BMW X5

Used BMW X5

By the start of the new millennium, the SUV segment had shifted from rugged off road beasts to a more car-like Crossover appeal that featured unibody construction. The X5 marks BMW's entry into the segment, and what a debut it was. Sporting the best in all features that define a crossover (handling, comfort, luxury), the BMW X5 became a top seller in Allentown and Bethlehem.

Engine

The BMW X5 is available in a variety of engine choices and drive train configurations, with the model numbers signifying engine capacity. The basic engine is a 3 liter 6 cylinder engine which is able to produce an incredible 300hp and the same amount of torque thanks to turbo-charging. Something that is unique to the X5 is the diesel powered variant, which isn't usually offered by most manufacturers. The diesel version produces a lower 255hp but offers much more torque at 413 pounds. This makes the latter better at handling and grip on the roads of Allentown and Bethlehem.

Besides the fuel type, there are also other choices such as a turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 that can crank out a mindboggling 450hp along with 479 pounds of torque. Considering that the much larger Nissan Armada produces a relatively lesser amount of hp, you can imagine how high the X5's power to weight ratio is. Even though there are numerous engine choices, transmission is limited to an eight speed automatic.

Exterior

The BMW X5 has always been packaged in a classy exterior with its traditional square taillights and slightly protruding back bumpers.

If you are going for a pre-2014 used BMW X5, you may notice the subtle changes in that and the previous models. These include the fixture of headlamps into the front grille, along with a slightly higher ground clearance.

Features

The standard highlights of the base 35i and d include xenon headlamps, electronically controlled lift gate, vinyl themed interior, temperature controlled seats, a huge 10 inch display, GPS navigation and a fully fledged audio system sporting 9 speakers. Upgrading to the xDrive50i gets you leather stitched upholstery, cruise control, better audio system, DVD entertainment and a slew of safety features.

If you are considering a used BMW X5 in Allentown or Bethlehem, make sure to have a look at Kelly Risk Free's inventory, where we regularly feature popular models at amazing prices.

Used Cadillac CTS

Cadillac CTS

Though there are other sedan offerings by the American based manufacturer, the CTS is perhaps the most famous in Allentown and Bethlehem. Traditionally larger than competing sedans in the segment, the CTS has always had an edge in terms of handling and driving elements. In fact, the CTS is often seen as the only true luxury/performance based manufactured in Northern America. If you are in the market for a used luxury sedan, the CTS should be your top choice.

Engine

The Cadillac CTS sports a choice of 2 V6 engines. The standard is a 3 liter V6 that cranks out about 270hp, while the higher capacity 3.6 liter generates an amazing 318 horses under the hood. You may choose from a choice of six speed manual or automatic transmission, along with a RWD or AWD power train.

Though the power output may seem nominal for a performance oriented midsized sedan, it takes a test drive to truly appreciate the driving prowess of the Cadillac CTS on the tracks of Allentown and Bethlehem.

Exterior

Though other Cadillac models off the assembly line sported a more classic vintage appeal, the new CTS goes all out in its futuristic exterior design. Coupled with its sharp lines, angular headlamps and sleek shape, the CTS is truly a sight to behold on the roads of Allentown and Bethlehem. Though older used Cadillac CTS models are usually found in the sedan body style, newer models are also available in a coupe and wagon variant. You can select from any of these body styles at Kelly Risk Free.

Features

Perhaps the most impressive highlights of the CTS are the upgraded interior elements and build quality. Standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, wooden trims, ABS, airbags and a slew of other safety equipment. However, you may also find additional features in used Cadillac CTS models at Kelly Risk Free, including GPS navigation, fully fledged audio systems and even leather stitched interior seats. Some of the used Cadillac CTS models also feature a sports suspension, further improving the handling.

If you are interested in purchasing a used Cadillac CTS, make sure to have a look at Kelly Risk Free, where we regularly get used models of the CTS in excellent conditions and prices. Kelly Risk Free is your one stop shop for all popular used car models, serving Bethlehem and Allentown residents for years.

Jeep Patriot Sport

Jeep Patriot

Jeep has always been distinguished by its boxy exterior design that is most evident in its Cherokee series. The Patriot is no different; however, it uses a mechanical platform similar to the Dodge Caliber plus extended climb angles and low range gearing, making it one of the better off road vehicles in Allentown and Bethlehem, especially considering the low price that it's available in.

Engine

The Patriot is powered by a 2 liter engine that provides it with a nominal 158hp on the 4WD transmission. While that may seem quite insufficient for off road adventuring, you may also choose to go for a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder that cranks out an ample 172horses. Transmission choices range from a five speed manual to a CVT, with 4WD drive-train as standard.

What the Patriot lacks in power, it makes up for in traction and gear ratios. In fact, the Jeep Patriot may be the best handling off road vehicle in Allentown and Bethlehem.

