3 Great Vehicles For College Grads

A 2021 Buick Encore against a skyline

Congrats, grad! Now that you’ve earned your degree, don’t you think you’ve earned a new ride, too? If you’re looking to upgrade your car for postgrad life, these Buick and GMC vehicles are perfect for new grads!

The Buick Encore

The Buick Encore is a subcompact SUV that’s perfect for tackling postgrad life! The Encore is packed with exciting technology like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto, onboard Wi-Fi, and smart driver assistance features. The Encore runs on a peppy 138-horsepower engine that’s perfect for commuting to work or heading out on a road trip to see your far-flung friends/ Even though the Encore is small in stature, it feels very roomy on the inside, so there’s plenty of space for you and your brunch crew. There are just two trim levels of the Buick Encore, and both are affordable for recent graduates.

The GMC Terrain

Moving up in size, the GMC Terrain is a compact SUV that boosts passenger space, cargo space, and power. In fact, the Terrain can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. The Terrain has many of the same technology features as the Encore, but it comes standard with more driver assistance features than the base Encore model. Base Terrain trims also benefit from a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic climate control, and Amazon Alexa connectivity. If you want more space and utility than the Encore without a massive price hike, the GMC Terrain presents an excellent option.

The GMC Sierra 1500

Though the Sierra 1500 is the priciest option on the list as a full-size pickup, its sheer might, capabilities, and durability are well worth the investment! The Sierra 1500 can tow up to 11,800 pounds and haul up to 2,250 pounds when properly equipped, which is plenty to tow a boat or even a trailer full of furniture for your next move. With a variety of bed and cab configurations, you’ll be able to find a Sierra 1500 that has everything you need with nothing that would be superfluous for your lifestyle.
