Used Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Used Jeep Grand Cherokee is a five-passenger midsize SUV available in four trim levels. If your SUV requirements include a significant off-road ability, the Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is a great choice. There are three different four-wheel-drive systems (Quadra-Trac I, Quadra-Trac II and Quadra-Drive II) all providing superior off-road abilities, from low-grade dirt roads to camel country. If you need to tow, this Jeep's maximum towing capacity is a hefty 7,400 pounds.

Considering that the Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is an all-terrain beast, its road handling deportment is surprisingly good. Steering is precise and handling is solid; in off-road situations, the Jeep's advanced 4WD hardware earn it true mountain-goat status.

In 2009, the Jeep Grand Cherokee's 5.7-liter V8 got a power and fuel economy boost while the high-performance SRT8 model got an additional leather interior surface and a performance trip computer.

Jeep has worked hard to keep its Grand Cherokee up-to-date and upgrades to the available V8s have boosted power. Increases in available equipment and overall quality improvement made in this model year add up to a better Grand Cherokee.

The interior features a rich two-tone cabin and an LED-illuminated instrument cluster. For 2009, a leather appearance package added leather to the armrest, doors and the top of the instrument panel.

The Laredo trim comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, all-terrain tires, a roof rack, an eight-way power driver seat, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, a 60/40-split rear seatback, cruise control, a trip computer and a six-speaker stereo with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Options on the Laredo include a sunroof, a rear back-up camera with parking sensors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, power-adjustable pedals, a power passenger seat, heated front seats, remote ignition, leather upholstery, a universal garage door opener, Bluetooth, a navigation system, real-time traffic, an upgraded six-speaker stereo with satellite radio, an iPod interface and a hard drive for digital music storage.

The standard engine on the Used Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is a 3.7-liter V6 that makes 210 horsepower and 235 pound-feet of torque. Like every Grand Cherokee, the Laredo comes with a mandatory five-speed automatic transmission. Estimated fuel economy is 16 mpg city/21 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined with two-wheel drive (4x2) and 15/20/17 with four-wheel drive (4x4).  Four-wheel-drive Laredos come with the single-speed Quadra-Trac I system, which essentially functions as all-wheel drive.

Safety features include antilock disc brakes, stability control and standard side curtain airbags with a roll-detection system. The stability control system includes trailer sway control on Overland models; it's optional on the Laredo and Limited. The JGC earned a perfect five stars in all government front and side crash tests.

Dodge Charger

For the 2015 model year the Dodge Charger was enhanced with a redesigned interior, a new 7-inch customizable gauge cluster, a redesigned instrument cluster and a new electronic shifter. The Uconnect infotainment system -one of the best infotainment systems in the automotive industry -and an available 8.4-inch touch screen returned for the 2015 model year. The seats are comfortable and can handle long road trips with ease.

The interior fit and finish is really quite spectacular, with real metal accents, contrast stitching, and soft-touch plastics on all models. Passenger space is generous for five adults and features plenty of legroom and headroom. Trunk volume is unstinting at 16.5 cubic feet and can be expanded with the 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

On the outside, the hood, front doors, spoiler, taillights and front fascia were all redesigned for the 2015 model year. The new grille and headlights, which have been repositioned to help with engine airflow, are quick to catch the eye. This design element also gives the new Charger a low, aggressive stance, and the newly styled rear end continues to feature Dodge’s renowned “racetrack” taillights. LED daytime running lights, acoustic front glass and windshield, front and rear power windows with express front up/down, and a configurable, full color, 7-inch driver information display are all standard features on the 2015 Dodge Charger.

Even with its larger size and all that power, the 2015 Dodge Charger offers great street performance and handling especially when you consider its blazing acceleration. Refinement remains in very high quantity with a stable character, especially when equipped with all-wheel drive. (The 2015 Dodge is standard rear-drive; all-wheel drive is available only with the V-6 engine.)

The addition of the eight-speed automatic across the entire Charger lineup and the integration of cylinder deactivation in models with the 5.7-liter and 6.4-liter V-8s enhanced performance without sacrificing fuel efficiency.

The Charger brand has always been a bit more comfort-oriented, and this model is no exception. Ride quality isn’t compromised even in the performance models because of the suspension tuning being softened slightly. You will love the great balance of ride and handling and the spacious and well-appointed interior.

The NHTSA gave the 2015 Charger a five-star rollover safety rating (out of a possible five stars) while in IIHS evaluations, the car received a Good score on four categories (Good is the highest possible score).

To assure you of the best value for your dollar, come see our inventory and find out why Kelly was voted the best place to buy a used car in the Lehigh Valley!

Chrysler PT Cruiser

There are probably very few cars that have come around in the past 20 years as fun and stylish as the PT Cruiser! It has a devoted fan base and owners keep their vehicles in top-notch shape.

