The most popular vehicles in Ulaanbaatar are old SUVs, Toyota Land Cruisers being the preferred model.  Like this fine specimen in a car dealership lot with it’s German license plates still on, all of the cars are are imported used from overseas.

Don’t worry, as a North American suburbanite never having driven your SUV off of a paved road, you should rest assured your SUV will be driven to it’s death on the types of roads that it was engineered for.  I think the average life of a car suspension in Ulaanbaatar might be around six months, and that’s driving on the roads.
