicle of choice uses a car-based unibody design or body-on-frame construction, the safest bet is to use the term "SUV." That acronym is still used to describe nearly anything with available all-wheel drive and raised ground clearance, so you'll probably be safe.

That said, many popular family haulers -- such as the Explorer, Highlander and Grand Cherokee, as well as the Nissan Pathfinder, Lexus RX and Acura MDX -- are technically crossovers. Using that term is certainly correct, too.

The only way you'll go wrong is by using the term "crossover" to define a body-on-frame SUV. Examples of such vehicles include the Chevrolet Tahoe, Ford Expedition and Mercedes G-Class. Those are all still SUVs in the original sense of the term -- and in those cases, "crossover" doesn't apply.

The Tuscon is the smaller of the Hyundai crossovers. The Santa Fe is bigger. The Terracan SUV and Veracruz CUV are defunct.
