Quickest Performing 0-60 Vehicles on Our Buy Here Pay Here Lot Stafford Va

 

The driver in front of you is crawling. Their hazards are on and you have been following them on a double yellow line for the past ten miles. Finally, the road straightens up and the beautifully dashed passing line appears for you. You move over and slam your foot onto the gas pedal. The car undramatically slugs past the fully loaded minivan with a mattress sticking out. The movement brings you far less satisfaction than you were hoping for. Any driver who has ever truly needed a quickly timed engine knows the frustration of a sluggish 0-60.

 

We have compiled the quickest 0-60 mph cars on our Buy Here Pay Here lot at Airport Auto Sales in Richmond, VA

 

0-60 mph speed is often a forgotten spec when looking at used cars in Richmond, Va but it can be completely satisfying to be able to hit the gas and simply go. Many of the vehicles that made our quickest to accelerate list surprised us. When thinking of the fastest used cars in Richmond, Va, some vehicles like the 2008 Chevy Trailblazer jumps out as a true underdog.

Two vehicles on our quickest 0-60 mph list that did not surprise us were our 2011 Nissan Altima and our 2010 Nissan Maxima on our Buy Here Pay Here lot. Both vehicles come with a powerful 3.5L V6. The 2011 Nissan Altima roars into the finish line in 6.2 seconds with 270 horsepower at 6000 rpms and 258 lbs per ft of torque at 4400 rpms. To top off this wonderfully quick car is the amazing fuel mileage it gets. With 20 city and 27 highway you will barely notice that you own a V6 except when you step on the gas. The 2010 Nissan Maxima is equally amazing, if not a little better. The Maxima performs at 290 horsepower at 6400 rpms and 261 lbs per ft of torque at 4400 rpms. Although a little less impressive than the Altima with 19 city and 26 highway mpg, the Maxima wins the speed race on our list at 5.7 seconds for 0-60mph.

Some surprising competitors on our quickest 0-60 mph list on our Buy Here Pay Here lot at Airport Auto Sales were the 2006 Cadillac DTS and the 2007 Cadillac CTS. While not surprising for quality, most people do not expect grandma or grandpa to be able to blow past you in a gold Cadillac. However, the Cadillac CTS and DTS prove themselves to be some of the quickest used cars in Richmond, Va. Despite weighing more than the average sedan, despite having trunk space big enough to stuff a body, despite being a favorite among the more senior customer crowd, the Cadillac DTS and CTS breeze past the competition. The 2006 Cadillac DTS has a monstrous 4.6L V8 that performs at 6.9 seconds 0-60 with 291 horsepower at 5600 rpms and 286 lbs per ft of torque at 4400 rpms. For such a monstrous car and engine, the 17 city and 24 highway mpg are noteworthy. The Cadillac CTS ties with our fastest Maxima at 5.7 seconds 0-60mpg. With a powerful 3.6L V6 the CTS produces 255 horsepower at 6200 rpms and 252 lbs per ft of torque at 3100 rpms. The CTS is even better with gas mileage of 18 city and 27 highway.

The truest underdogs to appear on our quickest 0-60 cars on our Buy Here Pay Here lot were the 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer and the 2004 GMC Yukon xL Denali. When looking at the used cars in Richmond, Va SUVs were far from our minds. We pulled sporty coupes and sedans expecting them to be the quickest. However, it was a pair of hard-working SUVs from Chevrolet and GMC that pulled into the ranks. While our 2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer is competitive at 6.7 seconds for 0-60 mpg with its 4.2L V6, the other V8 option among the used cars in Richmond, Va can perform at 5.5 seconds. The 2004 GMC Yukon Denali, despite its large size, rolled into the finish line at 6.1 seconds. While neither SUV will be winning any awards for fuel mileage, they can be incredibly satisfying to drive.

Our quickest 0-60 mph list on our Buy Here Pay Here list at Airport Auto Sales proves that you cannot judge a book by its cover, or rather a car’s performance by a closed hood. Test drive these used cars in Richmond, Va and experience for yourself the great driving satisfaction you will get when pressing on the gas pedal. No more sluggish passing for you!
