These factory-fitted pickups and SUVs have 1 major advantage

Why would anyone buy a factory fitted pickup truck or SUV? There doesn’t seem to be a good reason not to. One of the significant benefits of buying a pickup or lifted SUV from the factory is that the new car warranty covers it. Also, it’s a bit easier to just order an already lifted vehicle and be on your way.

For factory-lifted trucks and SUVs, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk has the most lift

Kelley Blue Book recently went over the ins and outs of factory lifted trucks. Did you know the 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk has 2.9 inches of lift compared to the standard Grand Cherokee? It is the highest factory lift among all trucks. The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk will set you back $38,390, just $3,495 more than the standard version.

The 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor gets a 2.6-inch rise (when equipped with 35-inch tires) over the standard F-150. Ford’s Raptor also gets upgraded suspension and plenty of other features for the $70,555 price tag. Your everyday 2022 Ford F-150 XL starts at $31,520, which is a big difference for 2.6 inches of lift.

Buying one of these factory-fitted pickups and SUVs might cost a bit more up front, but hopefully the warranty will cover any minor issues that come up.

For those who want a 2022 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, this will give buyers an extra 1.5 inches up front and 0.5 inches in the rear over the standard Tacoma. People love the Tacoma, and the extra lift is just a side benefit for this pickup.

People love the 2022 Ford Ranger Tremor, and it happens to be a factory-lifted truck. The Tremor gets 0.8 inches less lift than the standard Ranger. Still, it offers more clearance than a regular pickup for anything you might need.

You don’t have to buy a factory-fitted truck or SUV, but that’s a good halfway point for some people. If you can install a lift yourself, that’s always an option. These are some of the pros and cons of buying a raised pickup truck, if you are going to be in the market soon.
