The Acura MDX

A car is an orchestration of thousands of complex, moving and synchronizing parts. It should be more than a fashion accessory.  More than a status symbol in the form of a badge.  Nowhere is this more true than in an Acura.  Because a car, especially a luxury car, should be one of substance.

When we launched the Acura Legend in 1986, its very existence constituted a first. In the years since, we’ve never stopped innovating. As we enter our second quarter-century, we continue to build on what we’ve learned, as well as search for new breakthroughs. Because when you’re building the next generation of luxury vehicles, you don’t stick with the status quo – you advance.

What’s Your Plan this Father’s Day?

Most likely you are not going to go out and purchase your dad a car for Fathers Day, but if you are the son or daughter of the year, then TrueCar.com has done some research that surprisingly shows the cars that our dads want.

“Unlike the list of vehicles men prefer, which includes the Porsche 911 in the top spot, the data shows that fathers have traded in speed for practical vehicles with a back seat,” said Kristen Andersson, Senior Analyst at TrueCar.com. “We’re finding that fathers need a fuel-efficient car for commuting to work and weekend activities.”

The research showed many dads leaning towards sedans, trucks, and minivans.  Although this seems surprising, it makes sense.  Fathers, with children, want space for rides to football practice and more importantly a vehicle that provides safety for loved ones.

Read more on the Top 10 cars your Dad really wants. 

eCarOne in Carrollton, would love to help you out this Father’s Day and help you find the perfect gift for your dad.  Come out and take a look at our luxury used cars today.

GRAND SPORT COUPE & CONVERTIBLE:

Those learnings applied, today’s Grand Sport coupe offers one of the best combinations of all-out performance and efficiency of any sports car.

The 2012 Toyota Camry

With each day bringing new advancements to the way we live and work, shouldn’t your car be advanced too? Meet the reinvented 2012 Toyota Camry, the car designed to fit you and your 21st century lifestyle. You’re no doubt familiar with Camry; it’s America’s best-selling car.  And over the past 25 years, it’s become the standard for quality. In fact, 90% of all Camrys sold in the last 15 years are still on the road. Camry is more luxurious, with a redesigned interior. It’s now available with new multimedia systems. And the Camry Hybrid LE now offers an estimated 43 city mpg. Quite simply, the 2012 Camry is what you’ve come to expect from this legendary sedan. The reinvented Camry is ready. Are you?

Enhanced Space

To help create Camry’s roomy environment, we sculpted the lower door panels to allow for more lateral knee room and reshaped the headlining for greater head room. The general sense of spaciousness, too, was enhanced by opening up the outside view. We engineered pillars that were more streamlined. Upper door surfaces and the top of the instrument panel were reshaped. Even the sun visors were repositioned to further open the forward view.

Crafted Quiet

Employing sound-imaging instruments, extensive tests were conducted to pinpoint areas where road and engine noise was entering the cabin. Additional sound-absorbing measures were then taken in those areas to help create Camry’s whisper-quiet ride.

Ready Versatility

To help you transport longer items, such as snow skis or that towering new floor lamp, Camry’s 60/40 split fold-down rear seat drops to create a handy pass-through to the voluminous trunk.

SE V6 Power

Right feet rejoice. The available 3.5-liter V6 DOHC 24-valve Dual VVT-i engine produces an impressive 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque, while still achieving an EPA-estimated 30 highway mpg rating. Paired with the 6-speed automatic transmission with sequential shift and paddle shifters, this powerplant delivers a driving experience that’s nothing short of exhilarating.

Sport Handling

Improving handling dynamics typically involves suspension components. But Camry’s impressive agility was also augmented by making the steering more responsive. To accomplish this, we not only increased the steering gear ratio, but also optimized the Electric Power Steering system for more sensitivity. Clearly, Camry turns more than just heads.

18-In. Alloy Wheels

Style your ride. Standard on the Camry SE V6, these sharp 18-in. alloy wheels offer sporty performance, not to mention sporty looks.

Moonroof

Things are looking up. Camry’s remarkable driving experience is made even more uplifting with an available power tilt/slide moonroof, complete with sliding sunshade.
