Forget the SUV, Trucks Are the New Family Car

Posted on Jun 15 2017 - 7:10am by admin

If you currently have a sports car but have a baby on the way, then some important decisions need to be made before the baby’s arrival. One of the most important one is what car will you now get? Having a family means a family vehicle, right? But before you head down to get a minivan, have a think about getting a truck first. It might not be the first thing that comes into your head when you think of a family vehicle, but there are some makes and models that would do the job just fine. I know, I know, it’s not quite a Porsche. But you’ll have plenty of room for all of the accessories and baby things that will need to go in the car.

If you’re looking for all of the comfort and luxury that comes with a sedan, then look no further than the Ford F150 Supercrew. The added bonus is that you’ll have the ground clearance and utility to get into more places than a standard sedan would. The fuel efficiency of the Supercrew is exceptional, meaning that it isn’t going to be costing you a fortune to run. And with many trips in the car with children, you’ll want it to cost a little as possible. If you’re wondering how to get the stroller and baby things in the back of the truck, then you could always look into getting a tonneau cover, if you want it to be covered up. Then it means you can store lots in the back, and the seating areas can be kept (relatively) tidy and organized.

Chevy Silverado

If you would like to have a high-tech car, then the Chevy Silverado is for you. Onboard Wifi anyone? With that and mobile apps, your road trips will never be the same again (which you’ll be thankful for when the kids are old enough to have their own tablet in the car). There are rear cameras to help you reverse and park, as well as the car’s legendary performance and handling. For active and busy families, this is a must!

Toyota Tundra

Many previous owners of a Toyota Tundra swear by how comfortable the vehicle is. With plenty of headroom, it could be a vehicle that you keep for quite a while as the children are growing. Previous owners have also mentioned it’s reliability and performance, which is perfect when you’re going to be driving around with children. A car breaking down is no fun at any time, but especially not fun with children sat in the car! The car is pretty fuel efficient, as far as trucks go anyway, and has a brilliant off-road experience.

If finances allow, then you could always keep your sports car for weekends or the commute. But a family vehicle is a must. Hopefully, one of these three trucks might just tip the scales for you. Take them for a test ride and see if they work for you. Good luck!
