Top 10 Least Expensive SUVs of 2008

SUVs run the gamut, from reasonably petite ones that can oh-so-delicately finesse tighter spaces to gargantuan ones that don't require a parking spot so much as a landing strip. Their prices run the gamut, too, but there are plenty of great picks for those on a budget.

This brings us to the economy-priced vehicles shown below. These 10 choices are 2008's least expensive SUVs, with rankings based on MSRP. All are compact to midsize models, available for less than $20 large. Remember, though, that for these sweet prices, you're getting the most basic trim available. Plan on forking over some extra coin to upgrade your vehicle with select options.

Some of these SUVs also feature rebates and incentives, presenting even bigger savings opportunities. Investigate each vehicle's True Market Value before deciding on a purchase.
