Winter Texans | Harlingen, TX
Harlingen, Texas, is an ideal destination for retirees, whether you stay here year-round or just consider yourself a winter Texan, flocking down from the north in the winter to avoid the snow and ice. However long you plan to spend here, you need a vehicle suited to your retirement — one that rewards your decades of hard work and supports your new free lifestyle, but also one with the safety technologies you prioritize when driving around the grandkids. We recommend the Toyota Avalon, Highlander, Tacoma or Tundra.
The Toyota Avalon is a luxurious full-size sedan that gets up to 32 mpg on the highway; it’s also available as a hybrid, earning up to 44 mpg on the highway.1,2 This makes the Avalon ideal for retirees who plan to take lots of road trips to see the country. The interior is all about comfort and elegance, but most importantly, the Avalon comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite of driver assist safety technologies.
Prefer an SUV? Go with the Toyota Highlander, also available as a hybrid model for increased fuel savings. The Highlander offers seating for up to eight, great if you drive regularly with the family or if you just need the space to pack your bags for your own road trips. Among its safety technologies are Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control.
If you want an efficient truck for towing small boats and trailers out toward South Padre Island and the Gulf Coast, consider the Toyota Tacoma, which earns up to 22 mpg on the highway and is still able to tow up to 6,800 pounds when properly equipped.3
If your vision for your retirement includes big boats on the Gulf and a big RV to see the country, consider the Toyota Tundra, which can tow more than 10,000 pounds when properly equipped.
