There are certain situations where only a pickup truck will do. While the Mazda CX-9
and Mazda CX-5
are capable, versatile SUVs, pickup trucks are built for the toughest jobs out there. To that end, we're pleased to offer a wide selection of used pickup trucks here at Tracy Mazda. Just take a look at our selection.
What Can a Pickup Do That an SUV Can't?
SUVs are known as some of the best vehicles around, given their ample interior space, second- and (in some models) third-row seats, and general emphasis on comfort. A pickup truck, on the other hand, won't be as ideal for families—there's a lot less interior space, though some double-cab models may afford you a second row of seating.
But when you opt for a used pickup over an SUV
, you gain some things, too. some of the advantages include:
- Increased Capability: While most SUVs can tow a little, pickup trucks are practically built for the purpose, and it shows in terms of their towing and payload capacities, which will usually outshine any SUV's capabilities.
- Weight and MPG: This will depend on the truck and its engine, but in some cases a small pickup may have better fuel economy than a comparable SUV on account of its lower weight.
- Cargo Versatility: While pickup trucks have less interior storage than SUVs as a general rule, the cargo they can fit in their bed isn't restricted by a ceiling, making them ideal for transporting larger, more unwieldy objects.
Ultimately, a truck is likely what you want if your focus is on raw capability. If you'd like to check out our selection of used pickup trucks and take a test-drive, visit our dealership
