Ford Escape

Over the past few years, crossovers have become increasingly popular due to their dependable performance and advanced safety technology. One crossover that leads the pack year after year is the Ford Escape.

Thanks to its efficient 1.5L EcoBoost® engine with Auto Start-Stop technology, the Escape can transport your teenager between their after-school job and evening ballgame without stopping for fuel very often. The Escape also includes Curve Control technology to help maintain stability and traction around sharp bends.

Speaking of on-road safety, the Escape also comes equipped with active safety features to boost awareness on busy highways and parking lots. Some of its available features include:

  • Intelligent 4WD
  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert
  • Lane-Keeping System

Nissan Altima

For most drivers, a used sedan serves as the gateway vehicle into the driving world. Often, it's the first type of vehicle most of us learn to drive. The reasons for this are obvious: easy to handle and providing superb visibility, sedans serve as a great option for someone who's been driving for six months or six decades.

Stylish, modern, and responsive, the Nissan Altima sits in an esteemed spot among its 4-door brethren. Its lively 2.5L 4-cylinder engine is ideal for both cruising around the neighborhood and keeping a steady pace on the highway. Paired with an Xtronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the Altima delivers seamless, efficient power no matter the conditions outside.

With 15.4 cubic feet of trunk space, the Altima can easily fit a dorm room full of items. Also, its 100.8 cubic feet of passenger volume makes it ideal for loading up a few friends and heading off to the weekend music festival in the city.

Ram 1500

Able to go from the job site to the campsite without missing a step, the Ram 1500 is perfect for up-and-coming entrepreneurs and outdoor lovers alike. Built using a lightweight, high-strength steel frame, this powerful workhorse remains agile without losing any of its sure-footed confidence.

Offering an assortment of V6 and V8 engine options, each model and trim is built to stand the test of time while providing years of safety and pleasure out on the road. Whether you choose the standard Quad or Crew Cab, your teen driver will have more than enough space to grow.

To help them manage its large frame, the Ram 1500 provides a full suite of smart safety features:

  • 360-degree Surround View Camera
  • Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist
  • 14.9-inch brakes
