Coupes, sedans, and even hatchbacks and SUVs can’t haul like a truck can. By definition, trucks area designed to transport cargo. If you’re moving something large like a couch or other furniture, you won’t be restricted by height like you would in other vehicles. Also, things like dirt and rocks can be carried in the bed of a truck without dirtying up the interior of the vehicle.
Trucks are ideal for towing all sorts of trailers. Whether you have a travel trailer, a boat, or any other type of trailer, it won’t do you any good unless you have a vehicle capable of towing it. Some smaller vehicles can be fitted with a trailer hitch, but they aren’t likely to have the towing power or control to compete with an actual truck. The last thing you want is to get into an accident that wrecks not only your car, but whatever you were towing as well. Also, if you ever come across someone in need of a tow, you can save them from calling for expensive towing services.
Depending on your job or hobbies, you may need the off-roading capabilities of a truck. For example, if you enjoy camping or own a cabin, sometimes the roads on the way there aren’t paved and are full of dips and rocks. Also, during bad weather even the nicest of roads can turn into off-road-like situations. With four-wheel drive and other features, you can handle any road, or lack thereof, like a champ. So the next time you’re browsing trucks at a Ford dealer in Chicagoland, you can feel a little better about making a perfectly practical decision.
