Okay, need some help/opinions... If you have $25-30,000 to buy a vehicle, outright (don't like car payments)... what do you pick?

Preferences
  • 2020 model
  • Good MPG
  • Of course, reliable
  • Would rather it be a SUV or a truck with extended cab (needs to hold 4-5 people)
I've been looking around, found a used 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee (I've had two, I like them) that has 24,000 miles on it. They were asking $26,400 for it. But the warranty will be up in 16,000 miles. I'm asking here because it gets overwhelming looking online at vehicles! Thanks!

I may take some heat, but I like the new Rangers. They're now as big as an older model F-150, but I'm unsure about the MPG.

I was looking at the Chevy Colorado's as well. Nothing wrong with the Rangers. Thanks for the input.
You can get a new F150 with the Ecoboost engine for the low $30’s. Big enough to carry your family and good gas mileage

I drive a 2011 Chevy Colorado (sun burnt orange color - others seem to think it's red). Got it slightly used and has been a great vehicle. Little to no problems. Short enough to fit into the garage, but extended cab to hold 4 to 6 people (good old fashioned front bench seat with middle seat belt but I never use it.

Drove a 2019 Chevy Traverse (large model?) last year. Spacious, they can seat up to 8 on some models... and they get decent gas mileage... NOT GREAT really.

Buddy of mine just bought a 2013 Nissan Ultima off of carvana . Fantastic little car, and he was really impressed with the experience of Carvana.

if you’re going with an SUV, i’ve heard a lot of good things on range rover’s. The price points kind a high though. My jeep liberty is OK;I don’t think I would buy another one though.

I have had two colorados and I'm a fan. I'm getting 24 26 mpg.
I see these on the road a lot and they look like a really good option. Smaller than the full size but not as small as the old S-10 or Ford Ranger. I've also noticed the new Jeep pickup truck. They look pretty cool, but have no idea about price or gas mileage.

I have a 2017 and it's the best vehicle I've ever owned. I might drive it for another decade but when it's time to upgrade I'm looking at another Colorado first.

He said he's looking for something that could easily seat 4-5 people. The only drawback is size. I can seat 4 adults comfortably but not so sure about having another in the middle back seat. For day to day driving that's not an issue but if you are going on a trip comfort becomes an issue and luggage is going to be in the bed.

Probably should read Consumer Reports and other automobile review media. They are now t kids nd to the Colorado

Hertz is having a bankruptcy sale. I just bought a 2019 Subaru Forrester on Carvana with only 2000 miles. Hertz has some 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 4x4 with 4000 - 7000 miles for $31,000.
Hertz is required to sell all their cars as part of bankruptcy so they have great deals and will deliver to your house.

Hertz has over 300 2020 Chevrolet Silverado for sale on their website.
