You have a lot of options when it comes to finding your perfect next car. Not only are the choices nearly endless with all the segments, makes, and models, but here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we offer an extensive inventory of the world’s best new 2018 and 2019 models.
Drivers in the Baxley, GA area have no shortage of amazing vehicles to explore. While that’s a great thing, it can also be a bit overwhelming. Understanding what differentiates one model from another can be a lot of work, and we often get asked what separates a crossover from an SUV.
It’s a popular question, and we’re here to help. The technical differences come down to the platform. A crossover uses a car chassis and a unibody design while an SUV uses a truck chassis and a body on frame design. The former means that both body and frame are constructed as one unit. The latter indicates that both are built separately and attached later.
So what does this mean? The SUV construction allowed for more substantial, sturdier vehicles built to handle more challenging terrains and offered excellent towing capabilities and roominess. The crossover construction allowed for more passenger and cargo space while still providing the ride quality and convenience of a car.
However, thanks to advancements in vehicle technology, the qualities, and attributes of these segments have blended. For example, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee provides SUV-like power and ability but has a unibody design.
While you can easily find traditional truck-like SUVs like the 2018 Dodge Durango, there are plenty of options that adopt a little of both worlds to give you the best experience. That’s why we recommend you visit us today and take your favorites for a test drive to find your fit.
