The 2011 Lincoln MKS serves as an intriguing choice for full-size luxury car buyers looking for a taste of cutting edge automotive technology. The Lincoln MKS can be loaded up with features such as adaptive cruise control, a THX-certified surround sound system, a digital music storage system and even an automatic parking feature that can slot the large sedan into a parallel spot with no driver intervention required.
The 2011 Lincoln MKS is initially offered with a 3.7-liter V-6 that generates 273 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, and all-wheel drive is available as an option. It is also possible to order an EcoBoost version of the MKS, which installs a 3.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V-6 that is good for 355 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Transmission choice remains the same, but all-wheel drive becomes standard. Surprisingly, the more powerful EcoBoost model also achieves the most impressive fuel mileage of the two drivetrains, coming in at 17 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% interest plus $500 cash back or $3,000 total cash back on the 2011 Lincoln MKS available until 10/03/2011.
The 2011 Dodge Charger is a full-size family car designed to appeal to drivers looking to satisfy their inner hooligan. The Dodge Charger ticks off all of the important boxes when it comes to daily transportation – large, comfy interior, solid array of safety features, availability of high end equipment such as leather seats – but its aggressive looks scream out that this is one four-door that doesn’t march in lock-step with the rest of the crowd.
The 2011 Dodge Charger’s menacing demeanor is backed up by two impressive engine choices. The base Charger comes with a 292 horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 that also puts out 260 lb-ft of torque, while the Charger R/T is fitted with a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 that provides 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. Each motor is paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, and R/T models also benefit from the option of all-wheel drive. Fuel economy for the V-6 Charger shows as 18 miles per gallon around town and 27 miles per gallon on the highway, while the V-8 edition is rated at 16 miles per gallon city and 25 miles per gallon highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% interest or $1,000 cash back on the 2011 Dodge Charger available until 09/06/2011.
The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo has been completely redesigned for the current model year, and the mid-size SUV is now even more capable both on and off the pavement. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo trim is the most affordable version of the rugged yet sophisticated sport-utility vehicle, and it can be optioned out to include such features as Bluetooth integration, leather seats and a touchscreen entertainment system.
The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is offered with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine under the hood. Capable of generating 290 horses and 260 lb-ft of twist, this motor returns fuel mileage figures of 16 miles per gallon in stop and go driving and 22 miles per gallon on the highway. A five-speed automatic transmission is included free of charge, and Laredo buyers can choose between either rear-wheel drive or one of two four-wheel drive systems (Quadra-Trac I and Quadra-Trac II).
There is a financing incentive of 1.9% interest plus $1,000 cash back on the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo available until 09/06/2011.
The 2011 Nissan Titan is the Japanese brand’s full-size pickup competitor. The Nissan Titan comes in both King and Crew Cab editions, and each can handle additional passengers behind the first row of accommodations. The Crew Cab also offers full-size rear doors in order to make access to the cabin that much easier. The Titan offers three different cargo bed lengths, with the longest checking in at seven-feet, three-inches, and when properly equipped that truck can tow up to 9,500 lbs.
The 2011 Nissan Titan keeps things simple in the engine compartment by offering only a single V-8 mill. This 5.6-liter unit provides a healthy 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque, and features a fuel mileage rating of 12 miles per gallon around town and 17 miles per gallon on the highway. All Titan trucks come with a five-speed automatic transmission, and a four-wheel drive system is also available.
The 2011 Toyota Camry is one of the top choices amongst mid-size sedans, and at first glance it’s easy to understand why. The Toyota Camry does almost everything well, which means it offers a comfortable ride, an affordable price and plenty of interior room. It also comes with Toyota’s reputation for reliability, which is an important consideration amongst family shoppers and commuters alike.
The 2011 Toyota Camry provides buyers with both four and six-cylinder engine options. The base Camry is equipped with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder motor that offers up 169 horsepower and 167 lb-ft of torque, along with fuel economy figures of 22 miles per gallon city and 33 miles per gallon highway. Unlike many other mid-size sedans, the four-cylinder Camry can be had with a six-speed manual transmission as an alternative to its optional six-speed automatic. A 3.5-liter V-6 engine provides a substantial power upgrade (268 horses, 248 lb-ft of torque) without sacrificing too much efficiency (19 miles per gallon city, 28 miles per gallon highway). A six-speed auto is the only available gearbox to be found with the V-6.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% interest plus $500 cash back or $1,000 total cash back on the 2011 Toyota Camry available until 08/01/2011.
