If you’re shopping for a new family vehicle, you may find yourself trying to choose between the capability of a truck and the comforts of an SUV. To help make that decision a little bit easier, here’s a guide to the benefits of each.
Advantages Of A Truck
If you need the power and capability to tow heavy loads, consider the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or Silverado HD. For a more compact ride that still packs plenty of muscle, check out the Chevrolet Colorado. These workhorses are great for bringing along campers, ATVs, boats, or trailers. Thanks to the Durabed’s class-leading cargo volume, the Silverado makes it easy to transport home-improvement materials, landscaping items, furniture, and outdoor adventure gear, so it’s perfect for families with an active lifestyle.
Perks Of An SUV
If you’ve got three or more kids — or large four-legged friends you’d like to bring along for the ride — an SUV like the Chevy Tahoe or Suburban might be a better fit for your needs. These spacious, three-row vehicles offer seating for over seven passengers, along with roomy cargo areas that are perfect for accommodating pet crates and luggage alike. On top of that, SUVs tend to offer better fuel economy than trucks, so if you’ve got a long commute, an SUV might be right for you.
