As the days get longer and warmer, it’s time to start planning summer activities with your car. If you’re at a loss for which used vehicle to choose, why not consider some of Autotrader’s top picks for hot weather adventures?
Ford F-150 - Whether you’re taking this pickup to an early morning tailgate or a high-class picnic, the Blue Oval has you covered. You can even fit a full-size jetski in the bed for vacations at the lake.
Jeep Wrangler - Described by Autotrader as “the epitome of cool”, this SUV is perfect for a day at the beach, thanks to its convertible top and removable doors. This vehicle is also a champ on rugged mountain trails.
Ford F-250 - If you’re in the market for something bigger than a standard pickup, consider this vehicle. It’s ideal for towing a boat or even an RV.
Chevrolet Silverado 2500 - Much like the Ford SuperDuty, this pickup makes short work of pulling mobile homes or full-size RVs. It’s a great option if you need a work truck during the week and a family hauler for days off.
Still undecided? You can take all of these cars for a test drive at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington today. Don’t forget to check out our complete used automobile inventory, which includes over 200 vehicles.

If you need a vehicle that can cart your household around and help with the heavy lifting, consider a used 2013 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab. With a spacious cabin for people and a nearly indestructible bed for cargo, this pickup strikes the perfect balance between family car and work truck.
In the front of the Double Cab, the captain and copilot get comfy bucket chairs with plenty of support for longer car journeys. An Edmunds review describes the backseat of the Double Cab as “surprisingly adult-friendly”. If you need the extra cargo space, this row can be folded down into a 60/40 split.
It may seem odd to describe the back of a pickup truck as ‘ready for action’, but the Tacoma can handle anything cumbersome object you throw at it. Jagged and heavy items like cycles and sofas are no match for the special composite material in the bedliner. With this high-tech finish, there’s no need to worry about scratches or dents.
Are you ready to have the best of both worlds? Take a pre-owned Tacoma for a spin at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington. You can also check out our complete used pickup inventory online now.

Everyone can enjoy the leather upholstery throughout the interior. Both rows come with oodles of head and legroom, with an Edmunds review promising ample space in back for three adults.
The highly evolved MyLincoln Touch infotainment system comes with an 8-inch touchscreen and instrument cluster display. Whether everyone is jamming out to The Wiggles or Led Zeppelin, the 10-speaker stereo and satellite radio are sure to enhance your road trip. If you prefer to drive in silence, then you’ll love this vehicle's exceptionally quiet interior, even at highway speeds. The MKX is an absolute pleasure on the road, thanks to its dexterous steering and sharp handling.
