Deciding Which Used SUV Style is Right for You at Auto Smart

If you’re looking for a high-quality pre-owned SUV then you just need to take a short drive east of Dallas, TX, to one of our Auto Smart lots to find exactly what you’re looking for – no matter what kind of used SUV you’re looking for. And that’s the big question, isn’t it? What kind of pre-owned SUV are you looking for? A 2-row SUV? Or maybe a 3-row SUV? It all depends on what you need your used SUV to be able to handle. So, let’s get right down to it and figure out how to decide which used SUV style is right for you here at Auto Smart of northeast Texas.


Listing the Differences Between Used 2- and 3-Row SUVs Here at Auto Smart in Longview, Texarkana, and Tyler TXrear cargo area in a used Ford Expedition with all seats down

Let’s get the most obvious difference out of the way first – 3-row used SUVs feature more total interior volume than 2-row used SUVs. And, in terms of passenger space when all of your seats are in their upright position, 3-row used SUVs feature more than their 2-row used SUV counter parts. But it’s the 2-row used SUVs that feature more cargo space when all seats are in their upright position – because they have a larger cargo area thanks to not having a third row of seats. Granted, if you’re folding all of your rear seats down, you’re probably going to have more total cargo room with a 3-row used SUV. So, it’s up to you to decide what you need. If you only need seating for five and want a heaping helping of standard cargo room (as in, cargo room when all your seats are in place), then you’re going to want a 2-row pre-owned SUV. If you need seating for up to eight but don’t need as much standard cargo room, then a 3-row pre-owned is right for you – as is also the case if you need a pre-owned SUV that’s ready to transform itself to meet whatever needs you have that day, as 3-row SUVs can easily fold any of their rows down to meet your space requirements.
