Used SUVs come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and purposes. Smaller models are fuel-efficient and are great for college students and casual commuters, while larger SUVs can handle towing while also offering more cargo space. Midsize SUV models are typically off-roaders or models used for average-sized families to commute in. Here at DePaula Chevrolet, we’ve got several model options for each SUV/crossover category.
First up, if you’re looking for a compact SUV, you’re going to want something like the Ford Escape, the GMC Terrain, or the Nissan Rogue. Other relevant models include the Honda CR-V and the Subaru Forester. These models offer more cargo space than a car and slight towing capabilities while still remaining fuel-efficient.
The midsize SUV is what most average-sized families go for. These models vary in tow capacity, but on average, tow much more than a compact SUV can. Since they’re more powerful than compact SUVs, these models aren’t as fuel-efficient, but they offer better fuel economy ratings than full-size SUVs. Examples of midsize SUVs include the Chevrolet Blazer, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Nissan Murano, and the Ford Edge.
Want the maximum possible tow capacity an SUV can offer? You’ll want to stick with the full-size SUV. This is where you’ll find third-row seating options and maximum tow capacity. While these models aren’t as powerful as a full-size truck, they can often tow as much as a midsize truck (think the Ford Ranger or Chevrolet Colorado). Examples of the full-size SUV include the Chevrolet Tahoe, the Toyota Sequoia, and the GMC Yukon.
If you’re just looking for a commuter model, you really can’t go wrong with a good ole sedan. There are many different sedans out there—some are made for performance, some for commuting, and others for passengers and cargo. No matter which way you spin it, sedans are typically the most fuel-efficient and the least spacious compared to other vehicle types. These cars are made with commuters in mind. Common sedan examples include the Toyota Camry, the Nissan Altima, the Chevrolet Malibu, and the Ford Fusion.
When you need a bit more versatility than what an SUV can offer, a truck might be the perfect solution. Trucks come in several different classifications, all of which are available here at DePaula Chevy. Whether you want to hit the trails, tow a fishing boat, or haul a loaded livestock trailer, you can find a used truck that will fit your needs.
Compact trucks are so small that SUVs can out tow them. These trucks are designed more for style and cargo than they are for utility, unlike other truck classes. While compact trucks have existed in the past, there actually aren’t very many for sale today. In fact, the only modern compact truck on the market is the Ford Maverick.
Midsize trucks are great for off-roading and casual usage. These models are great for off-roading because of how lightweight they are compared to full-size and heavy-duty trucks. Many midsize trucks come in off-roading trims, which further enhances their off-road capability thanks to better suspension, skid plates, and additional add-ons. Even if you’re not the off-roading type, the midsize truck is more than enough for you if you just need something to haul a fishing boat or pull-behind cargo trailer. Some examples of a midsize truck include the Chevy Colorado, the GMC Canyon, the Ford Ranger, and the Nissan Titan.
Now let’s talk about the full-size truck. Here, you’ll find the 1500-level truck and everything above it; however, it’s important to note that there are important differences between each full-size truck classification. The 1500-level truck is the “in-between'' of the truck classes. The 1500-level truck is a popular model because it is average at everything. It can tow a lot, and it's the perfect size for both maneuverability and power. Common examples of the 1500-level full-size truck include the Chevy Silverado 1500, the Ford F-150, and the RAM 1500.
Full-size trucks can go all the way up to commercial levels, but consumer trucks max out at 3500. Both the 2500 and 3500-level categories are considered “heavy-duty,” meaning that your average everyday truck driver doesn’t need one. These trucks are designed with hardcore labor in mind, such as farming and heavy cargo transportation. If you want to reach the optimal max tow capacity that a consumer truck can handle, you’ll likely find it in a 3500-level truck with a diesel engine. Examples of these HD trucks include the Chevy Silverado 3500, the Ford F-350, and the RAM 3500.
