Chevrolet Dealers - Decide Between Truck and SUV

Chevrolet dealers are known for their extensive selection of both trucks and sport-utility vehicles. Chevrolet is a leading brand for both types of vehicles, and you will have your choice of quality models for both when you are ready to go shopping.

With so many great models to choose from, you may have a hard time deciding. With so many things to recommend both a truck and an SUV, you may have a hard time deciding between the two, as well.

Here are a few tips to help you decide whether you need a truck or an SUV:

Cargo Space

One of the biggest reasons that most people buy both a truck and an SUV is that they want more cargo room. However, the exact type of things that you need to transport will determine whether a truck or an SUV is a better option for you.

For example, if you want more space for luggage on family vacations or more room to store sports equipment for trips to team practice, an SUV is probably the better choice. But if you want space to haul furniture, yard equipment or landscaping materials like mulch, then you will be better off with a truck.

Passenger Room

If all you need is a utility vehicle, then cargo space is the only thing you’ll need to worry about. But most of us also have passengers and families to transport. A truck or an SUV can meet your needs in either case.

However, if you have a large family or younger children, then you probably want to get an SUV, which has space for car seats. If it’s just you and a partner or your children are older, you can get a truck. Some extended cab trucks can accommodate smaller families of four even with younger children.


Chevy dealers offer some of the best pricing on both Chevrolet trucks and SUVs. However, trucks do tend to price a bit higher than SUVs, on average. Bigger trucks and those with extended cabs will top out the list. But if you need just a basic pickup, you can get one for the same price as an SUV or even less.

Whether you choose to buy a truck or an SUV, Chevrolet dealers are the best place to shop. You’ll have your pick of quality vehicles for great prices, and you’ll get some of the best service in town.
