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.

Buying a brand-new vehicle can be a costly experience. Whether you don’t have it in your budget or you just want to save some cash for a family vacation, buying used is an excellent alternative. From its many years of reliability to its high-quality features within its vehicles, a used Cadillac is a great option for several reasons.
Premium Quality At An Affordable Price.
Each year, Cadillac releases new vehicles made from high-quality materials and components. As a result, many Cadillac models can last for 100,000 miles or more. On a used Cadillac, you may find premium features, like leather and heated seating, a Bose® sound system, smartphone integration capability, a power liftgate, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and much more — without that brand-new price tag.
Lower And Fewer Monthly Payments.
When you purchase a new vehicle, you have to provide a down payment to secure it. If you can’t pay the car’s price in full, you must then get a loan and pay that off in monthly installments for a certain number of years. These monthly payments can potentially be quite expensive without a trade-in vehicle. But, if you buy used, your monthly payments may decrease dramatically. Not to mention, the length of your loan may be much shorter.
If you have a young driver in your family, you want to make sure they are driving something reliable that doesn’t break your budget. Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Consumer Reports named 2016 and newer Buick Encore models safe for teens while still being budget-friendly.
The IIHS and CR come together each year to create a list of safe
and affordable pre-owned vehicles for new drivers. The vehicles on this list are
divided into “best choice” and “good choice” options in different segments.
The 2016 and newer Buick Encore earned the higher “best
choice” ranking. In order to receive this recognition, the Encore had to have “good”
ratings in four IIHS crash tests and an “acceptable” or “good” rating in the
driver-side small overlap front test. It also needed to perform well in NHTSA
Beyond its reliable design and wealth of safety technologies
available, the Encore is an excellent choice for your teen, thanks to its
well-appointed interior. Whether your teen is cruising around Stillwater,
Oklahoma, or driving to and from college, they’ll appreciate the SUV’s
comfortable interior, spacious layout, and advanced connectivity options.
If your teen is ready for the first vehicle, consider purchasing a used Buick Encore. You can learn more about this SUV and your financing options when you call us at Wilson Buick GMC.
