Higher ground clearance has many advantages for off-highway driving. It allows you to travel over bumps, obstacles, and rough terrain. It also provides good visibility so you can anticipate problems earlier. Your vehicle also has a shorter wheelbase, allowing it to respond quicker to the steering wheel than other sport utility vehicles with a longer wheelbase.
