If you visit our car dealership you’ll find a wide selection of vehicles of all shapes and sizes. At Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM we’re all about sharing knowledge, and we know plenty about the connection between auto body styles and performance.

What’s the difference between an SUV (sports utility vehicle) and a compact sedan? Or a pickup truck and a minivan? Well, aside from features and engines, the body type of a car can vary dramatically, and it can be one of the vehicle’s most defining elements.

An SUV for instance, like some of the Jeep models in our showroom, are designed to provide a lot of space for both cargo and passengers. Of course, some SUVs are tailored more for off-roading like the Jeep Wrangler, and in almost any case a well-equipped SUV is going to outperform almost any other kind of vehicle when tested on the trail.

On the other hand, pickup trucks are made for drivers who want all utility, cargo capacity, and engine power. Pickup trucks are typically well-powered and have large rear beds for storage. A pickup truck, like the 2020 RAM 1500, would be a great fit for anyone who sees their car more as a workhorse than anything else. And if you compare a pickup truck and a compact sedan in the realm of cargo hauling, the pickup truck will excel by leaps and bounds.

So, as you can tell the body type of a car can be a defining factor. Fortunately, if you’re not sure which kind of car to purchase when you visit our showroom at Sansone Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, one of our dealers can help you find the car and body style that fits your lifestyle need.
