TRUCK. it is based off of the silverado. admittedly, my definitions are somewhat rigid as i consider there to be no such things as SUVs. I consider vehicles which are truck based(body on frame) to be trucks(tahoe, expedition, suburban) , and car based vehicles to be cars(CRV, highlander, Rav4. Land Rovers and Jeeps are 4x4s. Where did the term "sport utility vehicle" come from anyway? what is sporty about them?

The cars may be on the same frames but its a SUV b/c of the body.

If you take a S10 and fit it to a cobalt frame are you still going to call it a sport compact? No its a truck, frames mean nothing body is what determines the type of vehicle.

SUV but I believe some states my register it as truck, since in all reality that is what it is. I drive a Suburban, here in WI they do not register it as a truck.

its nothing more than a truck with an integrated bed cap.

it's, for intents and purposes, a Chevy (C10) series truck (correct me if i'm wrong, i'm not up to date on chevy truck codes), with a bedcap that is lined, and some carpeting in the trunk.

It's an SUV. If it has 4 doors and no truck bed. It's an SUV.
