Olympia Auto Mall and SUVs: The Perfect Pair

The SUV market has grown wildly in the past decade with most manufacturers having at least one SUV in their line-up. The attraction of this type of vehicle comes in many forms. The ability to provide comfortable seating for the entire family as well as all their gear is a huge up side to an SUV. Many models offer convertible seating arrangements that allow for seats to be folded down to increase storage capacity.
Engine and drive train options are quite extensive, including 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive with power provided by means of gasoline and diesel engines, as well as hybrid models. The term SUV (sport utility vehicle) describes this genre perfectly. The ability to switch from hauling “stuff” around to taking the family on a hiking trip is what makes the SUV one of the most popular vehicle types on the market.
The best way to experience all that an SUV has to offer, is to view our online inventory, then make a trip to the Olympia Auto Mall and test drive a few of the many we have to offer so you can make an informed decision on which is the one for you. We look forward to seeing you soon.

SUVs and Crossovers

You can read quite a bit about SUVs and Crossover vehicles and think, what is the difference?  Technically, a Crossover is built on a car chassis while an SUV is built on a truck chassis. Many Crossovers are touted as an SUV which actually by definition, Sport Utility Vehicle is accurate. Both types of vehicles offer different advantages. The SUV typically can carry more payload; passengers and cargo plus have the capability of towing larger trailers such as boats and RVs. Crossovers generally are more sporty, nimble, and quite often attain better mileage.
Both types of vehicles are available in a hybrid configuration.  The range of available Crossovers and SUVs is amazing, both in size and in luxury options. You will not find a greater selection than at the Olympia Auto Mall. Come in and take a test drive and you will be able to choose which style works best for your needs; whether you are a single commuter that needs some extra space for sports gear or have a large family that needs seating for seven and all the “stuff” that goes along with them.

Lifted Trucks and SUVs

What is a lifted truck or SUV?

A lifted truck or SUV is a pickup truck or sport utility vehicle whose suspension has been modified to raise it up. This is typically done to increase clearance and performance, especially for off-road use.

There are type types of lifts – Body Lifts and Suspension Lifts

Body Lifts

Body lifts are the more economical approach to modifying your truck or SUV. These lifts do not change the ride of the vehicle, they simply give the tires more clearance for off-roading. While the factory suspension and alignment remains intact. The biggest downside to the body lift is that the frame of the vehicle is more visible.

Suspension Lifts

Unlike a body lift which can only raise the body 1-3 inches, a suspension lift can go as high as the driver wants. This type of lift makes the suspension more articulate and allows the owner to purchase larger tires if desired. The downside of a suspension lift is the expense, both in the initial effort to lift the suspension as well as in the maintenance. In addition, while larger tires can be purchased and often are, the oversized tires and high profile lead to poor gas mileage.

Expert advice on Lifted Trucks

If you are considering purchasing a truck and/or lifting your existing truck or SUV, check with an expert on the best way to proceed for your particular use. Learn from South Sound Trucks all the pros and cons, and everything you should consider when making these modifications. You can find South Sound Trucks at the Olympia Auto Mall, a convenient location for new and used vehicles, maintenance, service, and truck lifts.
