Is an SUV or Truck Better For Your Family?

Is A Truck or SUV Better For Your Family? | Walled Lake, MI

You have a lot of options when you’re shopping for a car, and you need a lot from your new ride to keep up with your lifestyle. Keep these tips in mind when you’re deciding if a SUV or truck is better for your family.

Interior Room

While trucks like the 2020 Ram 1500 have a lot of space in the bed, they are usually limited when it comes to interior room. The maximum amount of people the Ram 1500 can handle is six, with three people on the back bench and three in the front. If your family is larger (or your kids need a bit more space), the 2020 Dodge Durango can carry up to seven passengers.

Ready To Get Dirty

If you’re a weekend warrior, a truck bed like the one in the Jeep® Gladiator is great for hauling your supplies around. An SUV can have impressive cargo room, especially with the seats folded up, but you have to take extra steps to protect your interior carpeting.

Smooth Handling

Most SUVs and trucks are built on similar platforms, but the team at Consumer Reports says that SUVs typically have better handling of the two vehicle styles. If you’re a fan of road trips, this could be essential for your comfort for those long hours.
