Sports utility vehicles have always been popular among drivers, and have seen growth even in urban areas. They offer a roomy interior, lots of cargo space, and the go-anywhere aspects of a truck with an attractive exterior sure to please most modern drivers. They are one of the best vehicles on the market in terms of versatility and offer an attractive alternative to the minivan for many parents. Here are just a few of the perks of owning a Ford SUV in Chicago.
This is one of the biggest advantages to an SUV, especially for families. Children, their friends, and the family animal can all fit comfortably inside, with enough legroom and seating space to avoid getting too close to one another. Most SUVs offer versatile seating options, so when you’re not driving the carpool to soccer practice, you can tuck some of those extra seats away, giving you extra room for luggage or other items on long family trips.
Ford SUVs have high towing capacity, making them an attractive but competitive alternative to a pick-up truck. Families who to tow boats, trailers, or other vehicles can without worrying about the extra strain placed on the vehicle. While trucks are still the better option in terms of high towing capacity, most trucks simply can’t offer the extra seating and storage options that can be found in an SUV.
SUVs are much better at handling tough driving conditions than other vehicles, making them some of the safest vehicles on the road. They have a high undercarriage, making it easier to drive over rocks and other obstacles on the road without damage to the vehicle, something simply not possible in a smaller car or even in some minivans. They also have a front grill to provide extra safety and protection to the passengers, and to the vehicle’s engine.
