Mojo Deals: American vs. Import

This week’s new car is the 2011 Toyota Camry base model. The Camry is a well-known player in the midsize family sedan market. It offers a smooth ride and good fuel-efficiency, but leaves some things to be desired. A manual transmission is standard in the base model, meaning you have to pay extra for automatic. Also standard is a 2.5L 4-Cyl engine that doesn’t impress most drivers. Additionally, the car is without a sunroof, leather interior, and navigation sytem. The Camry is a nice car, and absolutely acceptable as a family sedan, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price, we bet you can get a lot more for your money. First, let’s take a look at the Camry and its specs:

New Car

Engine: 2.5L 4-Cyl
Power: 169hp and 167tq
Interior Space: 116.4 cu. ft.
MSRP: $22,000

So $22k gets you a solid, but not spectacular midsize sedan. However, now more than ever, Americans are choosing to support American auto companies instead of buying imported vehicles. If this is the way you shop, you’re in luck! We believe that for the same price as this Japanese entry-level sedan, you can ride in American luxury! Let’s see what we can find on Mojo…

As you can see, there are many ways to make your dollar go farther when you’ve got the Mojo price on a used vehicle. Each of our used vehicles has a sunroof and leather interior, as well as standard automatic transmission. All three also possess larger V6 engines with significantly more horsepower and torque than the Toyota. The Cadillac and the Camry have approximately the same interior capacity, but the Chrysler and the Lincoln are much roomier. The STS and the 300 even have factory navigation systems! There’s no question that with Mojo on your side, you can have an American luxury sedan, but pay entry-level import prices. Your family and your country will thank you!
