You'll want to buckle up

In an American film titled the Family Man, Jack hopped in a car, and the driver told him, "You'll want to buckle up".

Why didn't the driver say "please buckle up" but the long sentence as above? Is it the way that most native speakers would say?

Thanks!

    The meaning is completely different. The driver isn't asking him to buckle up. He's telling him that the ride in the car will necessitate buckling up because he's going to be driving very fast. There's a little bit of humor in the way he is saying it.
