Mount Pocono and Scranton drivers love utility in their cars, and nowhere is utility more present than in minivans, SUVs, and trucks. However, each one offers a unique kind of utility. That's why you'll need to decide which vehicle type is right for you.

To help Tobyhanna, Stroudsburg, and East Stroudsburg drivers find their next vehicle, Ray Price Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR) has created this Minivan vs. SUV vs. Truck guide. Read on and learn how these three types of cars compare.

Minivans: Large Cargo Space, Tight Handling

If you enjoy driving a sedan but find yourself wanting more space for passengers and maybe some cargo as well, a minivan is a great choice. These vehicles are designed to move people with ease by offering spacious cabins, third-row seating, and all kinds of comfort features.

Minivans are all about interior versatility, offering you a home away from home where you can bring your whole family out for a trip. These vehicles can seat up to eight people while still offering foldable seats, so you can expand the cargo area quite a bit.

Plus, minivans are designed to be low to the ground, so you'll enjoy some improved handling due to a lower center of mass. This means that a minivan may be a good choice for drivers more accustomed to driving sedans.

Trucks: 4x4 & Ready to Tow

Drivers who plan on doing a lot more work with their vehicle are going to want one that won't back down to a bit of towing. Trucks are designed with the muscle you need to haul large cargo, and they even have a large storage bed for hauling longer items.

These vehicles are all about providing heavy-duty utility. If you want to do home landscaping or are bringing a trailer to a camping site, you'll want to go with a truck.

Many trucks feature a second seating area, allowing drivers to seat up to five extra people. With various cabin styles to choose from, you can find a model with four full-size doors, so everyone can get into the truck comfortably.

SUVs: Pure Versatility

If you like the enclosed storage area of a minivan and the off-roading or towing capabilities of a truck, an SUV is a great choice for you. SUVs deliver benefits from minivans and trucks, so you can have an all-wheel drive vehicle with a large cargo area that's great for daily driving.

SUVs cover a large segment of vehicle design. Therefore, you'll find models like crossovers that offer a compact build and good storage that's great for cities. For more towing-focused drivers, there are SUVs built with large V6 and V8 engines that can haul cargo with ease. There are even some SUVs that feature third-row seating, so everyone can come along for the ride.

Minivan vs SUV vs Truck: Verdict

For many drivers, the versatility of an SUV will appeal to a wide number of drivers. That being said, SUVs may not have the same cargo space as minivans nor offer nearly the same towing power as some of the more powerful trucks. If you want a vehicle for a more specialized purpose, a minivan or truck would be more suitable for your needs.
