The Ford Bronco is best known for its infamous ride with OJ Simpson, but the new model has people buzzing with excitement. Although it isn’t released yet, you may want to put off your new purchase until you’ve got to test drive it.
The 4×4 SUV is going to challenge the beloved Jeep. Although many details of the Bronco haven’t been released, they have said that there will be a hybrid option. Keep an eye out for this one.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
So, you’ve heard of the challenger and its many packages, RT, SXT, TA, Scat Pack Shaker, and the powerhouse Hellcat. Most car enthusiasts thought the Hellcat was the end of the road with its 707 horsepower. They thought for a production car, that was it. The best of the best. Then came the SRT Demon. It is as scary as it sounds. It comes with 808 horsepower. It is the first production car to pop a wheelie. If you want fast, this is it. This isn’t a practical car to drive daily because of its power, but it is fun to add to the collection. It comes in around $90,000.
The previous model of the Chevrolet Traverse had a minivan feel to it. It was longer and rounded like a van. The only thing that was missing was the sliding door. Well, the new one has stepped up and crawled out of the minivan shadow. It has a much sporter look. The 2018 Traverse looks like a regular mid-size SUV. It sits a little lower to the ground, so you will sit down instead of climb in like you would in a Tahoe.
The inside is just as great as the outside. It can hold up to eight people, seven if you opt for captain seats. The safety and entertainment features are top notches. The vehicle can have a DVD player and Bluetooth capabilities. As far as safety goes, the options offered are a rear vision, surround vision, adaptive cruise, and teen driver technology. Teen driver technology mutes the radio until a seatbelt is buckled and it automatically enables all safety features.
Now that you’ve seen a few cars, it’s time to get out there and test drive them. The prices for each model will vary based on features. Before you hop in the car or look at the price, decide what features are a must have and decide which features you can live without. Once you’ve found the vehicle and features you want, be sure to check different dealerships to get the best price. Happy shopping!
