Don't try to offroad it though...

Someone should let us do some destructive analysis to see how much offraoding is acceptable in these things. Autoblog could hook us up with a tester I'm sure

"However, as [Hennessey] hasn't run the new vehicle through a battery of tests, the company prefers to err on the side of caution, telling owners that the SUV is designed for light to moderate off-road duties."
