The Difference Between SUVs and Crossovers Explained

 

When you're shopping for a vehicle here at MotorWorld Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, you know that you'll be able to find the kind of body style you're looking for. That's especially true if you're in the market for a new SUV or crossover. These terms are used interchangeably sometimes, but you should know that there are actually some big differences between these types of vehicles.

The primary difference is the platform: a crossover is built on a platform that could also be used to build a car. This is why many people tend to think of smaller vehicles as crossovers, but larger models can also be classified as crossovers. That's because it's all about how the vehicle is built. A crossover uses a “unibody” construction, which means that the body and frame are built together. This creates a safer vehicle as well, since a unibody construction also creates crumple zones that can better protect occupants in the event of an accident.

An SUV is built on a platform that could also be used by a truck. It uses a “body on frame” construction, which means that the body and frame are built separately and then combined later. This results in a vehicle that's a bit more durable and suited to some tough tasks. An SUV like the 2018 Jeep Wrangler, for example, is ideal for off-road conditions and even towing.

Crossovers and SUVs both have their uses. Whether you're up for an outdoor adventure or you're looking for a great family vehicle, we have an option that you'll appreciate here on our lot.
