Top 10 Least Expensive SUVs To Insure for 2006

From Edmunds.com

With gas prices going nowhere but up, SUVs are costly enough to operate — you don't need a steep insurance bill making things worse. Many of the variables influencing your insurance rate are difficult to change: where you live, your driving record, your yearly mileage, and so on.

But if you're still in the market for a ute, take comfort in knowing there's one aspect of your insurance equation that you can easily influence: the kind of SUV you drive. The make and model of your vehicle plays a significant part in determining your auto insurance rate. It makes sense, then, to consider this factor when deciding on a new ride.
