    Off-Road Vehicles for Adventures – Great Options by Popular Brands

    At Walker Chevrolet, we sell the latest off-road trucks and SUVs for Nashville area drivers. With an off-road vehicle, you can explore Murfreesboro, TN, and beyond like an adventurer. If you’d like to buy one for your next adventure, stop by our dealership in Franklin, TN.

    Off-Road Trucks – How to Weigh the Options

    Most automakers have a flagship truck with signature features. This vehicle may or may not have off-road features to help you explore Spring Hill, TN. For Chevrolet, it is the iconic Chevy Silverado 1500. To pick the best truck, you’ll need to consider its purpose.

    The Cab Styles and The Purpose

    The standard cabin is great for solo adventures in the great outdoors of Brentwood, TN. It’s the smallest cabin style, so it doesn’t have extra windows or doors like other cabs. The following trucks have a standard cab:

    • The Ford F-150
    • The GMC Sierra
    • The Ram 1500
    • The Chevy Silverado
    • n extended cab will give you more space for cargo. It’s a bit larger than a regular cab, so there is more real estate behind the front seats. GMC and Chevy are the only brands that use the term extended cab. Ford’s calls an extended cab a SuperCab, Ram has Club Cabs, Nissan has King Cabs, and Toyota sells Access Cabs.

      A Crew Cab is the largest option. It comes with premium features like full-sized benches, four doors, and seating for up to six passengers. Some brands even make Crew Cabs with a flip-down rear seat. It can maximize space for cargo. The definition of a Crew Cab will vary by brand, but you can learn more at our dealer. We sell Quad Crews by Dodge and Ram, Super Crews by Ford, and Double Cabs by Toyota.

      Popular Off-Road Tires for Trucks and SUVs

      The right tires will help you get the most out of your off-road vehicle. Here are three options to consider.

      All-Terrain Tires

      All-terrain tires will perform well on the open road and beyond. They can even handle ice and snow. These tires are great for off-roading because

      • They have open treads that enhance traction on unpaved paths.
      • They have extra-strong, reinforced sidewalls.
      • Their soft, flexible rubber trends provide a better grip on the road.

      Mud-Terrain Tires

      Mud tires can power through sloppy obstacles better than regular tires. They will never spin in place in thick mud because they have a special trend pattern that maximizes traction. These tires are very durable because they have extra reinforced sidewalls.

      Rock Tires

      Rock tires are the toughest tires. They’ll roll over sharp rocks effortlessly without puncturing. If you’re going to explore mountain ranges, we highly recommend these tires and a powerful off-road vehicle by Jeep.

      The Benefits of Buying an Off-Road Truck

      An off-road truck has big tires. They will dominate most obstacles in off-road environments. Also, big tires provide better ground clearance. This is a necessity in the great outdoors.


      Off-road trucks have a specialized off-road suspension system. This type of system reduces bounce and shock on very rough terrain. In addition, some automakers offer off-road packages that make their suspension systems even better.

      The Benefits of Buying an SUV with Off-Road Features

      A 4×4 can reach more areas than a truck because it has a more refined design. A 4×4’s base is wider, and its engine sends power to all four wheels, and a truck is heavy in the front and lighter in the back. As a result, it’s easier to climb up hills and over obstacles in a 4×4.

      A 4×4 gives you a better view of your surroundings, giving you more time to prepare for road hazards.

    • Some 4x4s can switch from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive.
