Truck or SUV?

The subject of a new (or new to us) vehicle has been a hot topic in our home lately. We currently have two vehicles; a 4 door sedan & Chris' Ford Mustang is a project car and also his daily driver.

I love my car; it's perfect for driving the kids back and forth to school and we all fit in it comfortably on a day to day basis. Road trips, however, can get a bit tight and we don't have any extra room for friends or family. Once Chris is done with his car it will probably become strictly a track car for racing. We already know that we want to add to our family in the not too distant future. So - with his car on the track and my car seating only four - We need something bigger.

We've been shopping around for a few months and I think we've finally got it narrowed down! Chris and I both want a truck; we've both owned Chevy trucks in the past and loved them. However, I can't stop drooling over the Ford F250! We've also had our eyes on a few SUVs. While I'd love to have a truck for towing and hauling - I just can't get over the idea of having all the glorious space that an SUV offers. To me, a 3rd row seat sounds like Heaven!
So here are the vehicles that have made our short list:
I have no idea which way we'll end up going. My last two vehicles (before my current car) were Ford - and they were fantastic. However, I loved my Chevy too! I've always loved Jeeps and Chris really loves the Acadia!
So, what I want to know is this - which would you choose?
What do you drive and what do you love or hate about it?

  1. I'd totally go for the Ford Explorer. I'm a bit of a Ford girl; I'm hoping my next vehicle will be a Ford Escape... but probably not because it's just a bit on the small side for us right now. Currently, I drive a Grand Caravan. The only thing that I don't like about it is that it's just plain getting old and will need to be replaced in a couple more years.

    1. Oh I LOVE the caravan! I had one for a rental a few years back and I loved it so much I wrote about it on this blog! :)

      I'm a bit of a Ford girl myself - I had a Ford Fusion and then a Ford Edge. The Explorer is sooo nice and I love the added luxury that you get with a Ford! I bet it will be a last minute decision for us!

      Thanks for chiming in! :)

  2. I have a Dodge Neon, which does the job but it's definitely crowded when all four of us go to the store or on road trips. We're basically just driving our cars until they fall apart since they're paid off and we're trying to pay off other debt. I refuse to drive a minivan though so when we do get a newer vehicle, it'll likely be a small suv.
