 2016 GMC Terrain - Kelly Car - Emmaus, PA

The attractive, comfortable, and well equipped, front-wheel drive Terrain has a good, rugged look that helps this compact SUV appear bigger than it really is. The 2016 Terrain continues to offer front and all-wheel drive plus a choice of two engines: the 182-hp 2.4-liter four and the naturally aspirated 3.6-liter V-6, which provides 301 horsepower.
 
The 2016 Terrain remained largely the same as previous models, though GMC has given the 2016 Terrain a taller, contoured grille, more chrome and LED daytime running lights. The hood has been described as “power bulging” and the front and rear bumpers have been revised with additional shiny accouterments. The look is burly, but less industrialized. 
 
The GMC Terrain offers plenty of room, flexibility, and amenities. This truck is extremely popular, being the number-two best seller for GMC, second only to the Sierra full-size pickup. And it’s a BIG favorite among women.
 
The interior received a few updates, among the options are a 7.0-inch touchscreen and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, sharper graphics on the central, seven-inch touch-screen interface, a 4G LTE OnStar connection, a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot, which enables the Terrain to function as a wireless hotspot for up to seven devices, and Apple’s Siri Eyes Free connectivity and the optional navigation system with GMC’s IntelliLink.
 
The Terrain maintains GMC's MultiFlex adjustable rear seat, which slides backwards and forwards with an attached floor panel that prevents items from getting stuck in the space behind it. There is a nice total of 31.6 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the backseat, with an expansive total of 63.9 cubic feet of maximum area volume when the seat is folded down. Those seats are outfitted with new fabric upholstery, new leather color options, a power front passenger seat, and the revamped center stack with updated visuals.
 
On the highway, you’ll love the V-6’s power, you can cruise at higher speeds with an unmatched hushed experience. The Terrain has found a way to almost completely eliminate any exterior wind noise.
 
Overall, the Terrain is a very comfortable car on the highway and its compact size makes it easy to maneuver in the city as well. In addition to the hushed cabin, the ride is among the best - easily superior to the smaller vehicles in the compact SUV class.
 
Safety features include the SafetyLane departure and forward collision warning systems, rear cross-traffic alert and a blind spot warning system, which were previously available only on the Denali, now became optional on most trims.

  Used 2008 Nissan Maxima - Kelly Car - Emmaus, PA

After receiving a mid-cycle refresh in 2007 the 2008 Nissan Maxima continued to offer an abundant combination of performance, luxury and space. The Maxima comes standard with a V6 along with high quality features and space.

Considered a midsize sedan, the 2008 Nissan Maxima's interior feels unambiguously spacious in both the front and rear. The open feel of the roof SkyView assists in that expansive feel substantially.  Driver and passenger seats are wide and comfortable, the dashboard features a sleek and modern design, controls are very user-friendly. Equipment included a power driver seat, tilt-telescoping steering wheel, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition/entry and an eight-speaker stereo with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Exterior features included 18-inch alloy wheels, side skirts, a rear spoiler, and the fixed SkyView glass-paneled roof; classy design with a sports car feel.

The powertrain of the 2008 Nissan Maxima is a carry-over from the previous year's model: Nissan's award-winning VQ-series V6 and Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) teamed up to propel the 3,600-pound midsize sedan. The result is a maximum of 255 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque directed to the front wheels. The CVT offers smooth, powerful highway performance. EPA estimates rate the Maxima at 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.

The striking 2008 Nissan Maxima is brisk off the starting line with a broad midrange that the CVT fully exploits, Nissan does a great job of ensuring the engine works in the most effective range of its power band with plenty of muscle and an incredible lack of road noise.

In the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's frontal crash testing, the Nissan Maxima received a top five-star rating for the driver and four-star rating for the front passenger. Side-impact testing resulted in a four-star rating for both the front and rear seats. Antilock disc brakes with brake assist, traction control, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side-impact head curtain airbags represent the Maxima's key standard safety features.

The suspension is tuned more for well-being than sport and you’ll experience a very comfortable, solid, steering impression under normal driving conditions. This vehicle has superlative comfort on the wide open spaces of the highway - you’ll sense its power, comfort, security and excellent mileage. Mechanically, this vehicle has an excellent reputation for trouble-free operation requiring only routine maintenance. Excellent car, excellent value!

2004 Mitsubishi Lancer - Kelly Car - Emmaus, PA

If you’re looking for a used, fun-to-drive, reasonably priced, reliable, roomy, comfy, fuel efficient, wagon with great visibility, low insurance, sporty handling and good ride quality look no further than this fetching, rare find- the 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback Wagon.

This model is well known for its longevity; enthusiastic owners keep their Lancers for years caring for them devotedly. The engine will go for well over 100,000 miles with mostly routine maintenance, mileage on this 10+ year old vehicle clocks in around 25 MPG city and 31 MPG hwy.

Billed by Mitsubishi as “a rally car for today,” this five-door hatchback version of the Lancer sedan was new to the U.S. market for 2004. The Lancer Sportback wagon joined the sporty Lancer lineup in 2004 along with a performance-oriented Ralliart version of both the sedan and wagon; these were heady days for Mitusbishi. The Sportback wagon as well as the sedan got a new 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine rated at 160 horsepower. The entire Lancer line got a redesigned front fascia with Mitsubishi's iconic grille design, new integrated bumpers, halogen headlamps and a relocated rear license plate.

