Default SUV headlights (replacement bulbs seen @ Wal-Mart)

I have seen 'SUV & Truck' replacement bulbs at Wal-Mart the last couple times I was in there. The package say they are specifically for SUV'*, but the have them in 9006'*, and 9005'*. What is the difference between them and the regular bulbs?
I tried to see if they were higher wattage, but didn't see #'* and it didn't state the difference on the package. If they are brighter I might pick up a pair of the brights and see how they work being they are only like $15 for a pair.

ofcourse its just packaging, if they only wanted to sell to SUV owners they probally wouldnt make them to fit our cars, they want us to think its brighter and better than the standard halogen so we buy there product and use it.

if they say some goofy ## like 7000k, they're a waste... basically, the bulb runs hotter and gets dull faster... look for anything in the 4000 4300k range
