SUVs
Modern SUVs are incredibly versatile and come in all shapes, sizes, and capabilities. Many people choose to buy a crossover, like the Ford Escape. Crossovers have the classic look of an upright SUV, but they drive more like a sedan.  Most crossovers are available with all-wheel drive.

True SUVs have a body-on-frame design, like the Ford Expedition. An SUV will give you stronger towing capabilities and better off-road performance. They also come with four-wheel drive capabilities, which is more suited for rugged conditions.

Both SUVs and crossovers have spacious cabins and come well-equipped with technology. If you need three rows of seats, you are going to want an SUV or crossover. The Ford Explorer is an excellent three-row SUV with a modern design. SUVs and crossovers also give you lots of cargo versatility - you can use just the cargo area, or you can fold down the seats, when you need more space.

Trucks
Pickup trucks are the kings of hard work. They are designed to tow the heaviest loads and tackle the roughest conditions. However, they can also be a great choice for a family vehicle, especially in the spacious Crew Cab designs.

Trucks, like the Ford F-Series or mid-size Ranger, make it easy to load up whatever cargo you have. You can also expect strong towing capabilities and a wide range of engine options. This is one of the reasons why the F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in the United States. Modern Ford trucks are also extremely smart and can be equipped with a range of advanced technology that will make towing and other activities safer and easier.
