You know you need a versatile vehicle that is strong and capable. That description applies to both trucks and SUVs. Which is the better fit for you? Consider the following factors.
How many people do you regularly plan on driving with? If you will mostly be driving solo, a truck or small SUV may be the best choice. However, if you have a large family that needs more than five seats, a three-row SUV will fit you best.
Do you need a new vehicle because you plan on doing some towing? How much towing power do you need? Trucks like the GMC Sierra 1500 can tow over 13,000 pounds when properly equipped. As for the GMC Yukon, its maximum towing capacity is 8,400 pounds.
There is nothing quite like the versatility of an open cargo bed in a truck. The GMC Sierra 1500 has a rugged bed with more cargo space than any other competing truck. It comes in at 89.1 cubic feet. However, when it comes to maximum cargo volume, an SUV still beats a truck. The GMC Yukon XL offers up to 144.7 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seats folded. Do you want cargo space that is always available, or do you want the versatility of switching between cargo and passengers?
