Choosing Your Next Car

Shopping for a new vehicle is fun but brings a ton of questions! There is an overwhelming variety of car brands to choose from when searching for a vehicle. Sometimes, knowing which brand is the best option for you is difficult! We ~personally~ prefer Nissan & INFINITI, but also sell various high-quality used vehicles from other OEMs. We’ve seen and studied them all to ensure we can provide you with the information you need to make the best decision.


Understanding the difference between car brands and models is essential for choosing a vehicle. The car brand is a company that sells cars and products. Vehicle models are the specific product that each company sells. Nissan sells the model Kicks, for example. Every year, brands release new models with updated features and technology.

Key Features

Luckily, most car manufacturers are opting for eco-friendly and safe designs. More cars are fuel-efficient, and some are even going electric.  

Driver-assist is an option in some vehicles. With radar and sonar cameras, guided driving, and lane change assistance, drivers can worry less about accidents. 

Newer technology is not only noticeable in car safety design, however. It’s also becoming prominent in more revolutionary features as well. Some newer vehicles are coming out with new comfort enhancements like Apple Carplay®, built-in Amazon Alexa, and wireless charging. This new technology makes life more simple, more comfortable, and safer. 

Technological comfort, however,  is nothing compared to physical comfort. Whether you need a vehicle that can perform well offroad or one that can fit the entire family, finding the right car is important for your long-term satisfaction.


With so many great features, the cost can add up quickly. Finding a vehicle without breaking the bank can be tough. It’s why there are so many great payment options like buying a used car or leasing.  

At McGavock, we understand that choosing a car can be stressful, but following these tips can help you navigate the process. If you have more questions, feel free to give us a call to talk to a sales representative today!
