Used 2013 Jeep Wrangler - Kelly Risk Free - Easton, PA - Emmaus, PA
The Jeep Wrangler interior was extensively upgraded for the 2012 model year, which set up 2013 to be a magnificent year to purchase this vehicle. Jeep has done an outstanding job with the Wrangler’s interior. Quality materials abound and the layout, execution and attention to detail are all first-rate.
 
But the most outstanding improvement was found under the hood with the new horsepower number of 285. Produced by a new 3.7 liter V6 engine, this constituted a 40 percent gain on ability over the former 202 HP producer. With the new 5-speed automatic transmission the powertrain also displayed much improved performance in acceleration and fuel efficiency.
 
The 2012 Wrangler's five-speed automatic transmission (was an option) provides you with more efficiency, better contact with the new V6 torque curve and with its lower 1st-gear ratio, better ability to clear and get over those street and off-road obstructions.
 
Even with the modernizations and finer interior touches, the 2012 Jeep Wrangler is still a Jeep, with all the features jeep buyers are looking for. Its off-road objectives remain clear with minimal overhangs in the front and rear, live axles front and rear with enough ground clearance to drive over a boulder without doing damage to the rock or the drivetrain, a suspension that remains in regular contact with the paved surfaces beneath it, excellent outward visibility and the separate body-on-frame construction ensures longevity and aids in ease of repair. Think about elements such as easily replaceable fenders and removable doors and you have both an off-road instrument and a metro trooper.
 
With that additional power naturally comes enhanced control, Jeep offers a full menu of safety and security, including electronic stability control, electronic roll mitigation, fully responsive steering, Hill-start Assist, and Trailer-sway Control with the most aggressive 4WD technology.
 
You arguably have the most competent Jeep Wrangler ever made in its 70-year history with the 2013 model.

Used 2015 GMC Acadia - Kelly Risk Free - Easton, PA - Emmaus, PA 

 
 
With better fuel economy than a truck-based SUV, this copious interior, three-row passenger utility vehicle with great towing capability, 2015 GMC Acadia is practical and very appealing on many levels. The extremely amenable ride quality and generous cargo capacity behind the third row, a cabin that has abundant seating for up to eight passengers and has figured in the top crash test scores makes it one of the top choices in the large SUV segment.    

Design

One of the Acadia's best features is its smooth and quiet ride. Unlike other large truck-based SUVs, the Acadia can be driven daily on pot-hole spiked freeways and uneven asphalt in exceeding comfort. You'll have no fear picking up the family at the airport with a huge luggage capacity, and seats for everyone!  The 2015 GMC Acadia delivers a nice balance between space, utility, secure handling and an extraordinarily comfortable ride.
 
The Acadia features an attractive interior, as most of the areas you will touch are padded and of solid quality. Front occupants will enjoy ample head and legroom, as will the second-row occupants. This row can be slid all the way back opening even more space. Getting into the third row is reasonably easy, on par with other vehicles in the large SUV segment; the third row is actually roomy enough for two adults to fit in comfortably or three kids happily.

Performance, Safety, and Technology

The V6 engine has ample power to get the Acadia up to speed on the highway and it can tow up to 5,200 pounds when properly equipped, a very respectable number in the crossover segment.
 
This trim, the SLT-1, has all the features on the baser models listed below and adds: 19-inch wheels, foglamps, variable-effort steering, heated mirrors, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery in the first and second rows (third row vinyl), heated front seats, an eight-way power passenger seat, rear-seat audio controls with headphone jacks and a 10-speaker Bose sound system.
 
The SLE-1 came standard with 18-inch wheels, automatic headlights, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, rear privacy glass, keyless entry, cruise control, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, OnStar telematics, Bluetooth phone connectivity, a 6.5-inch touchscreen display and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player, satellite radio, a USB port and an auxiliary audio jack. There are also dual USB charge-only ports on the rear of the center console.
 
