What to Look for When Buying a Vehicle for a Large Family | Brownsville, TX

If you and your growing family are shopping for a vehicle to make memories in, it is important to consider spaciousness, safety, and family-friendly features. Tipton Auto has compiled a helpful list of features to consider if your big family is in need of a pre-owned vehicle.


Your vehicle needs to have enough space for both passengers and cargo to fit comfortably, which can be challenging if your family is rapidly growing. Whether you dream of being the designated soccer team shuttler or you’re just looking to go on a family vacation without paying a small fortune for airfare, you will love the Chevrolet Suburban’s spacious interior. With room for up to nine passengers and ample cargo space, the Suburban (and its look-a-likes, the Cadillac Escalade and GMC Yukon XL) is an excellent family SUV.


If you’ve found a vehicle that has plenty of space for your family, it’s time to consider how your vehicle will protect your precious cargo on the road. Families shopping for a pre-owned vehicle can enjoy top-of-the-line safety features at an affordable price on SUVs like the Honda Pilot. Depending on the year and trim level you’re interested in, the Honda Pilot offers advanced safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, and Road Departure Mitigation.

Family-friendly features


Once you’ve found a vehicle that is both big and safe enough to transport your family, it’s time to decide which extra family-friendly features you can’t live without. If you have a baby in the family, the Ford Expedition lets you keep a close eye on infants in car seats with a feature that slides the second-row seats forward by almost a foot. The Toyota Sienna minivan is also an excellent option with family-first features like power sliding doors, a rear entertainment system, an automatic power lift gate, and rear climate control.

Contact Tipton Auto sales in Brownsville today to schedule a test drive of a family-friendly vehicle like the Suburban, Pilot, Expedition, or Sienna. We can’t wait to hear from you.
