Trucks vs SUVs: What’s the Difference?

June 6th, 2018 by

One of the best things about being Chrysler dealers serving Canton, OH and nearby areas is being able to represent some of the most respected brands in the world. Because we sell high-quality vehicles produced by multiple automakers, we have a nice selection of body styles in our new car inventory.

Choosing the right body style is just as important as selecting the right model. In fact, a strong case can be made that picking the right body style is even more critical to your ability to get the most out of being a car owner.

We know that the investment a driver makes in an automobile is often the second largest the person will make, right behind the individual’s first home. With this in mind, we help motorists choose the body style that’s best for them on a daily basis.

Many drivers often ask us if a truck or an SUV is the body style that will support their lifestyle the best. Whether you should buy a truck or an SUV depends on an assortment of factors. One of the most important things to consider is how many seats you’ll need. In general, SUVs have the potential for seating for up to eight passengers. Trucks will typically have seats for two to five passengers.

What you’ll use your vehicle for most often is another important consideration. If you haul a lot of gear or tow heavy equipment regularly, you may want a truck, as models like the 2018 RAM 2500 have more cargo room and towing capacity than SUVs. While trucks can usually tow more weight, SUVs like the 2018 Dodge Journey can still tow lighter loads and they have a generous amount of cargo room.

If you’re trying to decide whether you should buy or lease a truck or an SUV, we can help. Visit Fred Martin Superstore to talk to our sales team today!