SLE-2 added remote vehicle start, a power liftgate, an eight-way power driver seat (with two-way lumbar), a two-way power passenger seat (manual recline), an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and the Intellilink electronics interface that includes voice controls, Bluetooth audio connectivity and smartphone app integration.

Design

The LaCrosse comes with precise steering and secure handling, yet it also has the plush ride quality you expect of a luxury sedan. The quiet interior further compliments the upscale feel. Seats are supportive and there's plenty of leg and shoulder room even in the backseat. The available heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated front seats are an especially refined touch.
 
The sophisticated cabin has broad, all-encompassing design lines and high quality surfaces, all set off by the use of soft LED accent lighting. The roomy cabin is serene, silent, well-equipped with useful features and luxuries, ranging from a rearview camera to a dual-screen video entertainment system.
 
 This luxury Leather model comes with everything included in the base trim plus foglamps, heated mirrors, rear park assist, a rearview camera, leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver memory settings and an eight-way power front passenger seat.

Performance

This generation of LaCrosse came with a choice of two engines: a four-cylinder or a V6.

A six-speed automatic transmission is presented here with front wheel drive. Fuel mileage estimates are 17 mpg city/27 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined.

Used 2014 Nissan Sentra - Kelly Risk Free - Easton, PA - Emmaus, PA


The 2014 Nissan Sentra returned with a new engine and a more upscale look, inside and out.  The comfortable interior came back with a long list of desirable standard features and options. Of course it goes without saying that the Sentra is one of the best fuel economy vehicles out there. There are two sporty options, including the 200-horsepower SE-R Spec V, designed to appeal to driving aficionados. As you'd expect, the SE-R Spec V is fun with abundant acceleration and noticeably sharper handling.
 
The Sentra SE-R trim level came equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, performance-oriented suspension tuning, an aero-style body kit, cloth sport seats, stereo with color display and gauges that allow the driver to monitor things like oil pressure and g-forces during cornering; the SV adds to the features of the SE-R audio and cruise control buttons on its steering wheel, sportier interior trim and a six-speaker sound system. Outside, more power, higher-performance tires, an even firmer suspension with a lower ride height, larger front brakes, a rear spoiler, underbody aerodynamic deflectors and low-rolling-resistance tires, all of which promote slightly higher highway fuel efficiency.

The Sentra's interior features surprisingly spacious front seats in that small package that make it easy for even tall people to get into and out of the car.  A 60/40-split-folding rear seat configuration comes with ample headroom and hip room for smart comfort. Luggage capacity is generous for the class. At 15.1 cubic feet, this Sentra's trunk volume is comparable to that of many midsize sedans.
 
Front seat lower cushion storage pockets, Auto Hazard Warning Signal and an updated NissanConnect with navigation, smartphone integration and voice recognition became standard. A sliding front armrest is also added for the SL grade and SV/SR Driver Packages. From a driver's perspective, the dashboard was acclaimed for its simple and well-defined design of instruments and controls.
 
For 2014, Nissan revised the tuning for the Sentra’s continuously variable transmission, steering and suspension.
 
What is the Xtronic? The Sentra uses a continuously variable transmission (CVT) which doesn’t use traditional fixed gear ratios. Rather it depends on two hydraulically operated steel pulleys which are connected by a metal chain link. Upon acceleration, the sides of the v-shaped pulleys either push together or pull apart to move the position of the chain on the pulleys.
 
As the belt moves smoothly between the gear ratios, the Xtronic CVT doesn’t technically shift, which means that shifting lag when there’s a loss of power while shifting in an automatic transmission no longer occurs. This keeps the engine at its most efficient at all times, increasing fuel economy and keeping the transmission lasting for a very long time.
 
Nissan fully redesigned the Sentra in 2013 making changes to the car's design, improving fuel economy and enhancing space and new features as well as structural design changes that reduce noise within the cabin and improve ride comfort and handling. The Sentra for 2014 came with sharper handling making it incredibly enjoyable to drive through turns and of course easy to maneuver around town.
