Used SUV Dealership

You’re hauling kids to and from school, running errands around town, navigating your daily commute, or coming home from a weekend getaway when your well-loved SUV breaks down.

Types of SUVs: What’s the Best SUV for Me?

Did you know that SUV is a broad term that we use to describe several different body styles? SUVs are generally broken into several different categories: compact, midsize, full-size, and hybrid. These models are either built on a truck or car chassis, which is part of what determines their capability. For example, a compact SUV or crossover is typically built on a car chassis and, as a result, is not ideal for taking off the pavement and handles more like a sedan. However, full-size SUVs are built on a truck chassis and offer more capability on rugged terrain.

So, what kind of SUV should you get and why? It all depends on your driving style and what you expect from the vehicle. Here’s a breakdown of the different sizes and a few things to consider.


If you like to follow the latest trends and want to get behind the wheel of an efficient and spacious SUV, then look no further than the compact SUV market. Built on a car chassis and typically equipped with a four-cylinder or six-cylinder engine, compact SUVs are marketed as crossovers and offer the spaciousness of an SUV and the fuel economy of a sedan. This is what makes models like the Toyota RAV4 and the Honda CR-V top sellers in the market.

Buying a used compact SUV is a great option if you’re looking for a budget-friendly model. Because so many people are buying compact SUVs, the used market is filled with options. This makes it easy to find a great value vehicle that’s loaded with features, offers plenty of interior room, and delivers an outstanding fuel economy that means fewer stops at the pump and more money in your wallet.


If you’re accustomed to a larger and more capable ride, then a midsize SUV should be at the top of your list. Typically built on a truck chassis, most midsize SUVs deliver more power with a six or eight-cylinder engine. This power means more capability, which is why you’ll find popular midsize SUVs like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota 4Runner off the pavement and on the trail. Of course, if light off-roading is off your radar, then you can still enjoy everything the midsize class has to offer in models like the Honda Passport and Hyundai Santa Fe.


Full-size SUVs are as big as it gets in the SUV market and includes models like the GMC Yukon, Chevy Suburban, and Ford Expedition. Built on a truck chassis, full-size SUVs are powerful road beasts that are less fuel-efficient than their smaller counterparts but make up for it with their capability. If you’re looking for an SUV that handles like a truck and can tow and haul heavy loads, then a full-size SUV will serve you well with its beefy engine, spacious interior, and impressive ability to handle whatever the road throws its way.

One of the biggest factors to consider when shopping for a used SUV is efficiency, and that’s where we find that hybrid SUVs are becoming increasingly popular. If you want to take full advantage of the spaciousness of an SUV but aren’t thrilled by the fuel economy, then a hybrid is an outstanding option. Utilizing an electric motor and gasoline engine, a hybrid SUV maximizes efficiency by allowing the motors to work separately or together to reduce the amount of fuel needed. This translates to a better fuel economy and long-term savings that make up for the typically higher cost of a hybrid model.

Quick Glance: Popular SUVs

What’s the best SUV for you? Let’s consider some of the most popular SUVs on the road. If you’re in the market for a compact SUV, top-sellers like the Honda CR-V, Jeep Cherokee, and Toyota RAV4 are great options that carry the reliability of each brand, are spacious, efficient, and ideal for pavement driving. But perhaps you have more in mind when it comes to your time behind the wheel and, if that’s the case, then you’ll want to check out midsize SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. These models are known for their off-road capability, which means they’ll easily take you from your workweek to your weekend on the trail.

At the opposite ends of the spectrum are full-size and hybrid SUVs. Sometimes, you can’t escape the need for space and capability, which is where full-size SUVs like the Ford Expedition, Chevy Suburban, and Chevy Tahoe shine. These models are practical options that maximize the interior cabin to comfortably haul passengers and cargo while also delivering the performance and capability of a truck. On the other end of the spectrum are hybrid SUVs like the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, Toyota Highlander Hybrid, and the Honda CR-V Hybrid. These SUVs span the spectrum of compact crossovers to midsize options that deliver exceptional fuel economies as well as loads of features and conveniences of traditional, gas-powered SUVs.
