As in previous years, the Motor Trend editors drove, inspected, poked, prodded, spanked, and debated over a diverse group for the the 2001 Of the Year competitions. With the dawn of the new millennium, we are offering deeper looks into how the important decision is made, with an exhaustive article on the testing to compliment the winners story, MT TV coverage, and extensive MT Radio interviews. Online, we've put together behind-the-scenes videos and photo galleries to show the team in action.
Below are a handful of images from our dirt-flinging Sport/Utility of the Year testing. For more behind the scenes coverage, visit the Car and Truck of the Year galleries.