In 2006, the front and rear fascia’s were updated, including a new grille with a winged Chrysler badge and chrome accents; new headlamps with scalloped bottom edges, new round fog lamps, and a new spoiler on the rear roof panel. The 2006 PT Cruiser's interior was updated including fresh seat trim and a satin silver-finished instrument panel with larger graphics and an analog clock. A passenger grab handle now sits on the instrument panel, and a new console features a sliding armrest. All radios came with MP3 capability standard.

Up to five occupants can fit inside the versatile interior. Two bucket seats are installed up front and a 65/35-split, folding rear bench holds three.

Removing the rear seat expands cargo volume from a moderate 21.6 cubic feet to a sizable 62.7 cubic feet. The front-passenger seatback folds flat, leaving enough space to haul an 8-foot ladder. Performance seats, silver cluster gauges and a satin silver gearshift knob are included in the GT.  Built on a 103-inch wheelbase, the PT Cruiser is 168.9 inches long overall and 63 inches tall.

Chrysler's unabashed retro styled PT Cruiser Convertible went into production in early 2004 as a 2005 model. Styling features include a broad sport bar above the passenger area. The 2006 convertible model got the same updates mentioned above along with the traditional sedan. Convertibles came in the Touring and GT trim levels; the split, folding rear seat is the same height in both the convertible and wagon, and provides theater-style seating.

The PT Cruiser blends the elements of a sedan, wagon, sport utility vehicle and minivan overlaid with street-rod styling from the 1950s. Hard to imagine another vehicle model with appeal to so many styles and needs at the same time! And they pulled it off so elegantly!

The convertible's driving characteristics are nearly identical to the solid-roofed PT Cruiser; the soft-top model yields a tremendously pleasing driving experience. The thick roof bar doesn't detract from the pleasures of the sun. A top-down GT with automatic performs and handles with a light touch, a spirited throttle; the roof goes up and down easily. Owners give the convertible Cruiser high marks for low wind annoyance when the top is down.

A liftgate-mounted sport spoiler came standard on the GT and optional on the Limited. The potent PT Cruiser GT has a larger, lower grille opening for its air-to-air intercooler. Additional GT features include a large-diameter chrome exhaust tip and all-season performance tires on 17-inch chrome-clad wheels.

The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder produces 150 hp. Two turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinders are offered, producing either 180 hp or 230 hp.

Imaginative and distinctive styling and visual appeal are the main attractions, but this wagon's roomy and flexible interior keeps fulfilling owners’ needs. Throttle response is rapid, handling is confident and nimble. This wagon maneuvers with utter crispness and can take corners with impressive speed; the stable PT Cruiser is exceptionally easy to drive!

Antilock brakes are standard on the GT and available on other trim levels. Side-impact airbags for the front seats are optional, but a driver's inflatable knee blocker is newly standard.

GMC Sierra

Even though the GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado share the same platform, the GMC side is most often positioned as the more upscale option. The Sierra nameplate has been associated with GMC’s pickups since the late 1980s and for most of its storied history it has remained essentially the same. The styling has changed occasionally to keep up with the times, but the Sierra still has strong roots that hark back to the old days.

It started as a no-frills workhorse on ranches, farms and construction sites; today it has become equally popular as the family car able to handle long weekends, picnics and pleasure craft tow. Versions of the Sierra seat up to six passengers.

An electronic trailer sway control, hill-start assist, power door locks, and cruise control became standard in 2012. For 2013, the Sierra got a new powertrain grade-braking feature to prevent the brakes from overheating when traveling downhill. Exterior colors Sonoma Red and Heritage Blue were introduced.

The used GMC Sierra offers a surprisingly pleasant driving experience with light but precise steering and a quiet cabin. The added muscle starts showing with the 5.3-liter engine and it can get the Sierra through any work and load with ease.

The front seats for the used GMC Sierra are quite comfortable, the SLE came with bucket seats as an option, the rear seats of the crew cab models are very spacious - entry and exit to the rear is great thanks to the rear doors that swing a full 170 degrees. The seats can be folded down completely flat too, allowing for easy-load cargo.

The Sierra's standard electronic stability system includes rollover mitigation technology. GM says its seat belt pretensions activate during rear impacts. Safety features include:

  • Four-wheel antilock brakes
  • Traction control
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Available OnStar alerts authorities after a crash
  • Available rear parking sensors
  • Available backup camera

The used GMC Sierra has hill-start control, trailer sway control, stability control, and anti-lock disc brakes as standard. Side curtain and front side airbags are optional, along with a rearview camera. The standard electronic stability system of the Sierra also gets rollover mitigation technology. Available safety features include a backup camera and an OnStar system to automatically alert authorities in case of an accident.

The Safety ratings for the Sierra come in extremely high. In government crash tests, the used GMC Sierra received an overall score of four stars (out of five). It earned four stars for overall frontal crash protection and five stars for overall side crash protection.
