SUVs and 4WDs are heavy duty vehicles and are often exposed to the elements due to the harsh conditions they operate under. Most SUVs and 4WDs are often used in rough off-road situations, which is what they’re built for. Even so, this can take a toll on the batteries of these vehicles.

You would only need a deep cycle battery if you wanted to power a portable 12 volt fridge or other types of electrical accessories, if so you would need to set up a dual battery system in your vehicle. If it is only to start the vehicle a cranking/starting battery is all that is required.
Some of the most common reasons for a car battery to die repeatedly include loose or corroded battery connections, persistent electrical drains, charging problems, constantly demanding more power than the alternator can provide, and even extreme weather.
On average an SUV/4WD battery will cost between $150 and $300, although you can pay more. Factors affecting the cost of buying a battery are:
- Vehicle Type/Model
- Battery Capacity/CCA’s
- Battery Type
It is vitally important that your SUV/4WD has the correct battery installed so it is able to with stand both on road and off road usage.
The battery of an SUV usually lasts three to five years. However, it is always a good idea to keep an eye on the performance of the vehicle and the battery after the three year mark.
The weather also plays a part in the longevity of the battery as scorching heat will drain its life faster. Controlling corrosion, limiting short rides, keeping the battery tightly fastened to minimize vibration and turning off lights when exiting the vehicles are some of the maintenance measures that can be taken to maximize the lifespan of the battery.
As most SUV’s and 4WD’s are often operated in off road situations, they therefor require a battery that is manufactured to withstand the rough conditions in which they operate under. Having the correct battery is vitally important to the overall performance of your SUV/4WD.
