Cadillac CT6

The 2019 Cadillac CT6 is the perfect choice for those who prefer the classic contours of a sedan, but want a safe, efficient car for trips to visit the grandkids. It achieves 32 mpg on the highway, when equipped with front-wheel drive. The model also includes a plethora of comfortable and soothing details, including the following: leather seat trim and cabin surfaces, available quad-zone climate control, heated/ventilated seats, and ambient interior lighting.

The model also integrates a couple of distinct safety features to provide backup when needed. Available Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically maintain a set distance from the vehicle up ahead, and engages the brakes when necessary.

The CT6 also incorporates a unique feature — Night Vision — to enhance visibility when driving in the dark. It’s a useful feature for those with limited vision. This technology uses an infrared camera mounted in the upper corner of the grille to detect pedestrians and large animals nearby. It then displays these images in the Driver Information Center, for easy viewing.

The Buick Encore caters to retirees who like to travel and want something with a higher seating position than a sedan. Its low ground clearance makes it easy to enter and exit for those with arthritis or other physical limitations.

And its also gets great mileage, which makes it the perfect road-trip companion. The 2019 Encore gets an EPA-estimated 33 mpg on the highway, thanks to a fuel-sipping turbocharged engine.

The available Road Trip Package includes all-weather floor mats and roof-rack crossrails, to protect the SUV’s interior and add more storage on top for extra gear or a kayak. Advanced driver-assist features like Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Lane Departure Warning pair with available All-Wheel Drive to provide a confidence boost.

2019 GMC Acadia All TerrainGMC Acadia

For retirees who want extra cargo space for transporting grandkids, pets, or home-improvement materials, the 2019 Acadia is a gratifying option. With three rows of seating, it can accommodate up to seven people. Though it can also provide 79 cubic feet of maximum cargo space when needed, thanks to collapsible back rows.

The cabin contains modern technologies to appease young passengers. An available rear-seat infotainment system with DVD player will help keep grandchildren quieter. And Apple CarPlay and SiriusXM radio will engage them with favorite apps and musical genres so you can focus on the road.

The Acadia also incorporates convenient features to accommodate a post-career life phase. The available hands-free power liftgate makes loading and unloading the SUV easier — and safer — for older limbs. Keyless Open and Start eliminates the need to fumble for the keys, and makes it possible to warm up the vehicle beforehand on a chilly day.
