We’re about halfway through the summer and if you haven’t already had an awesome weekend getaway, we’re sure one is in your future! You know what they say…a road trip is only as strong as the car you’re driving. Okay, we’re the only ones who’ve said that. It’s true, nonetheless. We put together a list of what we think are the 5 of the best summer road trip cars. Best part? They’re all available at Lester Glenn. Check it out!
1.) Chevrolet Tahoe
With a ton of space and the room for 9 passengers, the Tahoe comes equipped with a wide variety of features that allow utmost comfort ideal for longer trips. The center console is large enough to fit a laptop and the 8-inch diagonal color touch-screen slides up to reveal even more space, ideal for extra storage for more valuable items. There are also multiple seating configurations and a wireless charging feature for extra convenience and ease. The list keeps going!
2.) Ford Explorer
One of the coolest features of this car is the hands-free, foot activated lift gate, which is perfect for a road trip. While you’re packing up the car, unloading your supplies, or just normally have your hands full, the foot-activated lift gate just simply makes things a lot easier. With a smoother and improved ride, it’s comfortable for your whole family.
3.) Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
If off-roading is your thing, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is for you. Its Command Trac 4WD system splits torque 50/50 between the front and rear axles for off-roading or conditions where more traction is required. Hill Descent Control also helps you monitor throttle, speed, and braking when you’re going downhill and may need it most. Even cooler, it keeps your brakes applied for a time after you’ve removed your foot to give you time to accelerate without rollback. With these features and so many more, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is perfect for the most outdoorsy summer getaways.
With more cargo space behind the third row than any other competitor in its class, the GMC Acadia is perfect for extra long road trips that require extra luggage. There’s underfloor storage behind the third row and fold-flat third-row 60/40 split bench seats, maximizing the travel experience. With all of this room, you won’t have to sacrifice that extra suitcase. With seating capacity up to 8 people, the Acadia just keeps getting better.
5.) Subaru Forester
Subaru is all about safety and with its Eyesight Driver Assist, you’re sure to have a safe trip no matter where you go. This system automatically monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you’re swaying outside your lane. The Forester also comes equipped with 7 air bags, including front, front seat side pelvis/torso, side-curtain, and driver’s knee airbags. Additionally, the ring-shaped reinforcement frame is intended to provide the ultimate protection in a collision. It’s made of high-tensile strength steel and directs impact energy around the passenger compartment, rather than through it. You can’t go wrong with a Forester for your trip…or for any day of the week.
Whether you’re already in one of these great cars or you’re in the market, Lester Glenn is ready when you are.
