Car vs. Truck vs. SUV: Which is Right for You?

Last updated 6 years ago

Before browsing the lineup at Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, one of the first things you will have to consider is which car body style is best for your needs.  Consider the main differences between three major car body styles at your Chevy, GMC, and Buick dealership:

  • Car

Sedans are popular all-around vehicles for transportation, comfort, and convenience.  Designed to provide a comfortable ride and maneuverable handling, car sizes range from the compact Chevy Sonic to the large and luxurious Buick LaCrosse.  Cars typically offer the best fuel economy and relatively low maintenance costs, though their size often limits their cargo space.

  • Truck

Trucks remain unsurpassed in their off-road capability and hauling capacities.  They also come in a variety of different sizes, though their superior utility often comes at the cost of fuel economy.  Despite their traditional workhorse image, several pickup truck models in the Chevy and GMC lineups offer a variety of features and seating configurations to offer premium comfort as well as power.

  • SUV

Due to their popularity, there are several types of SUVs in the American auto market.  SUVs built on car-based platforms, commonly marketed as crossovers, are engineered to offer a comparable level of on-road handling as sedans while providing ample cargo space.  Some SUV models also provide a similar level of utility and off-road handling as pickup trucks in higher trim levels.
