Commercial vehicles have come a long way from the stripped-down boxes of decades past. People commonly use heavy-duty trucks as everyday vehicles, and automakers have responded by making them more luxurious and refined every year.

The vehicle is capable of towing and hauling heavy loads and offers a degree of sophistication and comfort that its rivals can’t match.
