A panel truck is a windowless cargo van built on a truck chassis.Similar in function to its smaller cousin, the sedan delivery; which is a station wagon with no backseat, and no side windows aft of the front doors.
Both types of vehicles are frequently used as delivery vehicles. Panel trucks are often used by construction and maintenance contractors and were sometimes configured for ambulance and hearse roles. Other variations include Canopy express models, which have open display areas behind the driver's seat primarily used by farmers for selling fruits and vegetables.The evolution of sport utility vehicles can be traced to panel trucks, as the Chevrolet Suburban and GMC Yukon, as well as the International Harvester Travelall were passenger versions of these trucks. In modern times minivans have been adapted to some of thes[[Chevrolet Suburban|]]e functions. Both the Chrysler PT Cruiser and the Chevrolet HHR panel were inspired by the Chevrolet Suburban panel truck. Although the HHR is a compact crossover utility vehicle, instead of a fullsize truck like the suburban.
