Used GMC SUVs in Rhode Island
While there are plenty of fresh-from-the-factory General Motors crossovers and SUVs waiting in the showroom, the reality is that not everyone can (or even wants to) buy new. Used vehicles are the car buyer’s most economical option because they’re cost-effective and have been built to last. You can even get a loaded used vehicle for thousands less than you’d pay for a brand-new base version of the same model. Plus, it’s easier than ever to learn about a used vehicle’s history to help you make more informed purchasing decisions. Read on for more details on the advantages of choosing a used GM crossover or SUV.
Used Vehicle Pricing Advantage
It’s common knowledge that brand-new vehicles depreciate as soon as they’re driven off the lot, since they’re no longer considered new. But brand-new cars will always sell well because many drivers can afford them, and the feeling of being the very first owner of a flawless, state-of-the-art vehicle is hard to resist. But those who are more practical and instead get a great feeling from saving money can feel even more satisfied as the second or even third driver of a well-kept used GM crossover or SUV. There’s a wide inventory of these vehicles just a few years old selling for significantly less than their original stickers.
Consider the GMC Terrain crossover as an example. A 2020 Terrain SLT starts at $32,395, yet it’s possible to find a low-miles 2016 version with a price tag under $20,000. The SLE trim of the midsized Acadia has a 2020 MSRP of $34,995, but you can find that same trim as a 2017 model for about $10,000 less. For the driver who’s looking for something with a bit more heft, consider the full-sized Yukon. A 2020 Yukon Denali retails around $67,700, while a 2016 of the same trim can be found in the $45,000 range with average mileage.
Award-Winning Certified Pre-Owned Program
GMC certified pre-owned (CPO) crossovers and SUVs are the elite members of the used-vehicle realm. There are many advantages of buying CPO stock, from the added confidence to the additional warranty protection. These vehicles have met extra-strict standards for quality and condition, starting with passing a detailed 172-point inspection and reconditioning process during which only original GM parts are used.
GMC crossovers and SUVs in the CPO program receive a six-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. The buyer also gets two complimentary maintenance visits, and 24-hour roadside assistance, plus a free Carfax vehicle history report and three-month trial subscriptions for OnStar services and SiriusXM satellite radio.
