Jeep Grand Cherokee

Consider a used Jeep Grand Cherokee if you're seeking a capable and comfortable SUV. As the "Most Awarded SUV Ever", the Grand Cherokee offers superior off-road performance and an upscale interior that's brimming with safety and entertainment features. If you opt for a used Jeep SUV such as the Grand Cherokee, you'll be getting a high-quality vehicle that offers excellent comfort and style regardless of road conditions!

We've found that the Subaru Outback's reputation precedes itself among Denver area drivers. With standard all-wheel drive, a used Subaru provides reliable performance in wet and wintry conditions.

Of course, the Outback also offers family-friendly versatility and a long list of high-tech features such as Subaru's EyeSight driver assistance system. As a result, the Outback helps drivers conquer their daily carpool or commute!

Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder blends all-terrain capability with a comfortable, spacious interior that's ideal for busy families. The three-row SUV offers seating for seven passengers and a long list of convenience features for your driving pleasure!

While front-wheel drive is standard, drivers can upgrade to all-wheel drive for improved performance in difficult conditions. Suffice it to say, the Pathfinder is up to the task in all driving conditions.

You'll want to check out a pre-owned Ford Fusion if you'd love to drive a family sedan that offers sporty performance in all conditions. Available in a hybrid version, the Fusion makes great use of an available EcoBoost engine to provide effortless power and strong fuel economy ratings!

The Fusion also makes your job easier behind the wheel in its stylish, high-quality interior that's jam-packed with innovative safety features such as adaptive cruise control and a rearview camera!

Toyota Sienna

Sure, the Toyota Sienna is a capable people-mover, but the minivan also offers better performance and capability than many of its competitors.

You'll be pleased to know that the Toyota Sienna is the only minivan to offer all-wheel drive functionality. That’s not to mention the Sienna’s expansive, well-appointed interior that brings comfort and convenience to your daily travels.

In other words, a pre-owned Sienna is truly your best bet if you need a minivan that's designed to hold up throughout the winter months!

Land Rover Range Rover

The Range Rover is a top choice for drivers seeking an SUV that blends high-performance with luxury. Over the years, the Ranger Rover has built a reputation for dynamic off-road performance and that certainly holds true to this day!

Of course, the Range Rover also delivers a silky smooth, car-like ride when you’re on the highway or navigating city streets. As a result, the Range Rover is ready for adventure, but prepared to handle the rigors of daily driving in the Denver area!

Naturally, the Range Rover is also filled to the brim with high-end amenities that assures a comfortable and connected driving experience.

Subaru XV Crosstrek

Another entrant from Subaru should hardly surprise drivers as the Japanese automaker has established itself as a leader in vehicle safety and performance. After all, Subaru was recently named the "Most Trusted Brand" by the experts at Kelley Blue Book.

Much like the Outback, the XV Crosstrek is equipped with Subaru's Symmetrical all-wheel drive system that allows the crossover to maintain traction control in adverse driving conditions.

Cited as a PZEV (Partial Zero Emission Vehicle), the XV Crosstrek offers excellent fuel economy ratings in addition to its all-weather capability.

At an economical starting price, the XV Crosstrek simply demands the attention of families and commuters throughout the greater Denver area.
