So, you’re a single guy. You have a limited budget. BUT, you want an impressive set of wheels.
Why not consider something pre-owned… and AWESOME?
Car models change relatively slowly these days, so most people won’t know whether your preowned car is something new or slightly used. Or, you can view it as driving a classic that you’re committed to.
Either way, the single guy vehicles on our list will send the right message to your family, friends, co-workers… and anyone else you want to attract.
Ford F-150 pick-up truck
Sometimes, a sports car is simply too obvious a ride for certain single guys. That’s why our top option is a little more of a surprise: The Ford-150 pick-up truck.
A muscle car says one thing. A truck says something different. It communicates that you can fix a leaky pipe, haul supplies to make home repairs and are able to toss a canoe or bike in the back for an afternoon of adventure.
If you view yourself as a rugged individual and want the world to see you the same way, purchasing a truck could be a smart move. Plus, because of the popularity and longevity of the F-series, there is plenty of used inventory available, and it’s likely you’ll find a ride you like at a price you can afford.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Nothing says durable, practical and potential dad material like the Jeep Grand Cherokee. A Jeep communicates the values most moms, managers and potential long-term partners find very, very attractive.
The Grand Cherokee is the “less extreme” Jeep. While it’s practical, it has a comfortable interior that makes it great for dates and nights on the town. It’s one of the few vehicles that can haul supplies from Home Depot, perform well off-road and look impressive when left with a valet at a black tie event.
A Jeep Grand Cherokee could be the perfect used car for now and to set the foundation for your future.
With climate change becoming a BIG issue in people’s lives, more and more are prioritizing going green. Unfortunately, many environmentally friendly car models, such as the Tesla, are cost prohibitive and there are few used models available. The exception is the Toyota Prius.
It’s a practical car that communicates that you’re committed to doing the right thing for the planet. Moms, managers and prospective partners will respect your choice.
A muscle car is the only right — or acceptable — option for some guys.
If it’s your dream and what you imagine yourself driving everywhere in, the Chevrolet Camaro should be in your consideration set. It includes a wide range of models from many production years, so it’s likely that you can find one that expresses your personality and has the perfect engine for you, all at a price that you can afford.
If you want horsepower, Horsepower or HORSEPOWER, you will be able to find a Camaro that will satisfy you.
Some guys are Camaro people. Others are Mustang people. If you prefer your sports car with a little more beef, the Mustang could be right for you. It has a range of models and engine availabilities that make it a used car buyer’s dream. When it comes to shopping for Mustangs, consider yourself a preowned connoisseur seeking out your dream model.
When you drive up in your Mustang, get ready. You WILL have a story to tell. Your mom, boss, friends and significant other will know what you’re about when you drive up in YOUR choice of Mustang.
If you don’t care what others think — or maybe if you do — the Dodge Challenger could be the perfect preowned model for you. This is a car known for its engine, along with the fact that it offers a perfect balance of power, sportiness and comfort. It’s an awesome car for a road trip or date night. Some might question whether you should show up to work in it, but it’s a sure thing coworkers will envy your ride.
Good things come in small packages. And when you’re single, small can sometimes be a VERY good thing. Most single guys don’t have to be practical. No baby seats in the back seat. That’s why this could be the perfect time in life to consider the Mazda Miata. This legendary two-seater is sure to demand attention. It’s a great driving car with awesome handling. If you want to communicate that practicality and sensibility AREN’T your thing, this is the vehicle to do it in.
When it comes to two seaters, there are Miata people, who appreciate sporty compactness. Then there are Corvette drivers, who like the long, lean lines that remind them of racing cars.
The Corvette is one of the most influential and stylish vehicles in its class. Sure, it’s a little costly, but there are many models and years available, and you might be able to find an impressive bargain. Mom may not like it. Your manager will question it. Some friends may not trust riding in it. However, it’s awesome performance will allow you to test the limits of your driving skills. It’s exterior will attract a lot of attention every time you drive down the street.
You only get to be single once (or twice or three times) and if you can afford it, the Corvette will let you make the most of it.
Are you all about luxury, elegance and style? The Audi A5 could be the ideal model for you. Audi is known for its top-tier vehicle engineering, stylish exteriors and elegant interiors that are packed with innovative features. Everything about this vehicle is sure to impress moms, coworkers, friends and dates. It’s also a car you can grow into over the long term.
Volkswagen Golf GTI
If you’re a smart and sensible guy, the Golf GTI could be an awesome option for you. It’s a fun car that’s affordable for most budgets. It is one of the sleekest hatchbacks on the market today. PLUS it offers top notch performance and handling.
It may not be the most impressive car on our list, but it is one dates and their moms are likely to both fall in love with.
