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.
Cadillac might be preparing to release a slew of new models over the next few years, but its flagship Escalade SUV isn’t going anywhere. In fact, Cadillac has completely redesigned the Escalade for the 2021 model year, bringing the brand’s best-known vehicle into the future alongside its all-new siblings. Learn more about the 2021 Cadillac Escalade and why it’s the perfect luxury SUV for your family.
The Hottest Tech
The 2021 Cadillac Escalade comes with a full load of the latest technology features. The available Cadillac Super Cruise™ turns your Escalade into a semi-autonomous vehicle when you drive on compatible highways. An industry-first curved OLED screen displays your driver info and infotainment clearly and without creating a distraction. The available Rear Seat Entertainment system will keep children occupied on long road trips, leaving you to focus on getting there safely.
A Comfortable Interior
The Escalade has always offered driver and passengers the best in comfort, and the 2021 model is no different. An available panoramic power sunroof opens the Escalade and provides an unparalleled view of the outside across all three rows. An automatic heated steering wheel as well as heated front-row and outboard second-row seats ensure you will stay toasty and warm, even on the coldest winter day. Soft leatherette seat trim is standard, but leather is available on higher trim levels.
You can place your order for the 2021 Cadillac Escalade at Wilson Cadillac in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
If you’re a young driver looking for a new vehicle, it’s important to select a model that suits your wants, needs and developing skillset. The Terrain and Canyon are two GMC models that are great options for new drivers, coming with useful safety tools and affordable price tags.
2020 GMC Terrain
The 2020 GMC Terrain is a suitable choice, thanks to its efficiency, power and safety. Safety tools, like Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking and the Following Distance Indicator, help prevent common mistakes made by young drivers. The SUV’s 1.5-liter Turbocharged engine also gets an EPA-estimated 30 mpg on the highway, saving you time and money at the gas station.*
2020 GMC Canyon
This pickup truck sports a smaller size that makes it easier to maneuver than larger GMC trucks. The 2020 GMC Canyon also achieves 30 mpg on the highway with its 2.8-liter Turbo Diesel engine.** Available safety features, like Rear Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, along with the convenient Trailer Sway Control give you the confidence to travel with and without a trailer.

There are a lot of choices out there when it comes to an SUV for your young family. Here are a few features that make the 2021 Cadillac XT6 the perfect choice for you and your kids.
A Spacious Interior.
Kids might be physically small, but they come with a lot of stuff. Car seats are often bulky and take up most of the back row, and a trip out usually requires diaper bags, strollers, and snacks. The Cadillac XT6 has seating for up to seven passengers across three rows and a maximum cargo space of 78.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded. That’s a lot of room for all of your necessities.
Technology has come a long way from the boring road trips of your childhood. The 2021 Cadillac XT6 comes with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capability, so you can connect your compatible smartphone and play your kids’ favorite playlists to keep them happy on the road.
Advanced Safety Features.
Noisy kids can be a huge distraction when you’re driving. Luckily, the 2021 Cadillac XT6 has your back with several advanced safety features. Forward Collision Alert can warn you if there’s a possible front-end collision.* Front Pedestrian Braking keeps an eye out for pedestrians at less than 50 mph and alerts you if it detects a person in your path.*
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning is your best friend when you’re on the highway with crying kids causing you to drift out of your marked lane.* These and more safety features help you be safer on the road, with or without your children in tow.
The 2021 Cadillac XT6 is available now at Wilson Cadillac in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Check it out in our inventory online to see if it’s a perfect match for your family.
*Safety or driver assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather, and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle’s owner’s manual for more important feature limitations and information.
The J.D. Power 2020 APEAL StudySM aims to measure how emotionally attached owners are to their vehicles and then scores the vehicles accordingly. Among all mass-market brands in the survey, GMC had the third-highest ranking.
GMC surpassed major competitors in the survey, showing that owners felt more attached to their new GMC models than to other models. In addition, the GMC Sierra HD earned a high ranking in its segment, and it’s easy to see why.
For the 2020 model year, this capable heavy-duty truck can tow up to 35,500 pounds when properly equipped. It can also carry a maximum payload of 7,442 pounds. As such, you can bring your trailer, tools and necessary supplies on each trip in this truck.
Inside the cabin, there’s plenty of legroom for you and your passengers along with intuitive connective technologies. The available ProGrade™ Trailering System also includes an in-vehicle app that provides maintenance reminders, step-by-step checklists and the trailer lighting sequence test to make trailering more convenient.
