As a trusted RAM dealership serving New Philadelphia, Village Motors Inc. is proud to offer a wide range of high-quality vehicles. From RAM trucks to Dodge SUVs, we have it all. However, sometimes variety can be confusing. This is especially true if you’re a new car buyer.

If you already know that you need a car that has towing capabilities and plenty of carrying capacity, an SUV or a truck is a good option. We’re here to tell you the pros and cons of buying each.

Buying an SUV – Pros and Cons

Village Motors offers plenty of high-quality SUVs, from the Jeep® Cherokee to the Dodge Durango. Here’s a breakdown of the pros and cons of buying an SUV.


  • More seating for friends and family
  • Great handling
  • Broader build than most pickup trucks


  • Less trunk space than a truck
  • Less towing capability usually

Buying a Pickup Truck

Pickup trucks like the RAM 1500 are loved by those who prefer a capable and cool-looking vehicle. However, they have their advantages and disadvantages.


  • Bed allows for easy transportation of large items
  • Higher towing capacity than SUVs
  • Looks cool


  • Less space and seating
  • Not as easy to handle on snowy or rainy roads

All in all, whether you should choose a pickup truck or an SUV depends on what you’ll be using it for. If you regularly need to tow and haul objects, a pickup truck may be your best choice. If you need a high carrying capacity and would like the capability to tow basic things, an SUV may be best.
