If you’re searching for a new-to-you vehicle, knowing what you can afford is vital. Although a high-end car might seem out of reach, you can actually get more for your money when you opt for a used luxury vehicle instead of a new one.
Pay less for more.
While having the most recent luxury vehicle might be
appealing, going for a pre-owned car or SUV that’s only a year or two older can
save you a lot of money. Not to mention, you may be able to afford a higher
trim of a used luxury vehicle than of a brand-new car. That means you can get
more top-level features and lavish amenities for less.
If you’re considering settling for a new mid-level car
instead of a luxury vehicle — don’t. You can get much more comfort
and convenience in the cabin of a used luxury car than in most cheaper models.
Imagine sitting on heated and cooling leather seats with a massage function
while your music plays on the top-notch speakers of a Bose® premium audio
system. Now imagine sitting on cloth seats that don’t have power-adjustable
settings or lumbar support while a song rattles through the plastic speakers.
If you’re in the market for a used GMC, then you may already know that GMC makes for one of the best used car brands. But what vehicles in the automaker’s lineup make for the best used GMC models? Consider the GMC Acadia and Sierra 1500.
If you need a used vehicle for the family, there’s no better
pick than the GMC Acadia SUV. There’s a lot of reason to love older Acadia
models, such as the 2011-2014 models that have all earned a five-star overall
safety rating in government crash testing. The 2011-2013 models even
supplemented this with a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety. Thanks to the Denali trim, which was introduced in 2011 for the
Acadia, buying used doesn’t mean you have to miss out on premium features.
GMC Sierra 1500
As a hardworking pickup truck, the GMC Sierra 1500 is built from the ground up to be as dependable and reliable as possible, making it an excellent used purchase. That’s made even better by the fact that the Sierra 1500 ranks among the top vehicles in the country for resale value. If you sell the Sierra 1500 later on, you could get back a lot more of your hard-earned money than if you had gotten a used vehicle from a less reputable brand.
Buick has always represented the pinnacle of attainable luxury, but the all-new Envision manages to raise the bar even higher. We all knew it was a seriously sharp SUV even before it hit the streets of Stillwater, Oklahoma, but Autotrader recently reaffirmed this idea when it named the 2021 Buick Envision to its list of Best Interiors Under $50,000.
If you’ve ever seen a picture of the new Envision cabin, you
know it’s sleek, stylish, and striking. The dash flows seamlessly from left to
right, interrupted only by the stunning available 10.2-inch touch-screen
The appointments are as luxurious as they are eye-catching,
with optional heated and ventilated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering
wheel, an ambient lighting system, and more. Plus, standard Buick QuietTuning™
with Active Noise Cancellation can clear the cacophony from your commute.
These refinements were not lost on Autotrader writer Eric
Brandt. When discussing the stylish Envision, they said, “A redesign for 2021 has
repositioned the Envision to compete with class leaders while undercutting them
on price. Step inside the new Envision and you might think you’ve entered a
more expensive European luxury crossover.”
The editors at Cars.com evaluated 2021 models to find the most luxurious and well-rounded vehicles in each segment. Thanks to its eye-catching design, powerful performance, and impressive technologies, the all-new 2021 Cadillac Escalade took home the title of Luxury Car of the Year.
The 2021 Escalade offers two
spirited engine options: the 277-horsepower 3.0-liter Turbo Diesel and the
420-horsepower 6.2-liter V8. Available Adaptive Air Ride suspension and
Magnetic Ride Control also work to create a smooth ride, according to Cars.com.
Nevertheless, what makes the
Escalade stand out the most from competitors is its interior. Every seat has
more than enough room for everyone to be comfortable and is available with
high-quality leather trim. The editors noted that the redesigned second row
even makes it easier for your passengers to access the third row.
The editors were particularly
drawn to the industry-first, 38-inch curved OLED display. This display makes it
easy to control your music, get navigation information, and use other features.
Plus, the SUV’s available AKG™ Studio Reference 36-speaker audio system
provides incredible sound quality throughout the cabin.
