Trucks and SUVsWhat are some reasons to consider buying a truck or SUV?

First and foremost, people who have made the switch from a low-to-the-ground car to a higher-up truck or SUV say they absolutely love being higher off the ground. It allows them to see around the vehicle better, as well as see what’s in front of them, better, too. That added height also gives them a psychological sense of well-being, feeling somewhat safer “up there.”

For many people, it’s physically easier to step up and into a truck or SUV rather than having to get down low to get into a car. Indeed, many people have to awkwardly climb in and out of cars, twisting their bodies in unusual ways because the vehicle is so low to the ground, making the whole process awkward.

Speaking of awkward, if you’re tall, weigh more than the average person, have long legs, and like to have some elbow room, then it makes sense to buy a truck or SUV because they’re more spacious than most cars.

Next up, if you have kids, a truck or SUV can be a godsend, accommodating two kids in child seats as well as their strollers, diaper bags and other supplies. Meanwhile, if you have several kids, they’re going to fit much better in vehicle designed for 5 or more people, compared to a car which typically handles 4 people at best.

Trucks and SUVs are known for having more space than cars, and when that space isn’t used for hauling people around town, it can be used to haul other stuff, like dressers, big TVs, boxes, tools, bikes and more. If you have a boat, jetski, camper or other “big boy toy” that requires a trailer, it makes sense to hitch the trailer to a strong and sturdy truck or SUV more so than a little car, right?

Furthermore, if you live “out in the country” where you’re likely to encounter dirt roads and such, a truck/SUV can handle those better than most cars, especially thanks to having a higher ground clearance. These vehicles also work well for areas prone to a lot of snow in the wintertime.

Finally, you might want to buy a truck/SUV for work purposes, as a great place to store and haul tools, equipment, and heavy stuff you use “on the job.”