Exterior

The Jeep Patriot has always been packaged in a boxy style similar to other offerings on Jeep's assembly lines. Though the squared shape Patriot may not seem like the most aerodynamic vehicle on the roads of Allentown and Bethlehem, the design definitely allows it to conquer off road terrains with relative ease. We do have one complaint with the ground clearance, which was significantly better in previous used Jeep Patriot models. Even so, the off roader is able to clear most obstacles in its way. Pure off road enthusiasts, however, should have a look at older used Jeep Patriot models that are available at Kelly Risk Free.

Features

Jeep models usually come in three trim levels; Sport, Latitude and Limited. The Patriot is no different, with the Sport model being the basic and least priced of the three. Standard features include airbags, ABS, air conditioning and a slew of other safety equipment.

There are also used Jeep Patriot models available in a variety of packages, such as the Freedom 2 Drive, which adds up on off road gear such as upgraded terrain tires, hill descent control, tow hooks, a full sized spare tire and upgraded skid plates. If you are interested in getting one for yourself in Allentown or Bethlehem, make sure to have a look at Kelly Risk Free's inventory, where we regularly feature used Jeep Patriot models at incredible prices.

Pre-Owned Kia Optima

KIA Optima

The KIA Optima has always been seen as a second alternative as compared to the numerous Japanese offerings in the segment. This was due to a combination of lower brand reputation and resale value, along with scarcity of spare parts. With time however, the KIA Optima has made significant advances in all these factors, today being the prime choice for a midsized sedan in Allentown and Bethlehem. If you are looking for a used KIA Optima, we would recommend getting one manufactured after 2012 due to better build quality and upgraded interior elements.

Engine

The Optima gets its power from a standard 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine that produces 200hp along with 186 pounds of torque. This amount of engine power is a first for KIA, which usually keeps its models below the 180hp threshold to fit its economical image. But this is just the start, as KIA also offers the Optima in a 2 liter 4 cylinder turbocharged package that can produce an astounding 274hp along with 269 pounds of torque. This makes it one of the fastest cars on the race tracks of Allentown and Bethlehem, even though the Optima's previous versions were never aimed at high performance.

If you would like to stick with economy, you may also choose a 4 cylinder gasoline coupled with an electric motor in the Hybrid version. The hybrid provides 206hp with a six speed automatic transmission as standard.

Exterior

Even though the Optima is very similar mechanically to the Hyundai Sonata, you cannot tell the difference just by looking. The KIA feels like a much expensive car than its price tag would suggest, as the manufacturer has put up loads of work in refining the boxy curved design to a sharper looking sedan.

Features

The standard trim i.e. LX includes features such as alloys, power windows/mirrors, air conditioning, adjustable steering column, satellite radio and even a CD deck with satellite radio. The upgraded EX trim adds up on the features list with climate control, leather stitched interior equipment and keyless entry. The cream of the crop i.e. the SX features sports suspension with other styling changes.

Some of the used KIA Optima models at Kelly Risk Free may also include a GPS navigation system. If you are looking for a used KIA Optima, make sure to stop by Kelly Risk Free.

Nissan Juke

Nissan Juke

Though there are plenty of offerings in the crossover SUV segment today, the Nissan Juke seems to be the most different. As a cross between a hatchback and a SUV, the Juke has earned a huge fan base in North America, especially in Allentown and Bethlehem. This is why a used Nissan Juke comes as a natural choice when searching for a practical compact SUV.

Engine

The Nissan Juke is powered by a 1.6 liter 4 cylinder engine, which may seem quite nominal until you consider it's turbocharged, bringing its horsepower output to 188hp along with 177 pounds of torque. If that seems insufficient, you may also opt for the Nismo, whose tweaked engine is able to produce even more power at 197hp with 184 pounds of torque. You may select from either a six speed manual or CVT transmission. Most of the used Nissan Juke models at Kelly Risk Free are equipped with an All Wheel Drive power train which performs exceptionally well through the frequent rainstorms that Allentown and Bethlehem are visited by.

Exterior

The exterior styling of the Nissan Juke is perhaps its most controversial element. Featuring bulging headlamps that give off the appearance of a wild frog, the design is a make or break deal; you"d either love it or hate it. We personally love the unique path that Nissan's designers have opted to go for as it makes the Juke a truly unique sight on the roads of Allentown and Bethlehem.

Features

There's a choice of 4 trim levels available; the basic S version, upgraded SV/SL and the sports themed Nismo. Standard features on the S are 17 inch wheels, power windows/mirrors, automated cruise control, air conditioning, adjustable steering column, Bluetooth connectivity and a fully fledged six speaker audio system. Upgrading to the SV takes it up a notch with sunroof, keyless start and driver memory settings dubbed the "I-con".

If you choose to go for the Nismo, you'll be treated with a longer wheel base equipped with weather tires, additional styling details and even sports seats. Some of the used Nissan Juke models at Kelly Risk Free also feature GPS, parking cameras and upgraded audio systems with touch screen display. When choosing a used Nissan Juke, make sure to visit Kelly Risk Free, where we put up plenty of used Nissan Juke models for sale at excellent prices.
