Can't Decide Whether a New Ford SUV or Truck is Right for You? We Can Help!

At Roush Ford, located in Columbus, we have a great selection of new Ford trucks and new Ford SUVS. If you're looking for a new vehicle and haven't decided which body style is the right fit for you, we'll help you out!

What are your passenger needs?

If you have a large family, or do a lot of carpooling in Dublin, you need a lot of seats. The three-row Ford Explorer has room for up to seven and the three-row Expedition up to seven or eight.

The Ford F-150 — our most popular pickup — can seat up to six passengers, but only with certain configurations. It's not going to be a roomy ride, either!

Our verdict: the SUVS are better for comfortably transporting passengers.

How much do you want to tow?

Once you get into the larger SUV and truck segments, towing becomes a truly, realistic option. Depending on the cab style, bed length, and engine size, the Ford F-150 can tow 5,000 - 13,200 pounds. If you want to tow a big camper or a boat, the truck is a strong contender.

That said, we don't want to rule out the SUVS. When properly equipped the Expedition can tow up to 9,300 pounds, which is fairly impressive and beats some of the F-150's capabilities. If you need room for people and want to tow, the Expedition might be a better option.

Our verdict: if you need pure numbers to tow around Hilliard then the F-150 is the winner, but if you need to tow and transport people then consider an SUV.

Are you accomplishing dirty jobs?

SUVS have a lot of cargo space, but it's no fun utilizing the space when you have dirty gear or bulky items. With hauling needs like these, an F-150 truck bed is a better option. The height of that dresser you find will be of no concern, and if any dirt and debris is left behind you can simply hose down the truck bed. Another perk: when you haul with a truck you don't take up seats.

Our verdict: get the truck if you plan on hauling big and possibly dirty items around Grove City.

So, what move will you make? Come down to our dealership to test drive the body style that will be a better fit for your lifestyle and needs!
