However, it’s impressive how test driving the car you thought you wanted can change how you feel about it after the first time you press the gas pedal.

Everyone needs a dependable and durable off-road vehicle for those weekend adventures in Texas, and the Jeep Wrangler is the king of off-road adventures. Unfortunately, the newly updated Wranglers have so many engine options to choose from it can be overwhelming, starting with the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that comes with 285 horses under the hood. But if you’re looking for a Wrangler that can conquer any terrain, the 6.4-liter V8 will destroy anything you put in its path.
Dodge Ram 1500 4WD
Texas drivers love their trucks, and the Dodge Ram 1500 4WD proves that everything is bigger in Texas! With both V6 and V8 engine options available that are assisted by a 48-volt hybrid system, you’ll be able to tow up to 12,750 pounds while also packing an extra 2,320 pounds of payload. To top it off on the newer Ram 1500 models, Dodge has redesigned the interior to be more luxurious with high-tech features like an eye-popping 12.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a premium sound system, and more.
With a standard V6 300-horsepower engine, the Dodge Charger feels like a sedan on steroids. And if you want to feel like a superhero behind the wheel, the Charger R/T Scat Pack with a Hemi V8 under the hood comes with 485 horses. Inside, you’ll discover a comfortably spacious interior for everyone and some high-tech infotainment features.
Mercedes is the epitome of luxury styling and sports-inspired driving experience, and the E-Class is no different. Even with the base E350 model, you’ll find a turbocharged four-cylinder 255-horsepower engine that comes with either all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive. If you want to spring for the even classier E450 model, the turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine with 362 horses will straight up blow your hair back. The interior luxury features that come standard are even more impressive. They include a head-up display, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, heated steering wheel, passive entry, multi-contour front seats with massage functions, and optional air suspension.
Nothing can turn heads quite like driving old school American muscle with a new school look around Texas. And thanks to the standard V6, all-wheel-drive Dodge Challenger, you can do just that. If you’re looking for even more meat on the bone, the R/T models are the way to go. They come with either a 5.7-liter engine pulled by 375 horses or a possessed 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine with 485-horsepower.
BMW 5 Series
For years, BMW has made some of the most comfortable, stylish, and aggressively designed precision driving cars and SUVs. And the 5 Series continues in that tradition with two engine options to choose from, starting with the standard four-cylinder 530i. The second engine option is the beefier six-cylinder 540i. The high-quality design and features don’t disappoint on the inside either, thanks to a 12.3-inch infotainment display and other features that include navigation, Bluetooth audio, USB ports, and more.
Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD
One of the most popular cars we’ve leased in 2022 is the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4WD. With an impressive amount of legroom and comfort inside, a powerful engine, and surprisingly durable off-road capabilities, it’s easy to see why our customers love it so much. Under the hood, you’ll discover a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 360-horsepower and a four-wheel-drive automatic transmission. All of that power delivers a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds for those weekend trips with the toys.
Mitsubishi Outlander 2wd
The Mitsubishi Outlander is powered by an inline-four-cylinder 2.5-liter engine with 181-horsepower that’s seamlessly paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. In addition, the Outlander has recently benefited from a head-to-toe makeover that’s added extra legroom and some fancy technology. Whether it’s the 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system or the 10-speaker Bose audio system that comes standard, you’ll love cruising around Texas in your new Outlander.
If you’re searching for a reliable and comfortable sedan for your daily commute and longer trips with the family, the Honda Accord is the way to go. This peppy car comes with two different engine options. The first is the standard 1.5-liter four-cylinder 192-horsepower engine. But for a little extra oomph on the road, the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 252-horsepower engine is hard to resist. Once you sit inside your new Accord, you’ll quickly be blown away by the added legroom, and interior design focused on ease of use and comfortability.
Land Rover Range Rover Velar
Range Rover has become one of the most popular SUV makers across Texas. Known for its focus on reliability, luxury comfort, and styling, the Land Rover Range Rover Velar doesn’t disappoint and exceeds all expectations. With a standard 247-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, you’ll love the handling and performance. However, for those who want a little extra Texas under the hood, the bigger, bolder, and more powerful turbocharged and supercharged 3.0-liter inline-six engines are the way to go. They offer 335-horsepower and 395-horsepower, respectively.
