Purchasing a used car is a great financial decision. Just because you need a new vehicle doesn’t mean you need to spend the money on a brand new car. It just needs to be new to you! Of course, the last thing you want is to get a vehicle and then be broken down on the side of the road in only a few months. When shopping for used cars, there are certain things you’ll want to keep an eye on in order to get the best vehicle. One of the most important things to pay attention to is the brand.
Some cars are just made better than others, plain and simple. Industry experts say that if you’re shopping for a vehicle with staying power, you want to buy a sport utility vehicle (SUV). Even better, purchase an American-made SUV. The top seven vehicles and eight of the top 11 on last year’s list of longest-lasting vehicles most likely to reach 200,000 or more miles are SUVs. Three are General Motors products, which means they have the GMC name brand.
A GMC dealership in Baton Rouge will have a wide selection of these long lasting vehicles. One of the top models and percentage of vehicles with over 200,000 miles is the GMC Yukon. That makes purchasing one of these pre-owned GMC cars a great buy.
It’s difficult to know the exact specs, capacities, and features of this SUV without visiting a GMC car dealership, because it gets periodic refreshes and additions. A 2021 GMC Yukon will look different and have features a 2010 GMC Yukon does not. That doesn’t mean a 2010 Yukon is a bad choice, of course. In fact, it’s priced significantly lower so many people feel the used option is the better buy!
When it comes to large, three-row family-hauling, powerful muscle, any year of the GMC Yukon is hard to beat. It has plenty of room inside its cabin, and it’s quite capable of bringing any toys and tools along for the drive. Some models have a gasoline V-8 engine while others have a turbo-diesel inline-six, both mated to an automatic transmission. The cabin is roomy and better equipped than other competitor’s models. The cargo space is impressive as well, making the GMC Yukon a great vehicle for family vacations, trips to Home Depot, tailgating parties, or simply going about your busy daily life.
Once you visit the GMC dealership in Baton Rouge, you’ll have a better idea as to which models are there. The Yukon is such a popular and long-lasting vehicle, they’re sure to have several to choose from. Beyond the Yukon, the GMC Acadia, GMC Terrain, and GMC Sierra are also bound to be there. You can trust a vehicle with the GMC nameplate to last for many years and many miles to come. If you want a used vehicle that won’t leave you on the side of the road or with an expensive repair bill, you’re looking for a GMC.
