What is the difference between AWD vs. 4×4? 

Modern automobiles are more reliable and higher performing than ever before. That also means modern cars, trucks and SUVs are also more complex than ever before. There is a lot to know and one of the most confusing concepts facing buyers is understanding all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive. So, what is the difference between AWD vs. 4×4? On the surface, these systems perform similar functions, but each one is designed for different purposes. It is pretty easy to get in the weeds of engineering terms when explaining how these things work. Our team found a couple of videos that do a good job making the information as accessible as possible. If you have any questions about the capabilities of any vehicle available at any vehicle at any of our locations, please make an appointment with your nearest Third Coast Auto Group product expert today.  (more…)

Midsize Pickup Truck vs. 3-Row Midsize SUV 

Because of advances in automotive technology, midsize pickup trucks can deliver incredible performance and capability, while three-row midsize SUVs can offer comparable towing capacity in addition to spacious interiors. You would be surprised by the number of people who come to a Third Coast Auto Group showroom asking about the differences in convenience and usability in a midsize pickup truck vs. 3-row midsize SUV. Several automakers offer both platforms and, depending on the model year a buyer chooses, it could be outfitted with some really innovative technology. Of course, an SUV is more passenger-friendly, but a pickup has obvious advantages of ownership in its own right. These videos from KelleyBlueBook.com might be helpful in your search.
