COVID-19 has affected businesses everywhere, and car dealerships are no exception. With compelling deals from automakers, and factory production shut down for months, many models are now in short supply. In this Pandemic situation, people prefer private transports than public transports. Huge market demand for low- inventory cars increases.
We’ve put together a list of low-inventory vehicles, plus great alternatives that are more widely available. Let’s have a look at some low- inventory alternatives.
The Kia Telluride isn’t afraid to kick up some dirt. And while it’s classified as a mid-size SUV, it has the size and power. Luckily, there are plenty of great alternatives to it.
1. The Toyota Highlander is a natural alternative with similar capability and performance. Combine that with proven reliability, and you’re ready for a family-friendly adventure.
2. With the Ford Explorer, a more powerful turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque is standard.
3. For something more compact, the Kia Sorento is available at a lower starting MSRP. However, you’ll have to step up to a higher trim for performance and features comparable to the Tellurides.
Toyota Tacoma is famous among fans by the name of “Taco”. It’s a mid-size pickup truck with plenty of off-road credibilities. Some alternatives to it are also present.
1. As far as alternatives go, the full-size Ford F-150 is a strong contender. Each model has more towing capacity than a comparably equipped Tacoma, with the F-150 Raptor able to tow nearly twice as much.
2. If you’re looking for something that’s more similar in size to the compact Tacoma, check out the Ford Ranger. While this pickup offers less standard driver-assistive and technology features, you do get a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces more horsepower and torque than the Tacoma.
Hyundai Palisade is the perfect one for the family. With the Hyundai Palisade, they can arrive in style. This three-row SUV makes it happen with a premium interior available on the Palisade Limited model.
1. If you can’t purchase Palisade, try the Volkswagen Atlas. This newer addition to the Volkswagen lineup brings a familiar level of comfort and sophistication.
2. Other premium SUV options include the Toyota Highlander Limited, featuring an impressively premium cabin.
3. If you like innovative features, check out the Honda Pilot. The Pilot Touring combines a comfortable interior with one-touch access to its third-row seats. That’s really great for family life. You can also go through it.
Sometimes you want the experience of a truck in the form of an SUV. The legendary Toyota 4Runner delivers, with body-on-frame construction and plenty of off-road prowess.
1. If you don’t want to purchase a 4Runner and only plan to hit the trail occasionally, the Toyota Highlander trades some ruggedness for road manners.
2. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is another great SUV with availability. While it doesn’t bring as much off-road attitude as the 4Runner, it’s plenty capable in its own right. The interior is also a nice place to be, and the Cherokee is also available at a lower starting MSRP.