The introduction of the more powerful and fun-to-drive Sportback and Ralliart models really gave the Lancer the boost it needed to compete with leaders in that class. It was offered in multiple body styles and trim levels, attended to with a clean cabin design, automatic transmission, solid power and generous cargo capacity. The interior easily accommodates 5 people with ample comfort while at the same time handling a substantial load in the back.

The cleverly designed storage tray under the boot floor can carry all those items that take up a permanent place in your vehicle without adding clutter. Tools, toys, CDs, power cords can all be stowed out of sight. Seats fold down to accommodate snowboards and skiis, mountains bikes, hockey equipment and can even turn your vehicle into a camping car for the night!

Passing on the highway is a breeze and pick up does not lag when merging onto the highway. There were only about 3000 of these vehicles imported to the United States so you will have the pleasure of owning something unique.

1997 Jeep Wrangler For Sale - Kelly Car - Emmaus, PA

 

The Jeep has a style that's changed very little in more than 70 years, this Wrangler is an heir to the first Jeep military vehicles of World War II; the 1997 Wrangler is full of personality. What other vehicle allows you to take off the doors, remove the top, fold down the flat windshield or hose it out after an off-pavement adventure? There’s really nothing like a Jeep Wrangler, totally customizable, fun on road and off - and they really do seem to last forever. Evokes Jurassic park!

Sahara is the topline Wrangler from 1997-2004, with standard features including a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel, cassette or CD player, fog lamps, intermittent wipers, alloy wheels and 225/75R-15 rubber.

The Wrangler has always been thought of as a rough-rider, but beginning with the 1997 model, the Wrangler became a vehicle you could drive every day. It's the last Wrangler available with the legendary AMC inline-6, and it's smaller and 400 lb. lighter than the 2007-and-later Wranglers, which are not as nimble off road.

The 1997 Jeep Wrangler ushered in a coil spring suspension with gas-pressure shocks that gave the vehicle a greatly improved on-pavement ride. The result was a smoother highway drive, making the post-1997 Wrangler a better all-around vehicle. With its compact size, tight turning circle, short overhangs and generous 8.5 inches of ground clearance, that year’s Wrangler was still one of the best off-road vehicles around. Other improvements included dual front airbags, instruments centered in front of the driver, 7 in more suspension articulation and optional ABS on some models.

People are devoted to this vehicle and care for them lovingly; owning and getting into a Jeep Wrangler Sahara changes your perspective. The short wheelbase, wide track, and high center of gravity make for a drive aimed of course at off roading. A turn off the pavement and the Wrangler is master of its environment. Even if you don't spend a lot of your time in the back country, you know it won’t take much to get back out there in your Wrangler.

The Wrangler for that year came in SE, Sport, Sahara, X, Rubicon and Unlimited trims. All models featured 4-wheel drive and came standard with a canvas top that features side curtains with zip-out plastic windows and half-canvas doors. An optional hardtop with steel doors and roll-up tinted glass windows was produced that included a rear window defroster and wiper. A stout rollover bar was standard and there are no side airbags, power windows, mirrors or door locks, as the doors are removable.

370z

If you’re looking for a real 2-seater sports car with a sterling reputation for reliability that is as strong as its performance you can’t go wrong with Nissan’s 370Z Coupe! This vehicle makes no sacrifice between performance and comfort – it’s all there.

After a large refresh for the 2013 model year, the only changes for the used Nissan 370Z come to the Nismo special edition, which included new exterior dark gray with red pinstripe accent cues, a new Alcantara steering wheel, and a red Nismo tachometer.

The sporty rear-drive used Nissan 370Z coupe is the sixth generation to bear the Z name.

One spin in a used Nissan 370Z Coupe is all it takes to understand the devotion Nissan engineers took to get this car to feel perfect. The 
used Nissan 370Z stays planted and confident when cornering, remaining nearly level even when pushed to the limits.

Even with firm spring and shock settings, the used Nissan 370Z’s ride isn’t harsh; you’ll find the 370Z’s power steering delivers a satisfying blend of nominal effort with great response and feel; the brakes remain strong and consistent even after hard use. Finding the right blend of comfort and performance is a suspension engineer’s greatest challenge. Again, the Nissan engineers delivered.

The heart of Nissan’s 370Z Sport Coupe is its 3.7-liter, 332-hp, 3.7-liter V-6 that produces 270 lb-ft of torque and SynchroRev Match manual transmission which transmits power to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual or an optional seven-speed automatic that gets a manual mode with paddle shifters.

Buyers who opted for the Sport Package got Nissan’s downshift-matching system with the six-speed, a really sweet feature. If you don’t want it engaged, it’s quite easy to switch on and off thanks to a button by the shifter.

Smooth, strong and always enthusiastic, this heady V6 feels refined in everyday driving and delivers great fuel economy.

The Sport package includes a significant brake upgrade for 2014. Larger rotors, 14″ front, 13.8″ rear, vs. 12.6″ all around in the base car, and upgraded calipers.

While we think practical issues like gas mileage are always a concern, the fuel economy on the used Nissan 370Z Sport Coupe is very good for such a high performance car.

Come in to Kelly Automotive to see and test drive this spectacular car!
