Best used car for summer 2022

A post about the best used vehicles you can buy in the US and how they are great for practicality, running costs, and many other talking points.


Where are you going this summer? Are you heading to the beach with several friends, or maybe to a canyon in the mountains? Or you just want to go on a short road trip and see where it takes you. Whatever your plans, it’s essential that your car can handle the tasks at hand. That’s why I’ve compiled this list of cars that will get you where you need to go. So, below you’ll see the list of the best vehicles for US summer trips in 2022.

Toyota Camry

In search of a cozy and reliable car for regular trips to nature within Indiana state, the Toyota Camry is one of your best bets. It’s affordable and comfortable, plus it performs well on the road. In fact, when you consider all its options and amenities (not to mention its standard safety set), it’s hard to find another used car that can compete with it in terms of value and performance.

It also comes with an impressive array of standard features, including air conditioning and power windows/locks/mirrors. Plus, if you want to get even more value out of your purchase—and boost its resale value down the road—you can always add options like multitouch display and electronic contactless keys.

The Camry has been around since 1983 but was redesigned for 2018 after being completely overhauled by designers at Calty Design Research Inc., which also worked on Toyota vehicles like the Camry Hybrid sedan/hatchback series.

Because this model has been redesigned for current drivers’ needs (and tastes), there aren’t many flaws or drawbacks worth mentioning, other than maybe needing some maintenance here and there because no vehicle lasts forever without regular service checks.

Ford Explorer

Being in need of a car that can take you and your family on summer road trips and still handle the daily commute, it’s hard to go wrong with Ford Explorer. The model has been known since 1996 and, over the years, has earned praise for its roomy interior and SUV-like design. It’s also got solid safety ratings—the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded it their Top Safety Pick+ designation in 2017.


Jeep Cherokee

The Jeep Cherokee is one of the best SUVs for summer 2022. It’s a great choice for big families, with lots of room and comfort for everyone. The Cherokee also has impressive off-road capabilities, which means it can handle anything from city driving to the beach, forest trails, and even riverside camping trips.

The SUV can be bought in various trims, including Sport, Latitude, and Limited models. The used vehicle car lot of Indy Auto Man can offer a variety of Jeeps at a reasonable price. You can choose between front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, depending on your preferences and budget (although we’d recommend going with 4WD).

Chevrolet Colorado


The Chevrolet Colorado is a compact truck that has been around since 2004. It comes in both standard and crew cab versions, and there are four trim levels to choose from LS, LT, Z71, and ZR2. The engines range from a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine with 193 horsepower all the way up to a 3.6-liter V6 with 308 horsepower. The EPA estimates fuel economy at 16/21 mpg city/highway for the four-cylinder models and 17/23 mpg city/highway for V6 models; you can expect these numbers to change slightly when you adjust driving habits to meet your needs based on what you plan on using your car for (e.g. if you tow a trailer or go off-road).

The Colorado is suitable for families because it offers excellent storage space: there are cargo areas behind both rows of seats and under each rear seat cushion (lifted by flipping up its backrest). There’s also plenty of room inside with seating capacity ranging from five people in standard cab versions all the way up to seven people with extended cab options. So whether you want room for kids or just want more space overall during long journeys like camping trips or fishing excursions, this vehicle will be able to accommodate everyone!

Honda CR-V

The Honda CR-V is a legendary vehicle, and it’s also a great used car for a couple with friends, so it’s no wonder that it’s the best choice for summer 2022. The CR-V has seating for up to five passengers, so there’s plenty of room for everyone. It comes equipped with all the latest innovations—like heated seats and wireless charging—that make long drives more comfortable than ever. The CR-V is among the safest SUVs on the road today based on independent crash tests. There are a lot of features to help you avoid accidents.

The used Honda CR-V may miss some advanced options, but that doesn’t mean it can’t still drive you wherever you want this summer…or any other time of year!

Hyundai Elantra

The Hyundai Elantra is a great used car for just about everyone. It’s a solid performer on the road, with a good amount of power and decent fuel economy. It has safety features like lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, and blind spot detection. The Hyundai Elantra is available in several trims, so you can get one that’s right for your needs—whether you need to haul around lots of stuff or just want something small enough to park easily.

The Hyundai Elantra makes an excellent first car thanks to its reliability and affordability; it gets great gas mileage (26-32 mpg city / 34-37 highway) but isn’t too tiny, so it’ll fit comfortably in most parking spots; plus all models are equipped with air conditioning, power windows/locks/mirrors as well as cruise control so even if there’s no A/C it won’t feel too hot inside during those hot summer days!

If you don’t already have another vehicle, then getting this one would work perfectly since it can do everything from commuting back home after work.

Kia Forte

  • Searching for your first car? The Kia Forte is a good choice. The Kia Forte is one of the nice used cars for summers because it has plenty of room and can handle a lot of passengers. The fuel economy is also pretty good at 30 mpg combined, so you won’t have to worry about spending too much on gas over time.

  • As a bonus, it comes with Android Auto integration and Apple CarPlay so that you can easily sync up your phone for navigation purposes when driving long distances or if you need more entertainment options while on road trips!

Nissan Frontier Pickup Truck

The Nissan Frontier Pickup Truck is a very versatile vehicle. It’s the kind of truck that can be used for work and play, but it’s also great for families. This vehicle will do the job effortlessly if you need to carry cargo or tow something. The Frontier features plenty of space, power, and value making it an excellent choice if you’re looking for a new car this summer.

Toyota Highlander

The Toyota Highlander is an excellent pick for the summer of 2022. It has many features that make it unforgettable, including its leather seats. These seats are soft, smooth, and smell like new cars do when you first buy them. If you have kids, they will love the roomy backseat where they can sit comfortably while you drive around town. The third row of seats also has leg space so long as no one is sitting in front of them. And let’s not forget about how great this SUV looks! Its exterior design is sleek and stylish and will make other drivers jealous when they see what you’re driving around town!

Subaru Impreza/WRX

The Subaru Impreza/WRX is a compact car with excellent fuel economy, plenty of power, and speed for an affordable price. It has a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with turbo capabilities and a 5-speed manual transmission, which makes it great for city driving but also offers the fun of a sports car when you get on the highway or have some fun winding roads ahead of you.

These are the best used cars for summer 2022

You’re probably trying to decide between buying a new car and a used one. Used is the best choice if you’re in the market for a first car. If you’re searching for a family car, used is also your best option.

We hope this list helps you find the perfect car. Got some thoughts, but still not sure which car is the best option for you? Check them all at Indy Auto Man used car center.
